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.

I would hope they used a different tang stamp so we could easily differentiate between the factory made Canal Street Cutlery Co. knives and the knives produced by the new co-op.

My knife was waiting for me at the front door today - another Chestnut Pinch to add to the thread (and Dan, you have excellent taste in cutlery sir!)

The stamp on the co-op knife that was shown by jxr1197 looks identical to the stamp used prior to the co-op era.

Not the best picture, but the tang stamp on the chestnut pinch shows

Canal Street
Cutlery Co.
USA
(3 lines, slightly curved)

same as my 2013 merlot linen Pinch from the older CSC.

Also note, the Co-op blade is 154 CM while the CSC pinches were D2 (at least my few are).

My American chestnut pinch arrived today. I supposedly had ordered the last one available according to the sales staff at Red Hill.
Since Dan & Jason have already posted photos no need for me duplicate their efforts. The tang stamp is the original Canal Street Cutlery factory stamp with Canal Street / Cutlery Co. in a double arch over a the straight lined USA. The knife itself is purely Canal Street Cutlery. Only the little info sheet designates it as a co-op knife & of course, the Red Hill Cutlery box reveals their association in this partnership. I'm so glad to be fortunate enough to obtain a "first run" knife of the Wally's new CSC co-op venture! ::ds:: May it be the first of many... ::tu::

Does anyone know how many of the pinch lockbacks with the chestnut handles were made?
I have read that the batch runs where to be less than 100 pieces...
and I agree with bestgear.... it would be nice to know who the cutler is for the knife I obtained.

Can't help you with who the cutler is, but there were less than 10 made according to the website. These first ones are very small batches.

First post Guys ::tu:: :) Nice to meet ya !
I called Josh at Red Hills yesterday and he told me the stag boys knife was for a show they we're having in a couple weeks ,but they where put up on the web site just to test the water !
Never thinking they would go as fast as they did. Well We knew better ! I have one of those coming and a pinch in N.M. He was going to ship them together, I told him cool but it's a test of my OCD (I want it! I want it now ! ) He also said to keep on the lookout for more ! but I don't think we'll see big runs from CSC co-op , Josh said Wally want to keep the runs small, so We'll see. ::shrug::

Thanks for sharing, the WB bone is very attractive. Waiting on a stag one, looking forward to seeing the fit and finish.
