Order Details

Our seconds are cosmetically imperfect knives that are fully functional and carry our Customer Satisfaction Guarantee. Each knife is marked with a notch on the lower edge of the ricasso.

Because it was such a handy tool during the Great Depression, a knife of this design was carried by the men who traveled around the country looking for a way to make a living. They were called hobos and thus this style knife became known as a Hobo Knife. Since that time, the name has been trademarked by W.R. Case and Sons. When Canal Street Cutlery made our first version, we called it a Hobo Knife but had to change the name because Case had the trademark. We renamed ours Boxcar Jack because the primary mode of transportation for the hobos was freight trains.

Once Canal Street Cutlery disappeared, we could find no one in the U.S.A. who could manufacture this knife. It is not easy to get the two parts to fit together well. After a lot of searching and back and forth with prototypes, we found a factory in China who could produce the two parts and fit them together well enough to meet our requirements. The blade steel for this new version is 8Cr13MoV at 57-59 Rc. with a satin finish. The knife blade measures 3-1⁄4" and the fork 3". The bolsters, liners and shield are stainless steel. The set is available in three handle materials - two in traditional bone, and one in modern and very durable G-10 which should last more than a lifetime. Measures 3-3⁄4" closed and weighs about 3.7 oz. depending on the handle material. Made in China.
