Canal Street 1st Year Set

Postby philco » Fri Jan 11, 2019 3:14 am

This Canal Street 1st Year set just sold on ebay. I've got a similar set, but in my set both knives bear the 1st Year shield. In this set the whittler has such a shield but the congress knife has no shield at all. Can anyone shed any light on this discrepancy ? All the other similar sets I've seen had the 1st Year shield on both knives. I've also got several Canal Street congress knives and all of them have a Canal Street shield (other than the one in the set).

On my set, looking at the congress from the mark side, the small clip blade is on the right side. The picture you posted shows the small clip on the left side so I suspect there is no shield showing because it's the pile side in the picture. ::shrug::

Phil, I think the congress is upside down. The mark side should have the small clip blade on the right, meaning that in the photo the shields are on the bottom.

Eric I did not post all the photos from that listing but it appeared to me that there was no shield on either side of the congress knife, but perhaps you and Doug are right.

Phil, check it out, every photo he shows has the knife backwards, not sure how he didn't realize it, unless he was hiding something. Went for a good price, I hope it was all legit.

Looks like Doug and I were thinking alike at exactly the same time lol!

Here's the set I had, in the right configuration:

Eric, I would say great minds think alike however in my case, it would be more accurate to say a confused mind.
I checked the photos in the post as well and noticed the same. As for the set, I can't help but wonder at the poor centering of the 2 knives. I had wondered if it was just my set but they all seem to be the same...with the congress too far to the right. By the way, I removed the red liner in mine so as to make new holes for the pegs and found another liner beneath it in a royal blue.
