No mammoth. I was dreaming. Is the picture the exact knife you are getting ? Or is it to show what Appaloosa looks like and yours will be similar ? I think it is the latter.

I've been checking the M&G store daily looking for the release of the ebony version. Checked in a hour or so ago and only saw appaloosa and jigged bone versions up. I started to think that maybe the ebony sold out in minutes before I got online, as sometimes can be the case with these knives. Waited for about 3 more long minutes and the ebony ones popped up. ::ds:: Promptly place my order, can't wait to have it in hand. :D

Yep, that is the stock Appy photo from the M&G knife listing on their site. GEC often hits it out of the park with Appy dye jobs and part of the fun is seeing what pattern you end up with, like that 56 Appy you furnished to me some time back. I recall you weren't thrilled with it but it was a delightful match for some of my Appy knives.

Can't wait to see this M&G.

Between the AAPK knife and the new Lionsteel Warhorse I had to be judicious this week. I may dive back in for an ebony if they stick around long enough but after I lost out on the big hunter I resigned myself to an incomplete collection of the resurgent M&G line... ::facepalm:: Appy bone was far and away priority #1 and I applaud Ken and Roger for choosing it. ::ds::

Good dense black ebony is such a traditional handle material and it stands up perhaps the best of all traditional handle types.
And it makes a knife look 'classy', elegant under statement. I bought an Appaloosa (which has already been shipped ! ::super_happy:: , but the ebony Texas Ranger won't stop talking to me !

Me Too. Thank you for these pictures. Very neat to see all 3 in one picture.
How is the fit & finish ? and blade action ?
I did read a report on the GEC Tidioute version and the poster thought the fit & finish was the best yet, which must be perfect. Likely this same very high standard is carried over into this M&G version.
Do you have a favorite of the 3 ?

Thanks Roland, the action is very good, I would say the main's are better than the 2 other 29's I have received so far and the 2 other blades are excellent.
Fit and finish is top notch, only issue on any of the knives is the coping blade on the jigged bone has an uneven sharpening done to it that I could easily correct if I carry it.
My favorite is probably the Appaloosa with the ebony a close second.

I picked up my three at the Central Kentucky Knife Show yesterday. Man are these some nice knives ! Adding these three along with the new AAPK knife this week has been an extravaganza in knifin' for me. ::groove::

Very nice knives and pics John. If I could be sure I'd get one in appaloosa bone that looked just like yours I'd be sorely tempted to spend more than I should at this time and order one up. ::tu::

Congrats to you as well for getting all three Phil, bet your'e happy you got to that knife show. ::tu::

I got home from a weekend camping excursion to find my Ebony M&G in the mail. Very nicely put together all around, quite pleased with it.

What a solid looking knife and with 3 blades close to full size it will last a full lifetime of daily use. It seems unfair to not use these knives.

Fighting an internal war ever since my Appy version arrived over buying another Appy model for this very reason... ::paranoid::

It is a beautiful knife and eminently usable. Feels just right in hand. I have an Osage orange version of the Tidioute (punch instead of spey blade) coming and that should help me decide which to put in the carry rotation.
