The Northwoods Presidential is one of the very few Northwoods knives that has had great appeal to me. I think they were produced before my time here though. Wonderful looking knives and they often elicit adoration from me whenever I see them posted here.
It’s always to good to find out sooner then laterThat's quite interesting as I just checked mine and all 3 blades are flush! Who woulda thunk; thanks for the tip!
Ha, ha, thanks Gary; sometimes I feel that old though the latter may be a more accurate description!!!Another pristine and pleasing pair, JJ! Are you about 100 years old and bought most of your knives when they first came out, or are you just patient, picky, and persistent looking for minty knives on the secondary market??
Extremely attractive GEC couple you have Ron; very cool!Y’all have a great day!
Amazing pair of totes Jack; your Ulster has a very interesting punch that looks like an old Robeson design, awesome!!!Carrying these two today
Thank you Harvey!!! The shot of your lambfoot is a real 3D stunner; another marvelous sight!Thank you JJ. Your two knives are as beautiful as the day they originally went on sale. Impressive.
Quite a lovely photograph of you wonderful Laguiole En Aubrac!!!This one
Almost impossible to beat the trusty old BSA scout knife; quite possibly my favorite pattern! Hang tough out there Bruce!!!
Another good day to pocket a stainless pocketknife, this time an old Official BSA by Ulster. OH
Classic combo of maple covers with the maple leaf; quite a gorgeous representative of an outstanding pattern!Digging this maple 29 today
Very cool butter and molasses covers on you wonderful Shapleigh DE, Jeff; can't beat the old traditional beauties!I just realized I posted this in the wrong thread earlier today, but it's been in my pocket since about 9 this morning.
Very true, I've only seen that on a couple of vintage knives! I've got a "General Issue" in the Osage wood and am very impressed on all fronts; it also seems to have an incredible grind!It’s always to good to find out sooner then later
Don’t know why but I noticed it within minutes of handling my first one. But have looked for it as my radar was on for my next arrivals
You just might have the only ones made by GEC with all 3 blades flush at the half stop who woulda thunk Personally never seen that before even on customs.
Do you have a SFO or ?
I love my Osage wood although it has the weakest walk and talk on the main blade out of all my 29’s . Not a deal breaker but probably about a 4 pull and light on the close. From what I’ve seen most of the early releases being the Osage wood were pretty much the weakest on the walk and talk . But with that being said I bet since all 3 blades on yours are flush at the half stop Gec didn’t stop there and I’m guessing yours is about a 6 and a snappy one at thatVery true, I've only seen that on a couple of vintage knives! I've got a "General Issue" in the Osage wood and am very impressed on all fronts; it also seems to have an incredible grind!
Gec knocked these 29’s out of the park !The main is a bit lighter than the secondary blades; about a 5 main and 6's on the other two. Very happy all round!
I agree, the maple covers with the maple leaf is an awesome combination; they definitely hit a home run!Gec knocked these 29’s out of the park !
Each run seemed to get better and better in the walk and talk area on the main blade . Fit and finish is remarkable on all of mine but I think my Maple leaf SFO is the best all around although it’s my favorite so I might be a little bias lol .
For Friday my totes are a couple with black covers; a Remington jack from the early 1930s and a NYKCo 75th BSA anniversary (1985) scout by Schrade.
