Harpoon tip FTW!
My vote goes for the HR.....
Hi from New Mexico. I'm a new guy to Blade Forums and am looking for the original Team Gemini's. As I see that you are a Busse Forum Moderator, would you know any way that I can get the Busse Custom Shop to make me a couple Team Gemini's like the one's you've got pictured here? I've got three, one for me and each of my two sons, Team Gemini Light Brigade models on order with them. I bought a Steel Heart I back in 1998, a Satin Jack in 2004 and an Argonne Assault Light Brigade this year. I have to say though that the highly polished convex edged models with full tangs are the epitome of a perfect knife. As you can probably tell I've got Busse fever, don't know how I missed the original offering of the Team Geminis but any info you can throw my way will be very appreciated. Thanks and take care, Greg
Hi WagonWheelGap, There wasn't an offering of the 1st generation Team Geminis from the Busse web site as there is with the Light Brigade Team Geminis. They trickled out at shows and ganzas. This is an approximate timeline:
-tanker gray w black canvas
-black with black canvas
-desert sage with tan canvas plus the two listed above
Knob Creek 4-2011
-M/O military overrun sage with olive G10
plus about 15 other combinations of 1 to 4 of each available. Lots of G10 and customs
-Satin with tigerhide linen
Knob-O-Ganza Fall 2011
Satin bowie blade with no fuller with tan canvas
Various Ohio Shows 2011
-some interesting custom Team Geminis
Here are some examples (I love this knife!):

Maybe I'm a bit different but I like the looks of the double guard...have from the first moment I saw the original TG posted. There was something about the look that just said "military" that drew me in. I never bought the original TG as I couldn't afford it then but I jumped at the chance to order one when the LB series was posted. Now, I've got a reasonable collection with the B10 LE #44, [LBTG-soon], BJ Custom Shop variant, SY SS4, SAR3 LE#3, Shiva Rex, Skeleton Key and a Bear Cub HACK. I don't feel the need for any of the larger blades though, if I could afford one, there'd be a Gladius in the family in a heartbeat!

i plan to get me a TG once i sell off my savage 12bvss
One of my favourites!!!
I still have a HOFSH and a Hellrazor, but I have sold a DSSF, Tankbuster, and a Killa Zilla. The Hellrazor is my favorite!
I'd sure like to try a hell raiser but everytime one comes up for sale they are out of my league. Maybe the Janitor could rerelease this classic knife?
Hmmm... Hell Razor... Team Gemini? The answer is BOTH!!! One in each hand.
I hope no one minds me bumping this thread. It has some great info and pics in it.
I'm also trying to decide between these two as they both look great.
Does anyone have the specs on the Hell Razor please?
And can someone tell me where the point of balance is on the TGLB and HR?
Thanks in advance
