    What the sheet? Used to be lovingly called the Swine Shaving Sharpness Sheet (SSSS)!

    We are getting our Busse blades in 30 days from order date, or less. I got my NFNO in 14 days! Honestly I don’t care what the sharpness sheet says or what kind of tape is on the box. Keep um coming Busse:D:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    No “sharpened by” stickers any more either. But yeh cranking them out in record time and cutting time and costs is good for us!

    I do agree, that the stickers and tape and SSSS was a great personal touch. I liked knowing who sharpened the blade and knowing that it was inspected. I would have to say the positive changes outweigh the negative.

    The MMD coming your way has bacon tape and a "Sharpened By" and "Inspected By" sticker. Glad you liked the HOG B8. Your BB-13 also has those stickers

    I don't know why but I have gotten far more evenly ground edges on my blades ever since those stickers disappeared. They can stay gone as far as I'm concerned. Lol!

    I definitely think the personal touch theme is nice...but IMO....not needed, and eventually I sharpen it, so I need a Sharpened by Zombieassassin sticker.
    The days when you could call Pokey or Lexi and shoot the bull on the phone with them are the days I'll remember more than the SSSS or sharpening sticker days. I enjoy what Busse is doing now....Amy is kickin tail for all of us, and Garth is awesome just keeping sparks flying for us.
    Thanks guys! Busse Rocks.

    If it's a choice between a personal touch with an 8-12 month wait or no personal touch and a 3-5 week wait, I think I know what we'll all choose. :D:D:D

    Keep up the great work team!

    With so many knives going out right now, the logistics of keeping track of who sharpened what was slowing stuff down.

    Yep. Like I was saying, I'll take these shipping times without the stickers any day of the year

    Bid start at $0.99 with $5 shipping!!

    Sorry...I'll take Quality with Sticker's Sharpened/Inspected by over QUANTITY every day of the week...Busse Combat Knives stand for Made in the USA Handcrafted Quality...Not Mass produced Quantity just to meet shipping expectations:(
