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.
What is the difference between the Michigan Jack and the Broadway jack ? Both are a barehead EO and look to be the same size. The KSF website has some info in Northwoods archives but closed lengths are not given ! Is that a crack across handle or a scar on the tusk ? Do you have a picture of the back side ? kj
