Well we've been working furiously with our web designer Colin to publish the new updated droppointhunter.com website and it's nearly completed. We've been testing out the shopping cart to make sure it works seamlessly. There have been a few bumps and snags along the way but progress is being made and we expect to launch this site sometime in October.

We received some wonderful entries in our Rare Popcorn Bone Pocketknife Contest. The criteria we asked the contestants to enter with was passion for Canal Street Knives. There were quite a few good entries, and it was tough to choose a winner, but we are proud to announce that the finalist of the contest is Cherrie and Rich Hanson. Thanks to all our entrant's for their efforts. We are posting all of the entries for your enjoyment:

Top 10 Reasons I Adore Canal Street Knives
We are fortunate to have a very intimate relationship with the makers of Canal Street Cutlery, and see a side of their knives that very few others can. We sit on what Wally Gardiner mockingly calls their Board of Directors, and here they share their design process with gusto, and the history and rationales for these designs. We’ve watched every single pocketknife and hunting knife in their line go through at least one design change. It’s a fascinating exercise where they take the knife and deconstruct and reconstruct its components to improve and upgrade it.
We had an email from a customer today that reminds us that we haven't posted on our blog that are in the process of redesigning our website. We have been working with a couple of consultants to re-think what we are doing. We've already made some changes already, but by early next year there will be more new features popping up, including a new expanded shopping cart and as well as a coupon system for our insiders. If you happen to see something odd - or have a suggestion - please let us know.
Friends and customers. We have a small glitch we are in the process of repairing with our email contact program. If you are having a problem with our system while it is under repair - we request that you call us for assistance or any questions at 845-524-4508. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Today we have completed a number of site changes to Droppointhunter.com. The main menu strip is now organized by knife type and the content at the top of the menu gives you the basic specifications for the Canal Street Knife type and then lists the different handle styles available. Over the next few weeks we will probably revise all of the individual knife descriptions instead of repeating all the specifications from knife to knife. The rest of our content is now included under Points of Interest on the right side of the page and includes our rare collectibles and knife contest pages.
We have created a new page for the summer heat my friends. it's time to move some knives out of the knife room to make room for more knives. Visit our newest specials page to see a list of special offers available for a short time only.
