This is my favorite Northwoods yet. I had often wished for a Northwoods version of the 47 Viper. This is even better. The rustic Bohncliffe blade and swayback handle are a marvelous combination. The Signal Jack exudes class as well as utility. Fit and finish are excellent. Shield inletting and handle/bolsters/liners transitions are precise. The pull is exactly what I hoped for (about 6+/7). Snaps to half stop with authority and without play. Strong snap as it goes home to fully open. Same in reverse. Came as sharp (maybe sharper) as any of its 93 brethen ... easily push-cutting newspaper stock into fine ribbons and navigating S-cuts with precision. Very well done J. Rouch/Northwoods and GEC!
