Dave Shirley Northwoods

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.

I only have 1 Shirley era Northwoods ... a "mini moose" pen knife. One of my fave's - it's 3-1/4" closed with a wharncliffe - super hard snap for a wee knife --->

Just noticed you posted my knife Lansky. Cool piece for sure. Nice to know where it has been. Must have been another unknown turn on the road of it's life. Good to know a bit more of the chain of custody. :mrgreen: :lol: ::super_happy:: ::tu::

interesting - I picked it up at the Easton, PA knife show & it has since made its way 4000 miles or so west to Hawaii. That knife has quite a travel record ...

Do you recall the year? I was curious when these were made? Thanks for the info.
