I remember in 2006 reading “Canal Street Cutlery is rising like a Phoenix from the ashes of Schrade Cutlery” and was excited to see what was in store for this promising new brand. Sadly in 2015 Canal Street Closed their doors after a tremendous 10 year run of quality low production knives.
Canal Street was a favorite with collectors at Red Hill and we proudly supported them for a majority of their existence. The unanimous favorite pattern with Canal Street was there traditional take on the trapper, names the Moonpie Trapper. With those collectors in mind a new creation is in progress and set to debut soon from our friends at Bear & Son Cutlery in Jacksonville, Alabama.
Bear & Son will soon be releasing a limited run series of “moonpie-esque” trappers appropriately named The HOSS™ Trapper. The calling card of this tenacious 4 1/8” closed folder is the blades that are over .100″ thick and .125″ thick nickel silver bolsters. These attractive knives will have highly polished blades, extra polished handles and back springs and will have traditional bone rivets in the handles. There are a lot of extra steps in these but I predict they will be hard to find soon after their release.
Available in some of the most desired handles including Brown Pick Bone, Genuine India Stag, Abalone shell, and a run in Genuine India Stag featuring Damascus steel blades contrary to the others 440 Stainless steel blades. Each will be individually serialized 1-250 and come packaged in limited edition gift tin. We have obtained the lowest production numbers to be sold here at the shop and trust me these will yet another reason why “nothing beats a Bear”!
THICKER blades, THICKER bolsters, THICKER springs – Saying these are DURABLE is an understatement
