    Do you know of any production or custom one-blade canoes? They seem to be rare things.

    No sir I don't. But, like you say, I'm betting someone will offer up one. Nice custom BTW. It does look like a canoe barlow.

    That's a VERY distinctive canoe, IMHO, for a number of reasons!! :cool::cool::thumbsup::thumbsup:
    As you pointed out, a single-blade canoe is quite rare, and a barehead canoe with only one bolster is even more rare, in my experience! The back-lock and the gorgeous ram horn covers are additional features not seen often on canoes!

    Thanks for showing us that champ of a canoe! :thumbsup::):cool:

    That's a blue ribbon pair of canoes, Dwight; exquisite!! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup::cool:

    @TLARbb in post 32 of this thread mentions his barehead 1-blade Mutz custom canoe, but the photo is lost to Fotobucket.

    But in post #87 @popedandy posts a pic of his 1-blade barehead Mutz:

    If you searched this thread (or other canoe threads) for "single blade", you may find more (I haven't tried it yet). ;)

    Even though I've already posted it in 2 other threads, this one belongs here as well. My first Case canoe. I'm pretty sure the first one I seen with the canoe etch was one posted by Gary @5K Qs . I thought that was the neatest thing, a canoe on a canoe lol

    That's a consummate canoe right there, David! :thumbsup::cool::cool::thumbsup:

    (I think if you look VERY closely, you'll see that the guy in the canoe on the canoe knife carries a canoe knife on which is etched a canoe carrying a guy carrying a canoe knife on which is etched a canoe ... :D:D)

    I have that Old Timer, and it's my only Canoe. I'm super jealous of your collection, and I'm planning on adding a Case model to replace the Old Timer as my everyday knife as soon as I find the model that "speaks to me" as I try to do with traditional folders

    Commemorative for Orgill Hardware of Memphis, Tn. The scrim and engraving are real, not stamped. A little chip that came with the cased set is also of organic origin. Orgill engraved001.jpg Orgill engraved002.jpg Orgill engraved004.jpg Orgill engraved005.jpg

    Thanks for the jealousy, I guess! ;):thumbsup::thumbsup: Does your Old Timer canoe have a shield (the standard Old Timer one, I suppose)? Strange thing about mine is that it arrived shieldless! :confused: I hope you can hear a Case canoe speaking to you real soon, David! :cool::thumbsup::cool: Oh, and welcome to The Porch! :)

    Man, that is a fancy, distinctive canoe, for sure!! :thumbsup::cool::cool::thumbsup:

    Mine does have the shield, that is strange :eek:. And yes Sir I can hear it! It sounds like it's a white or jigged bone with the canoe engraved on the blade :D

    Yeah, I found that an amber jigged bone Case canoe speaks very persuasively! ;)

    That is a beautiful knife! Strange that I just noticed this, but does the larger blade stick up more on that Case than the Old Timer when it's closed?

    I don't have a comparison photo, but I just pulled out both knives to check. The Case canoe main blade is a bit longer than that of the Old Timer (by less than 1/8"), and because the shape of the Old Timer spine drops to its point a bit "faster" than does the spine of the Case knife, I think that you're correct. The "hump" on the Case spearpoint does stick up a little higher than the OT "hump" near the tip of the blade.
    I hope that's useful info.

    Thank you! That's exactly what I was asking. I wasn't sure if it was my eyes or actually a difference

    That is awesome on so many levels. I live in Memphis and down the street from Billy Orgill, a local politician and business man. Billy is from the family whose business in commemorated in your knife.
