Canal Street Co-op Knives

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.

Glenn I PM'd Eric several days ago and he told me then he was one of the cutlers involved in this new endeavor. Like you, I think he's a very skilled knife maker as well as a real good guy. :)

I'm definitely involved folks, actually made all those sample knives Red Hill has in their photos. Their pictures came out kind of weird, looks like the blades shrunk lol! I didn't take any shots of what I made except for this one of the Bowie/trapper set:

I'm really excited about this, should be a lot of fun (and work!! ::nod:: )

Eric,
That looks really nice. I am excited about Canal Street being back in business again. I am new to collecting and have never had one, so I hope to remedy that. You said you made the knives for the pictures, I was wondering why there was no stag pictured?

Larry, the stag knives were added to the order after I did the samples, probably a last minute addition.

A cool idea would be to add a card that came with each knife to authenticate which cutler made each knife - much in the same way some small batch bourbons and scotches are packaged.

In the Red Hill description of the new knives, the Pinch with brown canvas micarta scales includes a picture of the reverse side that shows a second shield: "Red Hill Exclusive".

The descriptions of the other knives do not show a picture of the reverse side.

Does anyone know if all of the "Co op" knives will have that "Red Hill Exclusive" shield on the reverse side?

Also, does anyone know if there is any significant difference to the Red Hill descriptions: "out of stock" and 'sold out" in the various "Co op" knives?

I'm glad I got my order in for a chestnut pinch. It seems they are out of stock (I assume meaning sold out) now also.

I got a UPS notice today letting me know my order from Basham Lumber is on the way. Great - but who the heck is Basham Lumber?? Quick google search shows me it's the parent company of Red Hill Cutlery. Neat! Looks like production is ahead of schedule. When I ordered my Chestnut Pinch it was for September delivery. UPS says I'll have it Tuesday. SWEET!!! ::groove::

Christmas in August!

As mentioned just above, the new Canal Street Co-op Pinches were supposed to be completed in September.

I received mine from Red Hill yesterday.

As shown, the knife came in a Red Hill box, inside a brown pouch, but did include the familiar slip of paper stating its origin.
The knife is not serial numbered and does not have a shield on the reverse side (as I wondered about up-thread.)
A great addition to my small collection of CS knives.
Congratulations to Mr. Gardiner, his cutlers, and Red Hill!

I believe they are going to be Canal Street Tang Stamps
When I talked with Redhill, they stated that they were looking to bring on their own brand, however, Wally made the offer and they went with Canal Street Co-op knives.

Looks like it is going to be the same Tang Stamps that were are all used to seeing, right now!
