    Thats weird 1st time i ever saw anything like that; its possible that the former owner engraved his last name into it if you got this knife used.

    I was thinking the same, previous owner may have had that engraved...found out this is a LE Fusion Steel Heart Fat version.

    Not me, I'd just tell people that's what I named my knife.

    For $400 I can live with the name on there, the rest of the knife is solid.....Thanks for all the input, it is much appreciated.

    You should do with that name on the blade what my brother in law does when he gets a check engine or ABS light on in his car; put a piece of electric tape over it :D

    I think this is the knife that the inducted Hogs could get personalized when they ordered,

    It clearly is a fake!

    I can quietly and without judgment recycle the steel for you free of charge, will even cover the postage cost.

    Welcome to BladeForums!

    Congrats, you got a GREAT deal on a really nice knife! :eek:
    The name on it would not bother me at all. But, if you decide to get rid of it, I will meet @elof_alv 's offer and throw in some beer too. ;):D

    Looks like a personalized blade. It's quite cool.

    That was the HOG Edition ASH 1. That was a different model with a coated blade, and the engraving was different. As you can see here.

    Holy Toledo.... errr.... I mean Wauseon! That's a hell of a fine knife you scored, at almost an unbelievable price. You sir are one lucky hog, where the heck do you find a swap meet that trades Busse? That's just the darnedest thing I've ever heard...

    A few years back it was "Strongly Recommended" by the military that soldiers put their names on personal items. Eliminated questions of ownership. Not saying that is what this is. I don't remember every name that we ever put on a knife. That would be a possibility though.

    Name or no name, you made a great score. Congrats.
