    The D2 was a great steel and when it gets a good convex, it is amazing.

    I'll have to pick up a Queen slip-joint in D2. I see that KSF carries them. I have a belt sander/sharpener to do the convex edges on it myself. (That's also packed in storage at the moment, though. I wonder if Bark River still offers that service.)

    Just saw this thread, I love my Northwoods, the Fruitport is a truly great knife! I will have to take a picture of my Northwoods family one of these days, there is a lot of ivory in that there drawer.

    Hey Derek! What are the chances of the Dogwood being run again under the Northwoods name?

    Who markets under the Scagel trademark now? Who makes the knives?

    I sold the mark to Mike Stewart and a friend of his. They are making fixed blades right now. We will still carry the brand, I just don't have anything to do with designing them any more.

    I would say not. I have suggested to the new owners that they should run the Dogwood again. It is, hands down, my favorite Scagel folder we made. It was a nightmare because Queen completely messed it up the first time and they all had to be re-done, but when they were, they were good.

    We worked off a picture of an old Scagel. Very few changes.

    My sweet stag Northwoods that I admire regularly. The fit and finish on this model is simply great. I like everything about this knife.

    I just bought one of those. I can't wait to get it.

    It was made by GEC and has s60v steel. I think it was the only time GEC used a super steel. :)

    I only have one so far, but love it. Have a Michigan in Bloodwood. Now I'm simply starting to crave more. [emoji16][emoji41].

    Derrick - You were the retailer. Why would you need to buy one? Didn't you keep some for yourself?

    Nope. I sold all of them. Been kicking myself ever since.

    regarding "current" northwoods knives, is the forest jack the largest pattern in the lineup? i'd love to get my hands on one -- it seems like the traditional slipjoint market is moving towards smaller and smaller knives these days, unless i'm mistaken.
