Post your Favorite Northwoods Knife

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.

Man all these Northwoods knives really get me wanting. ::tu::
All posted here are very nice but my favorites would probably be K.J's yellow handles Indian River and K.J's mammoth ivory Presidential (or) any one of the Bear Lakes. Then again there are the Zulu's, Willamette Whittlers and all the others. :D If there was unlimited availability and I had an unlimited budget I think I'd want them all.

After seeing the way this thread has gone, I think it appropriate to post my second most favorite Northwoods. The one was gifted to me by Greg (gsmith7158). These Northwoods Willamette Whittlers are soooo classy. Thank you Greg.

This thread says favorite knife, so singular, just one knife. Well i tried and each time i selected one, another one would suddenly look 'better'. So sorry, i gave up on just one.
These 3 Northwoods are pretty nice.

Thank you Greg. This Presidential is another strong favorite, handles & pattern: 4 1/4", one spring, 2 blades, powerful knife but slender. Must love this one.

I was wondering where that knife went ! It is a beauty. Wonder why i sold it ? At least it has a very appreciative new owner.
Thanks for showing it.
