if for no reason other than it is the first INFI knife, it is worth having one. There are much better Busse chopper designs that have come since. But the SHBM is a piece of history and what gave INFI it's name. You have no idea how hard it was to try to get one when they first came out. I had my order in, but I still searched gun/knife shows to get one. I even had Lynn Thompson of Cold Steel offer to buy mine off me in 1998 at a Cali Gun show. lol. I of course said NO! He was even willing to give me double what I had paid. I told him to call Jerry and order one himself.
