The Black Plum jigged bone will have a "crest" shield. Brown Burlap micarta #74 will have the "badge" shield. The Arizona Ironwood will have the "bomb" shield. Sambar Stags won't have any.

I just caught this. I wonder why GEC is switching the shield up on this one when they are keeping everything else the same as the #74 run. The Black Plum #74 had a Federal shield where the Black Plum #47 will have the Crest - I don't find that objectionable, only curious.

Isn’t a shield a crest? What’s the difference in shape between the two?

Here is GEC's shield chart - note the difference between Crest and Federal. They are similar, being that they are a classic "shield" shape but they do differ.

I'm on the fence with this run. I was lucky enough to grab a 74 in arizona ironwood, which I'm very happy with, and I just got my BF knife in the mail. Can anyone out there do a side by side photo of the BF knife from viper and a 47 from a past run? I'd be curious to see them compared because I am feeling like getting the 47 might be a little redundant for me.

As much as I'd like one, I'm guessing it'll be another short run, and I'm predicting crazy high prices.
After the recent 74 and 19 pricing fiascos, I'm boycotting a lot of the distributors.
If I can get one through Mike I will- he's an honest guy- otherwise I'll sleep okay at night while the fur flies.
