Madison Barlow et al Release

The Northwoods Knife brand name originated in Gladstone, Michigan when a man named Dave Shirley adopted it as his knife company's name in 2004. Dave was well known for collaborating with popular knife companies to have knives made to his specifications for resale well before 2004 & beyond. KnivesShipFree bought Northwoods from Dave & has continued to team up with respected makers to produce knives marked with the Northwoods brand name.

Madison Barlow et al Release

Postby m0nk » Fri Jan 18, 2019 12:16 am

I was working and totally missed out on the NW Madison Barlow release today. Did anybody here score one? More than one? How long did it take for them to sell out? And my biggest curiosity is, what knives were in the small variety "straggler" batch? I wasn't planning on getting a Madison Barlow, but I did want to take a gander at the stragglers and see if anything caught my eye. Oh well, work has a way of keeping us from the things we really want to do, like buy expensive knives we don't need. Irony is, without work we wouldn't be able to afford any nice new knives at all...

Monk it took 7 or 8 minutes just for KSF site to load up for me and from what I saw it was all gone in about 20 minutes stragglers included .

The website darn near crashed. I was on, the minute they were listed. It was at an agonizing speed. I was able to get one in Appaloosa bone, it was 139.95. I think there was something else at 129.95? Many weren't able to get anything...because of the website pretty much crashing, on them.

Lee, I saw several giraffe bone, Kudu bone, stag and several Micarta’s in the stragglers. I can’t remember all the patterns but there was a very nice variety of blades. The Micarta Wharncliffe blades sold the slowest, so of course that was all I could score. I had 3 different giraffe bones in the cart at 3 different times and every time it took me to paypal and back it said it was no longer available. I ended up w/ a Fayette Jack in black Micarta and an Appaloosa bone in the Madison Barlows.
It was very frustrating and a shame that they don’t have this ironed out. In the business I am in this doesn’t happen, we never have system overload that does this. There is a way for them to improve this, but it would cost money. Until they spend the money we are all stuck w/ this.

There were some on eBay in a very short time, using stock photos.
Asking prices $259-$289. Crazy.

I have 'watched' a few Madison Barlow auctions. Selling prices are not that high. For example one with the Natural Micarta just sold for $141. After ebay & PP fees the flipper will break even, no profit for all the work involved. This is good.

I've won 2 auctions for natural micarta Barlow's below 140, the 1st auction the seller backed out claiming damaged product when the price wasn't in his favor and just received one that I won for 138.50 plus $7 for shipping which is not much above what they cost when released.
