Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! I'm thinking of getting a Busse AK47 in SR101 steel but I'm wondering whether it might be better to go with Dawson in 80CrV2? Dawson is definitely more pricey, and they come with sheaths. Busse has no sheath, but I'm sure I can always improvise something. Has anyone used either make in a short sword style? This would be used for chopping up to 2 inch thick trees, backyard cutting and messing around, that kind of thing.
