    All I can say is wow! She came Saturday with a Sage coating. Yesterday was Etch, Strip, and Sand day. Took a few pics for you guys. I absolutely love this blade! My TGLB is very jealous right now.

    After finally owning one, it truly is in a class all of it's own. This Busse suits just about every survival situation I can think of, except for maybe cutting watermelons.....lol.

    Fine --- I'll give you a pass. The ASH-1 can handle any Watermelon you throw at it. It might even get one pregnant

    Very nice! I have one of the Battle Grade models and the ASH-1 is a great feeling knife in the hand. There is a reason they don't stay on the exchange very long.

    Looks great! I have one of the HOGASH's and did something similar.

    Your satin looks amazing but if you ever want a short cut a 50/50 mix of Scat Magic & Red Garnet is almost a perfect match for Busse Doublecut, a touch more aggressive.
