    Ordered a TGLB from the shop today. Tanker gray blade with black/tan G10. 4 to 8 weeks from now I will find out what all the fuss is about. Can hardly wait! I've got Rats and Dogs......but this is my first Hog.

    Any pics....or tales of what you've done to your TGLB will help ease the pain of the wait!

    I'm thinking of snagging one also. Is it possible to get a lb with a saber or convex blade as opposed to shallow hollow?

    Only thing holding me back....

    I've just ordered a TG (not LB so it has a convex grind) from the custom shop so they probably have a stock of that if you can't find the LB version.

    Thanks again!! Looking forward to it!

    Yeah......I'm brilliant all right.......bills are due in a few weeks and I knew there was something going on with the brakes on the jeep, but I still drop $450 on a knife. I'm a freaking financial genius!! ;-)

    Last fall I was over on the Defensive Carry forum and saw where someone posted a link to the review of a TGLB by Shannon. After watching the video I did a little more research, saw a couple more of the videos, went to the Busse site and looked. Got sticker shock initially!!! Watched some more videos, did some more research, read some post on DC from a couple of guys who had Busses, and broke down and ordered a TGLB as my "first" Busse. Now, after less than a year from the first time I ever heard of Busse knives, I own 4!!! And want MORE!!!! It is impossible to own "just one".:D
