Review: GEC “Northfield American Jack” Pocket Knife

Stuff & Things brings you a review of a traditional slipjoint knife, the Great Eastern Cutlery (GEC) Northfield American Jack, #78, cranberry red jig bone. Bradley doesn’t do a very good job of hiding his affection for this knife as he covers form and function, fit and finish, and value for the money. An excellent knife.

Hey Bradley! Thanks to your reviews & recommendation, I am now the proud owner of 4 EA GEC’s. Two slip joints & two fixed blade hunters. Excellent quality & workmanship on all of them. By the way, I just gave your review and channel a plug on the “International Peterson Pipe Club” (IPPC) website. My handle is GI Jim over there.

enjoyable review, love the cranberry bone, I’m not sure if its still called a jack knife if the nail nicks are set on opposite sides of the handles but that’s how I prefer ’em, the main blade can usually sit a bit deeper in the handle then, anyhow I love a jack knife more than any other pattern

lol, “may have to buy more GEC knives and rotate them throughout the week”. That’s how it started for me. In my case, 100’s of dollars later, im still buying/ selling these awesome knives from a great company. Enjoyed the video! I like my Tidioute #78, its sweet but is the backup to my #15 jack that I am continually finding and losing

Nice review, I love my American Jack 78 in African Blackwood. Sure does snap like a trap. The cranberry jigged bone looks great. Thanks for sharing.

BCV Piper says:

Wow! Awesome review! I had no idea that this company existed! Thanks for bringing up to speed. I love traditional American made pocket knives. I’ll definitely give them a look. Take care!

I just last week was able to acquire this knife. I lucked out and was able to get it for around $150. It’s a limited run of 25. Mine is no. 19. I would love to see another video of how your knife looks and how it has performed now that you have used it over the past few years.
