Dating Northwoods Fremont

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 may have missed the forum that gives me this info if so just point me to the right place . Just picked up a couple of Northwood Fremonts one a Calico Bone and the other is Burnt Stag #1 neither one came with coin and I'm not sure if they were supposed to? My Question is how do you date them? I haven't keep up with them. ::dang:: Is there a source to find out the # made . Thanks for the info

Nice knives. For records you need to consult the GEC production totals. With 98% certainty, these knives were produced in 2013, first appearance of the Fremont. 61 in smooth bone and 63 in burnt stag produced.
