Are Busse knives the only high end production knives actually being used?

Agreed! If BUSSE were not there, MBB is where it's at! Good call!

I would be interested to try their new stuff, the thing that kept me from buying from them years ago was the prices that they were asking for 5160 as the only option

Yea, as their popularity has increased in the past couple of years, I feel like their prices have as well. Although they do offer various types of steel now, their prices are quite steep. However, you know you are getting a complete custom blade (if you so chose) that is 100% handmade with 100% USA made products and not to mention they do some of the highest quality custom kydex sheaths for their blades as well (check out their FB page). Again, I LOVE me some Busse, but I am not afraid to recognize (and purchase) other quality blades when I see them. You can't go wrong with MBB.

I have an Esee 6 , admittedly its low on the totem pole of knives that I now use, If I had a good camera setup I would start abusing it for a cool video see how it stacks up to my TGLB.
I've got the 6 as well. If this was a discussion about a tool that got the job done it'd win hands down, especially if cost/efficiency is considered. This is more about high-end "safe queen" worthy blades put'n in work (or the lack thereof). The 6 isn't gonna win you any contests regarding how much you spent but it'll beat the pants off any blade out there get'n a fire started. Kept me dry for a month back country in Montana. If you're gonna try & get laid w/your pimp'n blade game while batoning some kindling better got get a Busse or Randall.

Not A manufacture but Joe Calton did the best 1095 heat treat I have experienced. I hate 1095 too in saying that.

I have an ESEE Junglas that I have beat the piss out of. No abuse, only normal hard use:

I know it's not "high end" but it's not cheap either. It has held up beyond my expectations

Many custom makers use 1095 successfully as well as ESEE and even tops. It isn't the best steel but it gets the job done.

Iv been watching the mmb videos last week and kinda wondering when it comes to cutting through 1/4 plate steel like they do, is it the steel and heattreat of the knife or edge geometry that that allows the knife to not chip on steal to steel contact. Example I chipped my regulator the otherday hit peice of steel while chopping a branch on my tailgate was a very minor easy fix. But if I adjusted the edge made it thicker do you think it could chop plate steel without damage like the MBBS in the videos?

Geometry plays much bigger role than steel/ht when it come to destruction use.
