    I've heard there's going to be a surprise cover, but I haven't confirmed it with GEC.

    Does anyone have a report of the action on the bone Tidioute 97's?
    They aren't even listed on CK's site.

    That’s the one I’m waiting for, too. I don’t think any of the Northfields are out yet.

    I'm guessing it was interpreted by a mod as advertising for a non-sponsor dealer.

    Ah, I bet you're right. I didn't even think of that. Meant no harm, BF.

    Well I'm sort of glad you did, I've seen those SFOs in the past, now I know where they come from.

    Just received a Beavertail today. Oddly, I kind of prefer the Tidioutes this time around. Minus the lined bolster, it pretty much looks like a typical Northfield. I may go for a stag though.

    While the knife has a decent action, I’m fairly disappointed with the light pull. Something like this should be a snapper IMHO. Seems to be a new GEC standard. I highly doubt that the Northfield’s will have stout pulls which makes me really wonder why they added the nail nick, other than for looks. The knife is easily pinchable.

    Looking forward to seeing those saber grinds regardless!

    It is more like the 43 Oregon Trapper.

    Nevermind on the surprise handle choice. That was bad info.

    I've got it on reserve Darren and I'm hoping I can get over the double nick because otherwise I think I have a place for it.
