Moore Maker drop point by Canal Street?

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.

Moore Maker drop point by Canal Street?

I would be grateful for opinions as to whether or not Canal Street made this Moore Maker branded drop point hunter. It is approximately 8" long and is a model 6101.

The Canal Street drop points had two large compression rivets in the handles, not the spun on pins. Their guard was also smaller. The knife in the photo definitely isn't Canal Street, maybe Queen?

Here are a couple of examples of Canal Street drop points, if I recall correctly I think the only one we made for Moore Maker was a mesquite handled one. Pretty certain I don't have one but I'll check tomorrow. Top knife is the older style. This one's a proto but they were just like it:

Next up is the newer style handled in moose, this is the style that was used for Moore Maker's mesquite knife:

My pleasure Ralph, I'm always happy to help ::handshake::

Tom, I think you're right, it looks exactly like Utica construction.

My guess on the posted knife would be Queen. Though I don't think that Queen ever used that pattern for their own knives. Maybe they did?

Utica would be a guess, as others have said, but I have not seen Utica make any stag handled knives.

If it was my knife I would send pics to Moore Maker - they would probably tell you who made it.
