The Great Eastern Cutlery Northfield #97 Allegheny (Large Coke Bottle) is a traditional style pocket knife with the ever popular "coke bottle" shape handle. At 4.75" long, it's a realatively large knife that will handle a variety of cutting tasks that come up during ones day. Made with pride in Titusville, PA. We are an authorized Great Eastern Cutlery Dealer and purchased this new knife direct from them.
This Tidioute #97 Allegheny features a single, saber ground 1095 steel blade. The Clip Point blade makes it a great knife for every day use. The polish finished blade has a cutting edge of 3.5". A unique feature of this knife is that it has two nail nicks for opening, a long pull in the normal position and a regular one in a forward position. The blade has "NORTHFIELD UN-X-LD" etched on it.
The Handle Construction:
The handle scales are Gabon Ebony. The two groove bolster, end cap and "Cloud" shield are nickel silver. The attaching pins and liners are brass. The handle scale edges are flush with the outside perimeter making the knife pleasant to hold. The fit and finish are excellent and the blade action is crisp when opening and closing.
