Many thanks gentleman, for your kind words.
I am saddened to see the demise of Canal Street, as they produced some magnificent knives. My only regret is that i didn't buy more as they appealed to me. Still there are still some bargains to be had.
One good thing about the closure of Canal Street, is that Wally went out on his own terms, not like Schrade, who had the Storm Troopers arrive on their door one dark and gloomy morning. He destroyed everything, so there will be no China Made Canal Street Cutlery knives flooding the market. "What there is, is what there is".
