    Great idea!

    I'm still waiting on my 1311s, two of which will go in these sheaths.

    I usually receive the knives first and then order the sheaths. This time the sheaths arrived first.

    Strange but good.

    I got mine today. It feels awesome. My largest Scrap Yard box ever. I am glad the Yard used the thinner stock. I think the thicker stock would be too much.

    The blades shown here is a modified (handle and cho) 19" ang Khola, a svord machete, and a nicholson 18" machete. The crazy part is that the three heavier knives have the same balance. The only difference is the weight. The beauty of the svord machete that ranks it above nearly all of it's competition (even excluding price range) is it's balance, it's blade heavy and feels like it can chop, yet is quick enough that it feels light in the hand. The same is true of the 1311, but it's much heavier in the hand. Heavier still is the ang khola with it/s 1/2" blade thickness.

    I wish I had other busse models to compare it to in the photo's, but they have all been sold off. Compareing this to the B10LE (choiless) I would say that I'd choose this if I could only have one, having had both. The basic 10 (choiless) is probably a better back packing knife in that it's a bit lighter feeling in the hand, but the 1311 has more potential, having more skill as a machete and being able to reach farther into brambles without threatening your hand.

    (1/2" thick ang khola, 3/16" 1311, 1/8" thick svord machete)


    SQUIGGLES!!!!!!


    and a little forced perspective to make it look super looooooooooong

    This came fast, about two weeks ago. I used PayPal so it was paid for when I ordered it so I think it shipped sooner than most.
    I did a little chopping with her and love it. It's very comfortable and bites deep. Its gonna be hard to top the 1311 at any price.

    From this...



    To this in under 10 minutes...



    And while I know it was not a exhausting task, it was the branch that needed delt with, so it's the branch I fed to my 1311.

    Like it never even happened after photos...
