I listed the first of the #35 Churchill I received yesterday and have to say it’s a nice sized ‘cigar’. It fits the hand nicely and doesn’t weigh a ton in your pocket.
When you put the two knives side by side you quickly understand where the model number came from. The earlier #53 on the right (below) got shrunk down to a #35 Chruchill (left). I was never a huge fan of the original 53 due to the size but the new #35 feels a whole lot more pocket friendly.
There will more of these coming in with different handles in the next few weeks. Typically, the Northfields will be the last to come through.
A quick note on the Hurricane Sale. I have to admit that I’ve made an ‘offline’ transaction that cleaned up some of the intended sale items. My intent was to get more knives in the store, but when it comes to fund raising, I’ll take it where I can get it! What I’ve done is lower the prices this morning on the few knives left in the category and will get a couple more in there before the day’s out. I want to wind this up by the weekend so don’t wait!
I’m a supporter of the Wounded Warrior Project and make it a point to send a check every now and then to help. With the hurricanes hitting the southern states and Puerto Rico as hard as they have, just seemed like it was time to support the Salvation Army and Red Cross a bit. It’s good to have a business that pays the bills and has some excess left over to give back. Anybody tells you they’re making too much money, suggest they send some of those excess funds to folks in need.
