    Awesome data! What's the handle, is that blk canvas? Looks really gray but might be the flash?

    Yes ordered black canvas. It is darker than the black canvas ordered on the FBM BG. It is my favorite handle material and the most comfortable to use.

    Nice job collecting all the numbers. Good data. Interesting how the TG-P weighs so close to the A2 and 14 with so much more blade length.

    Of the 14, LB, and A2, do you have one you favor over the others?

    Thanks for the weight comparisons and pics!

    The A2 is my first TG and I'm pretty impressed. Can definitely see the appeal of the LB, being 5 ounces lighter, but I like the heft of the A2 version as well.

    One thing I was surprised and happy to see is the detail of adding bevels all along the spine and around the talon holes, etc. Not quite a nuclear meltdown treatment, but it still softens all the corners a great deal. Nice touch, Busse. :thumbsup:

    The SE/LE/proto treatment often has that extra bezel-like touch, it is really nice and definitely suits the SE name! Very cool!

    Also have the edges are chamfered!! Nice little extra care.

    Fuller looks shorter on the A2, should give her a little more weight in the shout.

    Holy crap! I had no idea the TGA2 was going to be so thick!

    My 2.5# shipment has been stuck in the PO Box since Saturday just after the PO closed. That never fails to happen. The USPS around here is so slow anymore that the 2-day priority from Waseon to So. MD, that always ships on Thursday, gets stuck in the Box until Monday. This time, with the MLK day and a dr. appt. tomorrow, 2 days is probably going to end up being 6 days.

    Those are some awesome photos, AGH. And nice leather. I think we’re gonna have to talk.

    The TGA2 Black with Maroon canvas showed up Friday and I really like the Maroon Canvas. It's great color combo.

    I got myself one with Hammered Silver finish and Maroon Canvas scales as well. Just picked it up at my local customs authorities :)
    While ordering, I was concerned about the looks, because there were no pics of this particular combination online. But it turned out just fine! Has some kind of vintage/steampunk-feel to it :p

    Since I blasted the coating off, I had to redo the factory markings :D
