    Okay, that's the coolest knife I've seen in a long time. Dunlap is doing mighty fine work, and that armadillo looks GREAT!!!

    Of all Charles' knives, this is one of my absolute favorites. The texture / colors of the covers is over the top and the fit and finish can't be faulted.

    The bottom shot of the backspring is outstanding.

    I agree with all of the earlier comments. And it has all my favorite elements, including my new favorite scale material!

    Talking about Armadillo scales, is it their outer 'leather armour' that's used? Being European I've never seen one of these amusingly bizarre animals except in a zoo. Is it tough and must it be stabilised? Gives an outstanding look to the knife:cool:

    And after checking out all the previous posts and pictures, is the Case swayback jack just a reversed Bose #8 pattern?

    The Northwoods Norfolk definitely qualifies as a small gentleman’s knife.

    No the number 8 is 3” closed and the frame is not the same. The 8 is slimmer overall, including the blade.
