Hi Chuck

Nice old knife and good find. It is a stockman model,and if a genuine Winchester,was

made between 1919 and 1942. The last genuine Winchester was made in 1942.

That was one tough old feller,that lived in that cabin.

Chuck It would be safe to bet that your Northfield is older than you are,and is a keeper.

Northfield made knives from 1858 to 1926. They went out of business in 1926 and the land

and factory was sold to the state. One employee continued to build a few knives for

about 40 years after using the Northfield trademark. There is a new company that has taken

over the trademark ,and make knives in the same style.

Your knife shows to be an original ,and is very collectable . Condition is what controls the

price. There should be a serial number on one of the blades. With that you can tell when it

was made.
