Canal Street Cutlery took great pride in developing relationships with the knife craftsmen in our home town of Ellenville, in Wawarsing, NY. Wawarsing has been in the forefront of the knife making business since the late 1840's and is home to families with generations of cutlers. Canal Street Cultery was originally founded to manufacture pocket and hunting knives in this classical tradition using the old world cutlery skills of best craftsmen in our community. The knifes below were all handcrafted right next door to us, and have received high critical acclaim around the world. They are extremely well-made and have many qualities that are hard to find in this day and age. They are revered by pocketknife traditionalists, as well as collectors who value their long range value. In our experience with collectibles quality wins the long range game, and these knives fit all the criteria of increasing in value for posterity. Canal Street Cutlery, in business from 2004 to 2015, is now closed, and all of their traditional knives are out of production limited edition collectibles.

This fabulous knife is an American Classic through and through. It's handle was made with preserved American Wormy Chestnut wood handles from a 100 year old tobacco barn in Hopkinsville, KY. A thick, compact spear blade, and two small sharp finishing blades, complement the sturdy, well engineered, spit back-springs, and oversized Canoe bolsters that support a full range of blade motion. You'll think of grandpa when you open and use this blade. It's a very, very special rare pocketknife.

A comfortably finished, compact canoe pocketknife with that old-fashioned feel and lots of punch. One of 25 made and extremely rare premiere split backspring construction.
