Thanks Jeff. Yes, I think it was a first for GEC.
Trand, the antique yellow on the conductor is great looking-- never seen that jigging before in any color.

... on a 2008 Barlow. This is perhaps as authoritative as I can be, meaning, this is what horsecut jigging looks like on antique bone on a 2008 Northfield Barlow. Any other iteration or combination of jigging/bone/pattern may look quite different! That said, the jigging and coloration appears to be consistent among the few 2008 barlows that I've seen:
(Thanks again, kai76.)
...As seen on a White Owl:
So, the bone is Autumn Gold; does this uniform jigging pattern (which looks like it might be identical on every White Owl with this bone[?]) have a name?
Beautiful P.! If I had to choose between the autumn gold and the blood red as my favorite GEC jigged bone, I don't know which one I would select.
Here's my contribution:
I sure love the looks of that horsecut jigging though. It's going on my wishlist for sure
GEC is not one to sit around, they're coming up with new jigging and colors. They just posted this on their website.
Looking at these pics, and fondling the 73L grizzly bone-handled GEC that I recently took ownership of, something occurs to me. Yes, these jigging patterns look great. But perhaps more importantly, they really feel great in hand, and offer a great non-slippy grip! I know I'm preaching to the choir here, but they are really built for work. Based on the one GEC I own, I'm a big fan.
i really need to stay out of the traditional section of this forum, im gonna be sleeping on the couch if i spend any more $$$ on knives this month. LOL
because of this thread ive been looking at [an online dealer] and i see alot of GECs that i want, but cant decide which one should be my first.
you guys are killing me

Someone correct me if I'm mistaken, but I think this GEC SFO sports the jigging pattern that's slated for use on the 2012 Forum knife.
It's attractive, but IMO, a bit "mechanical" looking. It's very smooth and feels great in the hand, but it's slippery compared to some of the more natural/random jigging patterns in GEC's stable.
I sent GEC an email to ask for commission on their sales.
You're a bad influence on my wallet Jake!
A lot of people seem to like claws or clawed animals. ...My suggestions (shot down!) were Nor'easter jigged bone
and Huckleberry jigged bone ..."I'm your huckleberry."
