Thanks! Makes it tough in the morning figuring out which one I'm going to pocket. You made a great choice with that Madison. GEC did a fine job on them.
Northwoods… You know, I set out a bit less than a year ago looking for "the one" traditional folder that would fill that gap. After a lot of web research, like many others, I ran into the Indian River Jack, which I learned only came from Knives Ship Free, and by the way, I'd just missed the latest "printing." Well, . What's a modest collector to do to tide him over? Well, I'd just found an entire line of gorgeous slippies! I went big, of course! Willamette Whittler in Mammoth Ivory… "just one," I told myself. Big mistake. Getting that one made it way too easy to rationalize denying, then folding like a limp slipjoint in the face of every release since.
I got my current IRJ from a gracious forum member, simply because I wanted to make sure I had one and it was available. Not my first choice in scales, it's not perfectly executed, and it's not in S35VN like the next run is supposed to be. (S35VN!!!!!) So, even though my wife finally said "no more knives" after this Madison came in, I'm secretly waiting for the next IRJ run scheming and checking the KSF website like a fanatic waiting on a secret message telling me to execute my devious designs.
But now the GEC website says they're working on a #47 for Derrick Bohn… Something called a "Viper" and another called a "Harvester." (A wharncliffe and a hawk bill respectively.) This before the imminent release of the next IRJ. Maybe I can resist that one? We shall see.
Once I have that IRJ? Who knows? I'm not a noted fan of flippers, but there's a Zero Tolerance that's caught my eye… that 0808 has some very dazzling lines...
(Edited for proper GEC pattern #47)
I'm also waiting for the IRJ S35VN. Told myself I was going to keep my powder dry until then but then I started looking at the CRK Mnandi (pictured above) and couldn't resist buying the snakewood version around Christmas. Yeah, they're pricey but Lordy, what a beautiful cutting tool! I may have found my grail. I'll still grab an IRJ if I can. You've got to be quick since they sell out almost as soon as they hit the shelves.
The Mnandi is still on my grail list. I was lucky enough to snag one of the 2014 Indian River Jacks, but certainly wouldn't mind having another. Those GEC #47 Vipers tend to go pretty quickly, too--I completely missed out on the Osage Orange version during an earlier production run. Hard to line up the wallet with all these expensive moving targets.
Municipal_Jedi, I am liking this thing for daily carry! Small, solid build, but performs like a big knife. Love it!
Dude, you need to get those coins in protective sleeves. You have a couple of nice Morgan's there. The 1921's aren't worth that much, but they'd still benefit from a little protection.
A Northwoods Viper? very nice!
Yeah, I splurged on a Sebenza in the middle of all this too...
Well, that's what GEC has it listed as in their production schedule anyway. GEC had what turned out to be the Michigan Jack listed as an Easy Open Jack. Bohn's order will be pattern based with Northwoods trappings.
Still kinda sharp...
Paying homage to FL Woods Bum
Tonight at home...finally.
Tom Krein Ultimate Caper, and Silver Worry Stone.
That is absolutely lovely.
Also, forged with a high percentage of unobtainium, I see.
Gifted that exact same knife to a former foreman of mine being deployed to Iraq as a reserve Marine about 12 years ago. He did he never had to use it for combative purposes, but it caused him a bit of trouble on the plane ride home apparently. What a great covert design. More egg shaped handles please!!!
