My 2 Favorite CSC

I have owned about 12 Canal Street Cutlery folding knives. All are well made satisfying to own knives, but these 2 speak to me in a more personal, friendly way. It is as though they possess a personality in addition to their handsome appearance and smooth blade action. These 2 seem more like custom knives than production ones.
Eric's Jack is 3 3/8", Stag handle & 440C clip blade, made in 2014. This is the epitomy of a Jack knife, the essential heart & soul.

2015 BladeForums Serpentine Double End Jack with Bocote handles edges rounded to liners and 440C blades, single spring, classy & slim. This is a 'Do-It-All' knife, from field dress ole Whitey to slice your fresh tomato. I love it.

Eric "ea42" is the cutler who built these knives, i think from start to finish so they actually are custom made, sole authorship knives.
Thank you Eric.

Those are both wonderful knives Roland. Even more special as Eric had a hand in it.

Two Great Choices Roland. I love them both as well. I am also very partial to the Pinch Lock Backs, Barlows and Boys Knives as well. Who am I kidding, I love all of my Canal Street Knives....LOL

I also have both of those. Some of the nicest to come out of CSC, IMO. Even more so knowing that Eric had a hand in crafting them!

Thanks for your posts. Part of why i so like these 2 is that they are just 'essential knife' there are no embellishments, they are pure knife.
Eric's Jack is just the perfect Jack that i have just now decided it will not go back into the box. It's going into my pocket and it will be in my pocket when i finally keel over. This is The Knife i have been looking for ! It took awhile to find it and then to realize it. Making it my permanent EDC is definitely the right thing for me to do.

I was wondering what are the differences between the CSC "Eric's Jack" and their new Boy's knife in stag. I have read a lot of stuff on the Eric's Jack knife and it seems amazing. I have one of their new Boy's knives in stag on reserve, so I am kinda hoping they are very similar.:)

Eric's Jack was made at Canal Street Cutlery. I think the Boy's Knife you are referring to is a GEC made knife. If i get a stag Boy's knife i can do comparison pictures.

I think there were only 100 "Eric's Jack" made. If you see one for sale it likely won't last long. Original price was just over $100 i think.

Canal Street actually produced Boys Knives with quite a few handle materials.

I have the following:

Eric's Jack
Whitetail Antler
Yellow Canvas Micarta
Cocoabola
Black Micarta
Smooth Red Bone
Scarlet Bone- Enroute from Redhill Cutlery (One of the Co-op knives)

Poster says: "I have one of their new Boy's knives in stag on reserve".
This surely is a reference to GEC ?
Or, is the CSC Co-op doing a run of Boy's knives with Stag for Red Hill Cutlery ?

KJ,

They are Canal Street Co-op knives exclusive to Redhill Cutlery. They sold out all of the Canal Street Co-op knives that Redhill listed on their website. There was a Stag Boy's Knife....

Canal Street Co-op can't produce the knives faster than Redhill Cutlery can sell them, keeps your eyes and ears open and be prepared to react quickly if you want a Canal Street Co-op knife.....lol

Quantities are very limited...Like the Scarlet Bone Boy's Knife....less than 12 produced and no they are not numbered.
