    First, Happy Birthday bossman, and many many more,

    but, you did not show this blade well when you introduced it, so I passed on it.

    It wasnt until hogs posted proper pics that I realized what a sweet piece it was. In the introductory pics it looked thick and stubby, but when the hogs took their pics its true flowing slicey lean beauty was exposed.

    Im not one to tell a master smith how to present his blades, but I do think that more better pics would present the knives better to potential buyers.

    Thanks Jerry--happy 35 years of knife making and happy birthday! This is my favorite Busse blade to date!

    PS--it was my oldest daughter (10) that told me I had to strip it!

    Really great strip job btw! It just looks like it's been stretched and lost a few lbs in these pics! ;)

    It really is a long, lean blade, that's still robust enough to handle true heavy duty work. Thanks!

    All stripped! Man-o-Man this thing looks great necked! So this black/gray color is that decarb I've read about I assume? Got a pretty good gremlin on one side but as Jerry said, just a birthmark. To get that CBT cleaned out is gonna be a btch! Coating is hiding too much awesome for me.

    I am glad to be in for this one!
    Anyone has a stripped spike version?
    I imagine that would be even more awesome

    Those strippers look amazing!

    I took a chance on Garth Gold and Green Micarta and then for a bit got worried I'd be accused of being a Norte Dame fan ;) Now that it's here I am thrilled with the color combo, so won't be stripping. This is an epic knife and I have some cool plans in mind for sheathing it in a way that facilitates its intended use..

    Happy Birthday Jerry!

    Not sure MntMan, but maybe call Amy and see if there are any available due to cancellations. It's really a sweet blade.
