Northwoods Big Bay

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 hope those here who did win a B.B.N. will post a picture here. Did anyone get a really nice mammoth or giraffe bone ?

Roland, I only got to look at it for a second but I'm pretty sure I got a very nice brownish-gray giraffe bone. It should be here on Saturday and I will definitely post it. ::tu::

Ok this came in the mail today, the much ballyhooed Big Bay. Fit and finish, action perfect. even came with patina on the non ground surfaces which i'll probably clean off. Brownish-Gray Giraffe bone

Thanks Rick! I find it very interesting how that giraffe bone takes dyes differently. It's amazing in the sun light.

btw, like Greg I wasn't completely sure which knife I'd bought until I got it in hand.

Hey you lucky guys: thanks for showing these B.B.'s
3 3/4", right ?
Giraffe bone seems to be able to take variable amounts of any dye and every piece is a little different. Good stuff !
Does camel bone do the same thing ?

I'm afraid that I have become a hopeless Northwoods junkie. Here's a Big Bay in mammoth that I just scored.

Well, at least you have complete control of your impulses for other brands. ::poke::

Beautiful example! I’m looking forward to pictures that shows off a better view of the mammoth.
