Northwoods Knives have built a loyal following since they were founded over 30 years ago.  They are traditional pocket knives with a touch of contemporary design.  The brand was started by Dave Shirley and was later acquired by knivesshipfree in 2009.  These knives sometimes feature rare handle materials such as mammoth ivory and many come with a beautiful carrying case.  Popular patterns include the Heritage Jack, Signal Jack and the Ocoee Jack Knife.  As of 2009, the knives have been made by respected producers of pocket knives such as Great Eastern Cutlery and others by Queen Cutlery.
