Any word on if these are going to be bareheaded or not yet?
I bought a 92 in Ivory Bone a few years ago.
It's one of my favorite EDC slipjoints.
Nope. It appears they will have end caps.
That is extremely unfortunate.
Either way looks good to me on this pattern...I'd take one of each!
Any reliable guesses as to when they should start arriving at retailers? I'm anxious to get one, myself. The samples I've seen of jigged calico bone look very attractive..
GEC please tell us the color, or lack thereof for the 92 camel bone.
I really want to know the color of that camel bone too!
I’m trying not to speculate, and keep myself neutral.
Most definitely time for its own thread. I am very much looking forward to owning the Northfields. Thanks much for your post.
No, don't. I am trying to convince myself that I have enough knives...but if you insist...………………….
The TSA SFO calico bone knife pre-orders are all spoken for. You will have to buy one on Evil-bay.
I have a pre-order on the #92 Northfield Camel bone knife. I wish it came in single spear blade - dark blue camel bone - no bolster -- I only ordered one #92 knife. If they came in single blade , I would of ordered every one.
The one place I contacted would not take pre-orders....
as much as I would like to have one of these, I'm not going to pay middleman markup for one. Too many other really nice knives out there to get into a buying (scalping?) frenzy.
Has GEC ever put the Hotdog on a knife with jigged bone covers?
The older 36’s come to mind.
You are correct! A quick google search of the 36 revealed pics of jigged bone with a hot dog shield.
It looked fine to me. I wasn’t going to miss out on a calico jigged bone 92 just because of the hot dog shield. Is it my favorite? No. But it’s not a deal breaker for me on the right knife.
Yeah, the only shield that I think can ruin a knife is the Tidioute shield... and even then, it can work.
Funny thing... That's my favorite shield.
I'd take the TIDIOUTE and UN-X-LD shields on every knife.
Anything but the hotdog please! I just know they are going to hotdog the micarta
FWIW, I really like those shields as well.
I dislike the “hot dog,” and whenever I see a bar shield I think, “what’s the point?”
