    Sounds great. Of course, no one has actually seen a choilless B8, but if it looked something like this...



    yeah...could DEFINITELY go for a couple.

    YES! THAT'S IT!!!! The ULTIMATE Busse Basic Blade!!!! IF it came .275 thick with the full height grind, the balance would still be excellent, the handle would feel great (take a 1311 and a dogfather out sometime and you can definitely feel the difference) and the blade would be darn near indestructible!!!

    I'm in!!!

    I don't see any either, just assumed it was only text.

    Blank lines in first post were for "dramatic emphasis", a technique I learned from Trevor.

    I wouldn't mind the thickness to be from .187 (remember the Sarsquatch) to .22. This would help keep the weight down so you would carry it, keep the knife fast in hand as for a camp/fighter. I never heard of anyone breaking a Sarsquatch at .187. And of course a choiless option. Also, make it only available in black smooth coat finish as a throw back to the original basic series (as a full flat grind it would be an excellent stripper for those who need satin). This would be a great knife for $249.

    Skinny and Magnum versions? I may need to expand my B8 budget.

    Sounds great!! I'd like to see magnum and anorexic on these along with choil options

  15. #35
    Yeah, I'm probably going to pass if it's over 3/16" and has a choil.

    I want one in COMPETITION FINISH!!!

    Just kidding... satin would be fantastic. Around .22 would be a great size for my uses.

    No!!! Too fat.

    I'm agnostic on the choil for a B8. Have a choilless B10, but all in all the knife just doesn't do it for me; the Satin Battle Rat just feels better. Sort of regretting selling the B9, but I like the B11.

    Sounds like you need to try a B8 with choil, just to cover your bases.

    The "only" basic that never was : p
    Id like one with an elf choil. Just scored a 10 user without choil and considered sending it in for a small sharpen notch. Would do it myself but sounds to easy for a ninny like me : p
