What an amazing first Busse! My first Busse from Wauseon was the Last Rites. It's another cool one!
Thanks WC! Satin w/convex edge is definitely my favorite combination for a blade. I was pretty surprised at how lucky I was to get one. Beginner's luck I suppose. I've missed out on a few since, but no regrets. The Last Rites looks awesome and should be another "gateway" knife to the Busse & Kin habit.
Oh, I know. I think my Bussekin collection is a bit over-the-top. I had maybe 10 or so that I'd bought on the exchange by the time the Last Rites arrived and I've kept buying at an insane pace. Busse is just too cool!
For instance, here are most of my Resi-C blades.
Awesome Collection in such a short time.
I was thinking the same thing - it's a really nice first one!
That's a nice group of Res-C knives!
My first Busse in late 2001 was a Basic 9, and I fell in love with those amazing grips. I was able to get a set of the original Basics (3, 5, 7 & 9) before they disappeared (along with some extras ).
I still "need" a B3 and a B9 although for practical purposes I've got all the bases covered a few times over.
Your B10LE has virtually the same blade length as the B9s. (Many B9s were nearly 10” from handle to point.)
B9 may be a tad heavier @ .25” thick. Conversely, B10 may be a bit faster. And of course, the B9 has the old handle style. But those minor points aside, they’re very similar.
It's funny - it was years before I realized the B9 blade length is much closer to 10" (and a B9 was my first Busse in late 2001).
B8, 7 and 9. The B9 is much longer than the other two.
Brilliant!!! Worked great for me, too! Love it!!!
I think it looks good, too:
Thanks again Ptac!!!
Awesome! It definitely makes a difference
Yes those tennis grips are a plus.
The blade is so large and front heavy it makes sense to have a thicker grip
A replaceable wrap that has evolved over decades to be the most secure, comfortable grip possible under active hard use including repeated impacts.
Makes sense to me.
It looks like the steering wheel cover on my parents 1978 pinto wagon
I agree 100%. For me the Res-C grip is more than adequate on anything up through the B11/1113, but the blade weight of the BB13 is too much for that handle size. This wrap makes it much easier to control.
Interesting. I wonder if they ever thought about making bigger resC handles.
If they continue putting Res-C on these bigger blades, bigger handles would be a plus.
I think Boss Hogg listens so it may happen
