Post your Favorite Northwoods Knife

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.

If you're only going to have one that sure is a nice one to have.

The Presidential & the Lincoln Jack, both with mammoth & the Wharncliffe Whittler with ivory. It is knives like these that i would like to see in future Northwoods.

H'mmm, no comments. I guess they are just not pretty enuf.
I will try again. Here is the "Willamette Whittler" which is not a whittler at all. It is a Double End Serpentine Jack, but that is kind of a mouthful.

They are all very beautiful Roland! We are all drooling over them and kicking ourselves in the rear for not jumping in to Northwoods knives early on. ::drool:: ::dang::

Yes the Norfolk is a graceful old British pattern. It is admirable of GEC to take on this more complex pattern.
Here is the Esky Zulu. "Zulu" is the name Schrade Cut Co gave to this blade profile that is a bit willow leaf like. This too is a very nice knife.

Or perhaps there are no words that could adequately express the sensations of awe and wonder from gazing upon such exquisite beauty.

Thanks QT. I was just having fun. Sometimes i see a knife posted weeks prior because i had not visited that forum for weeks. There are lots of 'places' to go to here at AAPK, one cannot visit every forum every day.
Here are 2 more, both Broadway Jacks, one is an E.O. and the other a Regular Jack.
