    Nope. Use it. You deserve it :)

    I have one, a Scagel repro with stag. I even had the blade proffessionaly reground Scandi style to make it a better slicer. Got it real goobered up once and refinished it with sandpaper.

    If any GEC 1095 blade sits w/o use it still may get rust or a pit. That's just the way it can be with 1095. Some believe the best way to protect 1095 is to give it a patina obtained by use ;)

    Anybody have any clues or guesses about when the next Northwoods release might happen?

    It would be cool if they did another run of the Norfolk. They had GEC build the tooling for them, and only did the two runs (regular and whittler). Would be nice if the next one was FFG instead of the rustic saber grinds.

    Anyone have an idea when the next run would be? I missed the Heritage Jack (not for lack of trying, was just too slow on the trigger... er, mouse). Thanks all.

    Northwoods Norfolk Whittler with ebony handles. These were built on the #31 frame for the Northwoods brand by GEC. That frame is exclusive to Northwoods, but hasn’t been used since 2014. This one is a 3.25 inch split-back whittler. I’d love to see another run based on this frame.

    A boring day at work is a little better when you have a beautiful knife to enjoy.

    Traded into a 2015 Willamette Whittler in ivory, GEC does not list the totals for Ivory so no idea how many made. Love the 38 frame.
