    Cool BCC - Busse Combat Challenge!!!!!


    ADVERTISEMENT
    This is a quickie intro to a project I'm running which I'm calling the BCC, or Busse Combat Challenge. Simply put I'm going to take user suggested tests to push my Busse ASH to the limits (maybe beyond ) and really show off what these blades can do.

    Introductory video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U_NKcyPsCvo

    Please check the video description for links to the other tests. It will be updated as each test is released.

    THE RULES:
    -NOTHING ILLEGAL - somehow someone always comes up with something that just can't be done. Not sure what that would be in this case, but no harm in laying it out there now.
    -Nothing that would violate the warranty - what does this mean? This means we're not trying to intentionally break the knife, we're just looking for the limit.


    I need your feedback for these tests, this one is about you, so lets hear it. Post in the comments below or on Youtube, join the discussion.

    I'll update this thread with further performance benchmarks and tests as things progress. I'm hoping to have the first few gentle tests up by later today.


    *a note to mods*
    Hope this complies now Jaxx. Sry about that.

    Interesting, I'll take a look at your video after work. Personally I think you should start off showing your ash doing some fine work - thin slicing, feather sticks, notches and the like. If you've already covered some of this apologies..

    Benchmark cutting part 2:

    Not the most interesting thing in the world, but it establishes that this isn't just a hunk of steel it actually has quite good cutting geometry. This metric adds credibility to later (hopefully) demonstrations of toughness.

    I'm from all over the northeast. :P As a scientist and engineer I work with metric far more than English, because its a vastly superior system. If I'm just farting around, or trying to talk to an American audience specifically, I may use English, but when I'm actually taking measurements that are important and need to be precise its metric all the way. America is just about the last place in the world where some people bother with English and I've never quite figured out why (we) put up with it. Anyway this is off topic.

    More videos to come.

    Congratulations...finally someone made the jump to video...I´ll be suggesting soon.

    Got one hunter...Might be ridiculous for most who have not experience the situation... in jungle situations you normally get splinters in your hands-arms, can you get the tip so sharp that you can get an splinter off your hand?...that is difficoult to recreate without suffering...so we might replace it with:...¿Can you cut a number "8" clean off a single phone book page?...without tearing the paper?

    Good luck.

    Not sure what you mean by "cut a number 8 out of phone book paper" but if you mean cut an S-curve thats an easy yes.

    As far as digging splinters go, I just gave myself a splinter filming this (not yet released) and dug it out with the knife. No problem. Probably a little too graphic for the tubes though.

    *edit*
    First test, lame as it is, has been put up:

    See THIS is why I need your help for test ideas.

    i would love to see how fast it eats a cinder block. also a car door/hood would be sweet but maybe not too readily available...

    This is an interesting idea. I will be following this one. I can not imagine what some of these guys will suggest.

    I have a couple friends living up on Northern Canada and it was -40c. I wondered what happens to the coating and handles on a knife at that temp?

    I use mine to do all sorts of rough stuff. Splitting large frozen bones for my dog is always a good one. These knives are built like tanks and will perform like one too!

    Here and on the videos I seem to be getting lots of requests to hack into metal, particularly steel like drums or car parts. Since I don't have a spare car lying around to be hacked lets start with a spare heatsink in aluminum and I'll figure out maybe some thin steel sheet later or something.

    Send it to me and I will video me shooting it with my 300 wsm. That would be cool. Or if you have a 30 06 or so video you shooting it in the side of the blade. No 22 cal or the such, shoot the blade broad side with a real gun.

    Or just watch Noss' videos and leave the "test" alone.

    I love the Russian I have seen many of his videos and this one almost cost him dearly. I'd like to hang the Ash1 like a metal pie plate by a bunge strap in the talon or lanyard loop and put a 30 cal in it at 100 yards Trevor. That's what I am refering to. No explosion type stuff, I'll leave that to the Russian.

    Oh Im not worried bout you brutha, and wasnt refering to your post. I just stumbled on the FPS vid, and it seemed new and since Id just watched this challenge video I thought I would hate to see anything bad happen to our new videographer

    Please carry on....mamma is going to bed

    Shoot it with a 30 06? Why do I get the distinct impression that, now that you hogs have sniffed blood, this testing won't end until either A) I severely hurt myself or B) I find myself chatting with one of the very friendly ladies at the Busse warranty department?

    And now that you mention it: didn't Noss rather severely hurt himself doing this which is why he stopped?

    *edit*
    Knife Hunter I do very much appreciate your concern. Familiarity breeds contempt, and I spend too much time playing with too many dangerous toys. Having someone say "slow down and think" is actually very much appreciated. Thanks mate.

    good idea , man .

    take care of your self , take gloves on and be safe.

    i have been cutted(chop it for half hour ) through 1 iron tubing with one inch Diameter with my cold steel gi tanto , and i ruined the edge(with Zero cutting ability left,but no chipping at all ) , after i sharpen it , and it leaves a slight "S" edge on gi tanto .

    so , i wanna see what could happend on your ash1 , i expected it can do better than cheap 1055 mild steel for such abusive using .

    i can do it one more time if you wanna make a comparision .
