Northwoods Knives Indian River Jack Overview

The review is coming later this week, but I have been so pleased with this knife I didn't want to skip the overview.  Suffice to say, this is about the perfect traditional knife for me.  Don't underestimate how cool the slip case is because it is awesome.  Also I confirmed that unlike prior runs, this version of the Indian River Jack did not come convex ground as I stated in the video.  This is a $129 knife that has the materials and fit and finish of a Mnandi with an olde timey appeal:

  2. Looking forward to the review proper. I think modernised traditional folders have a lot going for them.

    You have a hook attached to your Cadet, what kind is it?

    1. When you win the Manufacturing Award at Blade for something like 17 out of the last 20 years, its safe to say your the industry standard for fit and finish. Given CRK's benchmark status, I think it is fair to reference him.

    2. I will agree with Tony on this. Chris Reeve sets an incredible benchmark for fit and finsih.

    1. I am more of a Werther's Originals kinda guy, but actually the Queen Copperhead and the AG Russell Barlow predate this knife. I have been there for a while.
