Txjohn, that's has to be Golden Rod since it has the nickel bolsters. I just looked on the GEC website and under "Our Cover and #44 Tidioute Cutlery, Buffalo Jack (Gunstock)", this picture is also posted:

The Golden Rod knife is going to have the Tidioute shield instead of the one shown on the original poster.

Found this too.

Does anyone have an OD green micarta example to post? I have seen GEC's pics but it is hard to get a good idea of the actual color, seems like they look almost black in their pics. Anyone have one in hand?

My #44 Goldenrod Jig Tidioute arrived this week and it is a great knife! Serious walk and talk, beautiful brass back springs and a very vintage look to it.
Great weight and fit finish. when I puller it out of the tube, it needed to be flushed a bit but once my Quick Release kicked in, it was perfect! Thank you Barry,aka GunstockJack, who has been a friend for many years, for getting me this great GEC!

Perry, your knife has some great color! That's the best pic I've seen yet of the Goldenrod Bone. Very nice!

Those are some good looking goldenrod shots, guys! The main blade on mine came with a visible "step" in the satin buff about 3/8" from the tip, on both sides. I haven't seen anything like that before. It's very apparent in electric lights indoors, but in full sun it disappears. The outdoor pics I took today don't show it. If I send it back to GEC they'd probably touch it up no problem, but since this is a user I might just force a patina and forget about it. I'll try to get some pics and post them sometime. Does anyone else have this same characteristic on their 44 clip?

Now on to the pics...

I love the main clip and I really like how it's actually a little longer than the 78 main spear, even though the 78 frame is 1/4" longer.

I've been admiring the color of my Beer Scout since I got it, and I'm thrilled to get almost the same color on this 44. The 44 is just a tad darker, but the same basic golden color. They almost glow translucent in the full sunlight.

Hey Lee, I checked mine out and doesn’t seem to have what you were describing but great pics! I really like that beer scout to.
