To make a long story short. Finally decided on the the jig bone. I've had the Moose for a little over a week. Overall I'm pleased with it. :)

I think the jigged bone on this Moose looks good. It suits the knife. I bet after six months of riding in a pocket plus getting some use will give a bit of a warm shine to the bone and it will look even better, almost vintage.

Sweet looking 78 Bomba, I'm waiting for the single blade version, supposed to be out this week in the color I want. Nice one.

The single blade 78 with white bone has been at dealers for a few days. I bought one on ebay (GEC dealer, not flipper) Dec 17 and tracking shows will be delivered in another 1-2 days. Paid $80, which included shipping. Not a dealer/seller i have bought from before but his FB is all good and this price seemed too good to pass up.

Got the GEC 78 a few days ago. Much better pull on this knife than some of the the other recent releases.

I opted for the single blade version. I purchased two because one of them is going to be altered according to a devious modification scheme I hatched in my twisted brain. I was surprised at how different the bone is between them...thought it would be nearly identical or more uniform, but clearly it's not.

Bottom one came from The Knife Connection: $79.95 (free shipping)

Seems like the smooth white bone 78 is very popular. My two blade edition is currently "in the mail". USPS says Tuesday but I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Saturday. Alright baby, come to papa.
