    The Dog Soldier isn't full tang? I've never seen one before. I had thought it was one solid chunk of Infi with the Resc wrapped around the handle like th BB13 that I had. I'm thinking about one in Midnight blue and black handles. I don't need a penetrating tip unless somehow the North Koreans were to invade and had power Armor or something lol. Ahh heck might as well get it.

    Desert sage, regular tip / SFC / Black handle.
    No doubt a keeper.
    Thanks for the responses.

    It's still got plenty of tang, but they aren't considered "full" tangs because they aren't the full width of the handle, they're enclosed in it. I think most would call it a partial or stick tang.

    Bronze with black. Can't wait to do a side by side test with this and the hogb8. Love the hogb8s beastly thickness but love the look and design of ds8.

    CF + black. That decision was a no brainer for me.
    And yeah, this is almost a TGLB blade (yes, different tang) with a very comfy handle so it has a much higher chance to actually see some hard use in the forests!
    Now the wait...

    Just put my order in this morning for black and muddy blade. I'm surprised I was still able to. This will be my first direct INFI purchase...woo hoo!

    The absolute worst case scenario is you sell a Busse and get your investment back not a bad, not bad at all. :cool:

    So as long as you got the penetrator tip option, that hole should be easy :p

    (and yes, I need the same hole)

    Tan and comp, no doubt. P-tip or not? One of each.

    Only thing I was disappointed with, I tried to order these sterile and was told that wasn't a option.

    I figured what the hell, I'll just beat the logo off them :eek: :D
