    Thanks guys! I can't wait to take it on my first adventure in the U.P. I hope to acquire a Michigan and Broadway Jack in the future. And as long as I'm able to, at least one from all the new runs :)

    Great thread! I love the Northwoods line and I am over the moon about the upcoming Hawthorne run. Been wanting one of those for a long time. My collection so far missing my dearly departed lost Burnside.

    Ken It's gratifying to see that you enjoy using your knives, makes utter sense!

    I absolutely LOVE the mark side grain of that mammoth Pres, Ken!

    So maybe this wasn't a factory goof, but instead just a nod to the past Scagel cutouts. :D

    That's a hole in the nail nick of my presidential. I just always assumed it was from putting the nick to high up where the swedge was to thin.

    Great photos of the Bear Lake. I almost passed on buying one, glad I picked up one in stag. Looking forward to getting a stag Hawthorne in the near future.

    Derrick, I used to own that very one. It is fabulous! Such an incredible slicer. The S60V blade make it quite unique.

    Thanks Will! I don't own any safe queens. I have a few that I hang on to for sentimental reasons, but generally, if I find if I don't bond with a knife after carrying it few times, I move it on.

    Thanks Erik! It really is spectacular; I got lucky on this one!

    Thanks Jeff!

    Beautiful knife Derrick!

    Here are my two Willamette Whittlers. I love this version of the wonderful 38's from Bill and the fine folks at GEC! :D

    I'm loving my new Michigan Jack. I can't wait for the run of Hawthornes to come out.

    I wonder if we will ever see a Northwoods GEC made lockback. I'm sitting here looking at my GEC 72 and found myself wondering what it would look like in black camel bone with an arrowhead shield...
