    I really like number 4 with out the CBT, perhaps with a option to have one side sharpened and the other with a nice swedge. Or to have both sides sharpened. Perhaps with a lengthened double guard.

    I picked the wrong day to be on the Busse forum. Maybe the first time in a couple of years. I'm a sucker for a Smachet. Dammit!

    As far as drinking and commenting. . . a bit late but keep it simple, and forget chopping of wood and such. A Smachet is for killing. Slicing off a man's arm.

    Prefer coffin-handle just for looks. 11" is probably more historically accurate, IIRC.

    I've got an EDMF Smachet I picked up after he went under from the XC somewhere. Cast aluminum handle. I love fiddling with that thing. Have yet to have a need to remove limb or head from an opponent with it. It's gotta be 14" long. THAT'S big!

    It'll be interesting to see how long it takes to go from drawing board to prototype to production.
    I'm guessing about two weeks.
