    After an excruciating weekend away, I finally got my hands on these two. Both are finished very nicely, though the pins could be smoother. Perfectly centered, and flush open and closed. Satisfyingly snappy action. What a great cap off to this fantastic 93 run.

    Both nice, but the lighter one looks fantastic to me.

    The lighter one is definitely my favorite.

    Anyone know if Northwoods is planning to do something with the 92 pattern? I don't think they've done one in that pattern yet. . .

    Nothing was announced as far as I know so it would only be speculation at this point.

    Nice jigging, and that green color is attractive. I wish it had been a clip or spear point though.

    That green looks pretty good, curious to see the other cover options but the green already has my attention

    Aha. There it is. Green looks pretty good. I'll definitely try for something more exotic if it's available. I've just had my first experiences on the 92 frame, and a single blade would be great. I wasn't around for the talons.

    I have a talon that was an sfo .. did not like the jigging. It’s with someone to get vintage paper butterscotch handles... so excited.

    I'm hoping to get in, yes a one blade, green and jig looks real good, the rustic look is nice but I wish they would give a choice to have it or not

    That green looks great! I usually go for micarta but that has me considering something else.

    Yes! Like the look of that and having a different blade, not usually a fan of N.woods stuff much but that's a fine example, too bad it will vanish before I can even think about it in Europe;) Are they all steel or are the liners brass? At least with Greenbone then verdigris won't be a problem :eek::D:D

    To my mind a clip point would have been a better choice of blade shape.... just something different than the Signal Jack and the forum knife.

    Looks to me like all steel. I’m hoping for a northwoods 86 with a clip point though, I’d be in on that for sure. I think I’ll sit these ones out, I do like that green bone.
