The 2015 Blade Forum pocketknife

Former Schrade President Walley Gardner and principal Joe Hufnagel joined with nine master cutlers to form a group of US craftsmen with over 300 years of combined knife making experience. The company they created is located in upstate New York where a long and rich tradition of quality knife making dates back to the 19th century.

The 2015 Blade Forum pocketknife

Postby Old Hunter » Fri Nov 27, 2015 5:01 pm

I just received my USPS package containing the last knife that Canal Street Cutlery will make (from what I have read). This is a 3-7/8" serpentine frame with Clip Main and Sheepfoot Secondary 440C blades on a single spring. The Birdseye rivet design on Mexican Bocote wood makes it doubly unique. OH

That is a beauty! I wonder if they have any left, or were they preordered?

Dale, it was a pre-order, but usually some are sold on the classified section immediately. OH

That is a beauty in deed. I have been in the factory as these were being made and I wish I had known about them so I could have ordered one for myself.

This particular knife has a pinned shield as well, really cool how they did this process. The final knives should be finished up and shipped out very soon. This is the last knife to be produced by Canal Street Cutlery, in the Canal Street Factory. I asked if there were going to be more of them made than what The Blade Forum ordered, however, looks like they will only have enough materials to build the order. Dang shame though, after handling this knife, I would have bought half a dozen myself. I normally do not carry a knife, I know, I know....here I am a collector and I don't even carry one, however, I would carry this one. Fits perfectly in the pocket, I don't like anything in my pockets like keys, change ect..However, I would make an exception for this little gem.

Gents, thanks for the compliments - you wouldn't believe how light this knife is. I only buy one of a given collectors knife, but several of the Blade Forum members buy several, keep the one/ones they like best and sell the rest. You will find them pop up on the Blade forum classifieds as soon as the shipping begins (three batches on this run, first batch shipping now). I would assume all you guys are registered at Blade Forum too, but you must be registered to buy off the classifieds. Many folks state they missed out on ordering and are looking for one - you will need to be quick. Good Luck, OH

Clever and practical design, quality materials, well-executed...

Thanks and best wishes to Wally, Eric, and everyone else who had a hand in making this knife.

Thanks also to Barry, Charlie, and everyone else who kept the annual BladeForums knife going.

No two of these are alike - Will yours really has some nice grain to the wood handles. OH
