Canal Street Lockback ????

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.

Guys if you'll go back and reread what I wrote about my prior experience with this seller you'll see that her currently less than completely ethical business practices are in keeping with what I've seen out of her in the past. You don't sell factory seconds without identifying them as such if you're trying to be honest and forthcoming about your merchandise.

I know this seller and have dealt with her over ebay and in person in her shop. Her husband is a collector as well. Her prices are usually high and she only sells what her husband doesn't want.

She does not know knives that well and usually relies on what the person she buys them from for her information, but her husband does know knives. I always view her listings and the knives in her shop very closely and make my own determination.

I have purchased some very good pieces from her but have stayed away from way more than I have bought.

Phil & Tom what you describe explains the situation: Seller is primarily a business-woman, we are primarily collectors. Hence our objectives are different. Business person wants money, knife collector wants truth about knife.
