The collection is growing

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.

Greg, If my math is right you are adding 1 Northwoods every 2 days (8 knives in 17 days) so this time next year you should have about 210 Northwoods in your collection. Is it time for an intervention? :)

31 is even more impressive than 17 !
Northwoods knives are not cheap especially those with mammoth or stag handles. However i think they are a safe bet to maintain or increase in value.
The last few Northwoods have been rather plain patterns with little to distinguish them from a regular run GEC. I doubt these will be high on the Northwoods collector list. It is the earlier GEC made Northwoods like the Conductor #33 whittler or the #54 Presidential, and others that i think will continue to be very collectible.

And just think Greg, if you hadn't given me that Willamette Whittler, it would be 32. ::woot:: Sorry pal. I ain't playing that Indian giver game. :lol: :lol:

What a beauty. ::nod:: ::super_happy:: Thank you.
