    Great scores !! Congrats
    All the HC's are 154cm , I had some satin custom shop ones. So I had same question and the shop confirmed the 154cm.
    Great little knife and for normal knife duty it's a great steel with Busse heat treat even better :)

    Thanks for the clarification Dura. It is nice little knife and it's in my favorite size. Just didn't expect a 154CM blade to be worth that much even with a custom handle.

    Totally digging that CS Rat- grn/blk liners and it looks closely matched (L/R) from that spine shot too- those hybrid styles rock me nice!

    I already have a single busse blade in my posession and it's a BG AK. Guess what i got in my $500 bag? Yep - a BG AK, plus a coated something pulled out of the swamp. Literally the most disappointing scenario possible in what would be considered a fair business deal. The sole purpose I did the grab bag was to get a single busse model that all of you own and is impossible for me to get; what do they send me? The ONE knife anyone can go and buy straight from their website. YYYEEEAAA. To all those who don't like their satin PDs: Please get in touch with me!

    Oh, and yes, you can have it.

    How should anyone get ahold of you? I can't find that you have pm or email. I'd like an AK. Do you have a membership where you can sell here? My email is [email protected]

    That Hairy Carry is one of the best sized and designed blades that Busse has put out, IMO. I have heard from credible sources that the 154CM is one of the "best kept secrets" in the Busse world in terms of its performance. I have one, had 2, and now wish I had 2 still...

    And yes, it's a model that does not pop up much, I think because people who own them and use them keep them.

    What the other guys said. Spend a few bucks to up your membership, sell them, make your money back (plus probably a couple hundred more than your original investment), and use the money to buy something you want off the exchange. Easy peasy.

    Looks like amboyna burl (maybe curly oak?) inlaid into G-Rexed black and tan G10 with mosaic pins - I LOVE my Lil' Smokey!

    Also - aren't those MOFOs super awesome in hand?

    Congrats!

    Yes - what they all said, and since you can sell at a discount and still break even (if you so choose) it is super easy-peezy...

    There is literally no possible way from a rational perspective, based on what the grab bag disclaimer says, that anyone purchasing 1 or 8 can be disappointed. Sure we all get our hopes up, and if you step back and remember what you purchased, there is no way to rationalize disappointment - it is purely based on emotions, expectations and hopes that we all set up in our minds. You get exactly what you pay for: $800 worth of knives for $500 bucks, that's it...and whatever it is for the $250.

    I was happily able to pass along all the knives I got that I had no need of via the exchange, and they got a discount, and I made out good, meaning I just bought other knives!!!
