    Well, you certainly settled the issue on tiger hide canvas being a thing... I guess I wasn't around in that era so I should defer to those who were... but I'm still not convinced your F-16 is tiger hide. Have you ever seen tiger hide anything with green mixed w/ the tan/brown & black? I don't see anything green in your pics of those other blades at all, maybe I'm missing it but we can just leave this at agree to disagree I guess. Nice score either way.

    Yes. Also reddish. Seen bright yellow Tigerhide too. :):thumbsup:
    Just took this shot, it is a non- filtered shot in a warm light room.
    Handle has been wet with a damp towel. Since I post processed yesterday's pix, maybe I affected the colors when I adjusted the color temp. How's this?

    @Maggot Brain
    I totally forgot Jerry listed some of the possible combo's on the nuked in the OP- just "Tigerhide" lmao :D:oops: Finally went back to reread in full..
    You are correct on this not being the linen TH Jerry had listed. If this was your point, then apologies! I still think this is canvas TH on at least 1 g-10 layer , so maybe that unknown category...? :)
    Waiting for other examples to be hopefully posted, love it regardless :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I'm really struggling with Imgur tonight. Can someone tell me how to post photos from there nowadays?

    Was hoping for Tigerhide also haha, got what looks to be grey and black g10 on top of a thick toxic green liner, much like vegsmashed. I dig it!

    It appears the mysterious handles remain a mystery even after they have arrived. I’ll have my piece of the puzzle on Monday! Pics to follow.

    These look amazing!! I had a Rucki before, but found it to be too short for my liking. Since the specs for the F-16 were fairly similar to that of the Rucki, I had to pass. Figured I’d be better off keeping my powder dry for the next time Jerry decides to make a sword closer to 36” in length. After seeing all of your pics, there may be some regrets.

    The easiest way is to click on "get share links" when you originally upload the photo, and pick the third one down (that has the [img ] code).

    That isn't available from the gallery, though. But if you take the gallery address, e.g.: http://imgur.com/gallery/27m9juR

    And right click on the picture and click on "copy image link," you'll get this: https://i.imgur.com/YfPLxxS.jpeg

    Click on the picture icon at the top of the bladeforums textbox (between the smiley face and the film) and paste in the image link and click "insert," and you'll get this:

    This is probably the highest quality Busse I’ve seen in terms of symmetry and overall fit and finish. The F-16 is a game changer. Going out today to beat on it.

    All these handles look super cool. Definitely not what I was expecting, but very cool none the less. This goes to show that you always have to read the fine print.

    what hooked me was 92EC3FD3-2691-4679-AF2B-BAD9E4E7C866.jpeg B72C6BE7-C37A-4958-BB7B-1086D1128D89.jpeg I see a lot of F16’s arriving with the “PORKpourri” handle option. I’m interested to see some of the options listed above. Or will they all be porkpourri like the fine print may have hinted?

    The unknown can be scary. I think we will see a lot of unique one of a kind super cool F16’s. This is the most exciting gamble I’ve taken in my Busse knife buying career. I hope it pays off!!
