0300 hrs and in place of sleep i have been looking at my Northwoods knives. The Norfolk & Norfolk Whittler, The Presidential, the Eskie Zulu, all magnificent knives.
In sharp contrast are the recent releases like the Delta Jack, Little Bay & others are so 'ordinary'. There is nothing special about them other than being a strong well made knife just like regular run GEC's.
Northwoods as a high end knife has crashed and will soon 'burn' unless Derrick 'pulls up his socks' and gets back to interesting patterns and top quality handles. No more Micarta especially the ugly 'Burlap Micarta'.
I am lucky to have bought Derrick's early Northwoods because they are special knives.

1) what do you think the next Northwoods knife will be ?
2)What pattern would you like Northwoods to make ?
I don't have any clue as the answer for # 1. But for question 2 i would like to see a clip blade patterned after the Remington 6816 LB Whittler. I have borrowed this picture, a bit blurry but can see the profile i am wanting to see Northwoods use.
Note, not looking for a LB whittler, just this blade in whatever frame they think suitable. That said, a Lock Back Whittler would be outstanding.
