The original Northfield knife company a Connecticut based operation in business from 1858 to 1926. UN-X-LD was their branded emblem which means “unexcelled” or basically, “not to be out-done”. Known for their quality, these originals are highly collectible today. In 2006, Great Eastern revived this legacy and began manufacturing Northfield Un-X-LD pocket knives as their premium line of traditional pocket knives. Northfield knives have the fit and finish that you would expect to see on a well-made early 1900’s era pocket knife.
Northfield blades and springs are made with 1095 carbon steel, fitted with forged straight nail pulls, cut swaging, and are finished to a mirror polish. Handles are made in house at the GEC Bone Works and are made of exotic materials such as India Stag Antler, Cocobolo Wood, Snake Wood, and North American Cattle Bone.
These new Northfield UN-X-LD knives rival the originals in materials, craftsmanship, and rarity. As a result, these knives have quickly become highly sought after and collected. Olde Towne Cutlery is proud to represent these beautiful products.
