BUSSE Combat

Mar 2, 1999
Is the new BUSSE Combat ad in the Oct.issue of Blade Magazine "Great Humor or what". Whoever is thinking up their ad campaign is doing a fine job of it.

YES,it is sharp, just keep your fingers out of the way!

It was kind'a funny to look at right off the bat, but it took me a few times reading through it to get it, very funny

So is that Lynn Thompson sitting down in the ad? LoL

Hi guys, is it a copyright violation if someone posts a scan of this page/ad? I really would like to see it, having been mentioned somewhere else, but I don't have access to those magazines, unfortunately..

No it is not ilegal if you do not profit from it.

Do it! Do it right! Do it right NOW!

Is it really true that the BM went through 1/2 inch of steel without any defomation to the blade? And is it really true that it held 32,000 lbs without breaking? That's about 8 big cars! I just can't picture any knife being able to do this. I really want to get one of Busse's knives even if they don't do what their adds claim. I was just wondering if it is really true because I find it hard to believe. Maybe I'm just ignorant. Can anybody with better knowledge enlighten me on this? thanks..
Someone emailed me the pic, Mike.. And it's really hilarious! hehehehe... Thanks, Charles! You forgot to put your handle on the email, so I don't know who to thank over here!

Please post it! Don't worry about copyright ... the last thing any advertiser would do would be to complain if his ad gets posted without him having to pay for it....

I have never dreamed our esteemed leader (MT) was a lawyer! OK, I have never dreamed about him at all.

However, I think you should take the "never profit from it, ergo no copyright infringement" with a grain of salt... It is simply incorrect as to the law. If you want to check, try adding R US to something. If Danny R. ever gets noticed by the toy Nazis he will have some really interesting visitors with good suits and expensive briefcases....

On the other hand, posting a scan of an ad in a discussion group in which such published items are routinely discussed would be VERY unlikely to be viewed as a copyright infringement... I'd make sure and post the appropriate reference.

Okay guys.. here's the pic. Just let me know if this is illegal or what not, so that I can delete it right away.


Hehehe.. reminds me of the alien from the movie "Mars Attacks", the ones that go "At At At At At..." lol!!!

I never noticed before the angle between the handle and the blade on the Basic. Does the Battle Mistress have the same slope?
