    The micarta is my favorite out of the bunch. Simple and classy.

    I know, right. Add on the fact that it's bullet proof, not going to worry about throwing this one in my pocket.

    It’ll be my first Indian River, but I did score a Signal Jack in red linen so this one will have a cover-brother.

    Anyone tag an "S" red linen? If so, when you get it, tell us if you can notice anything that would designate it an "S."

    I think today of all days mentioning war in the same breath as collecting pocket knives may be rather inappropriate and insensitive.

    The only Northwoods I own is the square-back Muskrat; their take on the Hawbaker Muskrat. This is a well made knife from the Queen era of Northwoods. I bought it to have a nice looking faux Tortoise shell and because I wanted a Hawbaker, but not at the Case Hawbaker prices. OH

    Bruce, the color on those handles are real nice :thumbsup: I'm not a big fan of acrylic handles but I do own a GEC 85 with coffehouse acrylic and I love the color, your Muskrat is definitely a keeper.

    Oh my, that made my pants get a little shorter. That clip/sheepsfoot combo with the spade shield is just a stunning combo. Well done.

    With the new IRJ inbound, I decided to go rooting around in the knife drawer to look at some relatives. I've had a few of the GEC Northwoods in the past (with the last being the Esky Zulu in 2016), but have moved them along and only have Queen made examples left.

    The remaining, left to right - Everyday Barlow, Indian River Jack (2015), Gunstock (all were seconds in this run, mine had a shallow nail nick which I butchered with a dremel, although it's much easier to open now :oops:), and Sowbelly

    They don't seem to get a lot of carry time, but that Sowbelly is probably my favorite of the bunch, with the IRJ coming in second.

    Very nice, Mike! We don't see the Queen made Northwoods nearly enough. I really like that Sowbelly.

    Does anyone think there’s another drop coming? Jay made a post a few weeks back, I forget if it was a picture or video, that was of some stragglers that weren’t put up with the Indian river jack.

    I feel like I'm an hour late and a dollar short here since I just started buying slippys. I have a Case sowbelly (one blade) that I carry every day, a Schatt & Morgan Swaybelly Trapper (just in from Collector Knives) and a couple other trappers (Uncle Henrys and such) but looking at the pics you guys posted.....you're making a grown man cry! I'm heading off to sigh up for notifications now! And BTW, that Indian River Jack has me in tears!
