    I see no pics and no way am I clicking on anything from china as it probably has a virus or lead. Sometimes things get through that should not. However, where was your friend in all this. You just got these knives? I have had mine for about 6 months. So where were those knives sitting for half a year? Did your buddy have them for half a year? or where they in a chinese wharehouse collecting Rust? I have never seen rust come directly from Busse. I have literally bought hundreds of Busses. Not a one with Rust. But if it did, did your friend advise you to contact them first or maybe himself doing it? just wondering. Then, you judge Busse off of one transaction? seriously.

    I'm sorry you can't see my pics, but some people see them without problems, I'm new to this forums so I'm not good at upload my pics. I have contact LIN and tell her my problems when I got my knife at first time, I don't know why cost so long to receive these knives, but I asked some people in my country that booked busse knives from proxy, most of them wait a long time like me. as you mentioned the rust, yes it is possible that is caused by other reasons. when I received the package, its remained original factory package, no trace shows they are unpacked by anyone. I must make myself clear that I did not judge Busse for this one case, I didn't say any bad words to Busse in this thread, like I mentioned before, I didn't see the thread about customer service so I created this thread directly. I also think I, as a customer, have right to complain if I get a product with quality problems. Dude, you can tell me your email and I will send my pics to you, then you'll know I'm not exaggerating.

    DANG! I didn't think about right-clicking on those image links, Cobalt! ARGH!

    But, they did turn out to just be flickr.com image links. But anyway....

    I will say that I have received one knife directly from Busse that had some slight red rusting, inside the lanyard hole at the butt end of the knife. This was my HOG Badger in BIG DC BB (or whatever the correct term is) finish. I never thought anything of it. But, just saying, it can happen. Nobody's perfect.

    So, it is possible that rust developed inside the box since it is all paper and humidity can be a problem. The other issues may be a legitimate problem from the factory, and they need to repair that. However, if you read your own post let me show you where you judge, when you say you don't. I bolded your comments so we are clear what I have a problem with. You judged busse on one knife experience. If you do not understand your own post then maybe you should not post it.


    But lets say you have a small business in china, a store. And lets say that I bought something from the store and it broke the next day. Then say that instead of going to you first to get it replaced, I went and stood outside your store with a big sign that says, "I HAD A TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE AT THIS STORE. ITEM BROKE. MAYBE PEOPLE TELL ME IT IS NORMAL TO SELL BROKEN STUFF AT THIS STORE. " How would you like that. Do you want someone to do that to you?

    This is more likely an UNDERestimation as opposed to an exageration. :eek:

    The number is most likely in the quadruple digits. :D:D:D

    ok, I just looked at your pics. I did not see the rust, but maybe you had already removed it. The blade is uncoated comp finish right? So comp finish is not perfect. Busse has done this for us because most of us prefer it to coatings. The blade is not a perfect satin finish. I am not sure you understand what competition finish is, but I am pretty sure all of these were comp finish and they had flaws as they were not finished to a perfect satin finish which would have dramatically increased the price of the knife.

    I know what competition finish is. the Hog gemini I received along with this fmv14 is competition finish too, and it has not show any problems I mentioned before. these marks is obviously if you look with naked eye. but if you say it's normal, then I have nothing to say. Everyone speaks in different ways, I'm just talking about this product.

    Competition finish is often misunderstood by those new to Busse. It is essentially a Combat Grade blade (coated) without the coating and the decarb removed.

    Satin Finish is usually at least $100 more and on the FMV14 would likely have been $250+ more because of the CBT (has there ever been a satin CBT blade?) and size.

    The irregularities from the tooling create opportunities for rust so a nice mineral oil or frog lube is recommended to keep it pristine. Some of the guys on this forum have "Satinized" comp finished blades to minimize the risk and dress them up.

    This Sarsquatch I had started as a Competition Finish but was given the Satin treatment by one of the members here.

    Yes, in the past people who did not understand what comp finish was, complained and Busse took the option away from us. Comp finish has flaws. That is the way it is. Some have more than others. So you did not understand that it comes with the flaws.

    Man, theres nothing more beautiful than a hand applied Satin Busse from the Custom Shop. Imo, anyways. But, I like the Competition Finish better to be honest.

    I will admit, I was one who questioned/ complained about comp finish recently, bot knowing it was a rougher finish and was't designed to be perfectly symmetrical and pretty (CBT made grind marks look a fair bit different on each side).

    I think this is something that could be better deacribed on busse's site, somewhere in the coating/blade finish options page. Aimilar to DC (didn't know it meant double cut or what that was either). One of the pluses and minuses of having so many options is not knowing what some of those options are and sometimes it can be tricky to find it. Kind of an example, on the recent hell razor release, someones asked about the intended purpose of the butt/skull checker on the knife but no resposes given.

    So, I suspect there to be confusion on things like comp finish until there is easy to find info out there somewhere. I think the only thing harder to find, for a noob at least, are the specs of an older model.

    Having said all that, it's not a small feat to offer so many knives in so many options at such a quality with some of the feats of engineering these appear to have. And thus, what I think you're paying for when you get a Busse or kin (would love to see more kin soon, TBH).

    I think that you have every right to be disappointed in the handle tubes not being pressed in fully. I personally had one knife come second hand that had a crooked tube i just put a metal rod through it and tweeked it straight then clamped it tight with a vice and 2 ball bearings. I understand that you shouldn't have to do that yourself after paying full price for a new knife but it beats dealing with customs and the hassle of shipping
