Just received the Maher & Grosh Texas Ranger (GEC 29). I’d been considering this knife or the stockyard whittler for quite some time. Very happy with the decision; finally preferring the spey and three spring construction over an awl. And comparing it in my mind to my 66 calf roper. Awls are fine, I use one one a SAK Farmer.
sunknife , finally got one. I prefer the ebony, however GEC does a great job on this style jigging.

Very nice JB. Ya can't go wrong with any of 'em IMO. After I ordered my ebony version I saw some of the appaloosa ones and started second guessing my selection. I like the bone color on yours and the shield is just right for these knives. Congrats on finding it.
One of the two beasts I’m waiting for arrived today. View attachment 1351463
The 307 is such a great knife. It’s the kinda knife that makes a guy wish he needed to carry it on a daily basis. In case you may not be familiar with the 307 here’s a pic with a 303 ( med stockman). View attachment 1351465
