    My pictures don't do the Cocobolo wood justice. I can try to take more if you'd like but I'm not much of a photographer. The #56 & 57 are darker but the other three Cocobolos are a very nice red/brown color. ALL blades are 1095 Carbon Steel. I believe all blades are centered as well.


    SOLD---> #73 Northfield Scout: Cocobolo handles. Original owner, brand new and un-used. With tube and certificate of authenticity (#14 of 25). Both blades are darn near impossible to open. I see people often use a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being nail breaker. Well these are probably 9.5 then. GEC will fix this for free (other than your cost to ship back to them) I paid $106... Price- $70 *Ill take pictures if someone is interested*


    SOLD---> #26 Northfield Sleeveboard: Cocobolo handles...some of the best looking Cocobolo I've seen. Second owner but it's brand-new and un-used. Includes tube. Main blade is difficult to open but the secondary is fine. GEC will fix this for free (other than your cost to ship back to them) Price- $70

    SOLD---> #66 Northfield Calf Roper: Cocobolo handles...great color/grain. Original owner, new and un-used. Serialized #9 of 25. All three blades open smooth. Includes tube & certificate of authenticity. Price- $90

    [​IMG]


    SOLD---> #72 Tidioute Lockback Hunter: Jigged Brazilian Cherry handles. Original owner, new and un-used. Serialized #3 of 25. Opens smooth but the lock is sticky/hard to disengage. I'm not sure if this is something that will ease with time/oil, or if it would need a spa treatment from GEC. Includes tube & certificate of authenticity. Price- $65

    [​IMG]

    SOLD---> #57 Northfield Geppetto Whittler: Cocobolo handles...a bit dark. Original owner, new and un-used. Serialized #10 of 25. All three blades open smooth. Includes tube & certificate of authenticity. Price- $95

    [​IMG]



    WITHDRAWN---> #48 Northfield Dogleg Jack: Cocobolo handles...great color/grain. Second owner but as far as I know its new/un-used. Serialized #11 of 25. Both blades open smooth and each have half-stops. Includes tube & certificate of authenticity. Price- $70

    [​IMG]


    WITHDRAWN---> #56 Northfield Weaver Jack: Cocobolo handles...a bit dark. Original owner, new and un-used. Serialized #14 of 25. All three blades open smooth. Includes tube & certificate of authenticity. Price- $95

    I'll take the #72 Beaver Tail lockback. I'm guessing the blade steel is 1095, correct?

    I'll also point out that I'll combine shipping. Take $5 off for every for every multiple. ex: 2 knives ($5 off) 3 knives ($10 off)

    Lets get these sold.

    If someone were to buy the remaining five knives at $420, I'll throw in a Northfield #73 Scout in Cocobolo Serialized for $15. So you'd get the 6 knives for $435 paypal'd/shipped.

    The only caveat is that the Scout is currently in the mail on its way to me from KnivesShipFree. Lists for $106.17 on their site.

    Seen here:

    Still not convinced? In addition to the deal above, I'll throw in another #73 Scout Cocobolo, this time Tidioute. New, un-used and in tube. Small spot on spey blade. Half-stops. This for an extra $40

    So 7 Cocobolo GECs (all un-used) for $475 shipped/paypal'd

    Pictures of the Tidioute Scout can be seen here as "Two Blade Trapper": http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/s...inless-26-Watchpocket-Sunfish-2-blade-Trapper

    Not much interest so I am withdrawing/closing. If you want the 7 for $475 deal, it's good till evening on 6/19/12 but I'm no longer selling individually.

    Up for one more look. Last chance before I mail the Scout and Sleeveboard back to GEC.

    Take all three for $125 shipped ConUS. Could be a good investment on your part as you could flip-them after repair.

    F.Y.I. I emailed GEC explaining the issues and they said they'd fix at no charge. You basically just pay to ship the knives to them. Here is the copy/paste from the email.

    You can send them back to us and we can adjust them for you. Send them to:

    Great Eastern Cutlery
    701 E. Spring Street, Unit 10
    Titusville, PA 16354
    Attn: Chris

    Please include a note reminding me of the problems along with your name, address and phone number. There is no cost to you for this.
