    Dunno, but one just like this one was very recently sold on the auction site as White Owl 681211 STL. And the listing reads:
    "White owls are a pretty hard to find pattern, and this one is especially rare with steel frame and no badge, 1 of 19 made."

    After seeing your pictures I regret not bidding.

    The Owl is a great pattern. Mine is a 682211. I'll check in on this mystery from time to time.

    Not to hijack the thread...just wanted to post the Pony Jack version of Travman's #68 owl. I wish I could get this one back. I'd go for another run of #68's in these covers all the way around!!

    When I saw mine in the case at GEC, this is what I assumed it was. I assumed it was the 2013 Pony Jack version like yours. I bought a few knives at the same time so I didn’t really check out my new 68 until the following morning.

    I notice this thread has some picture casualties, if anyone has a burning desire to show off some #68s go for it! Personally I’m fond of the Northfield’s with bails, but any would be nifty.
    Thanks, Neal

    Sadly I don’t have any White Owls :oops: I have multiple of the pony jacks which I love. Hopefully GEC will do another run in the future.

    2011 and 2013 were good years for the #68s!! I've kept, and even used a few like the ebony!
    Nicely sized and pocket friendly!! Nice find Trav!! Hope GEC brings a version back!!

    @waynorth -Charlie lol, who filled the Bail? It looks very sleek that way.
    @Norcaldude -love those with Clip blades! And the Stag is phenomenal too.
    Thanks, Neal

    What are the covers on the other Northfield (the one with the UN-X-LD shield)?

    Correct!:cool: The original was pmew from Scotland who gave it to me, he removed the bail. I then passed the knife back to the States. It is Coco but is so dark that it looks like Ebony. I think I may have the original tube somewhere...

    Big White Owl enthusiast here, really would like to get hold of a Spear one as all mine are Clips.

    Thanks, Will

    Thanks Charlie. As always you have displayed some awesome examples. I don’t recognize the second one down. May I ask what are the handles on that one?
