    An INFI ratweiler sounds great !!! I'd be INFI for at least a couple.

    So what's everyone's thoughts on finish ?
    Combat grade to keep cost down, option of stripping later ?
    B.I.G. Finish ?
    Comp Finish ? A favorite of mine, I use the one with most tool marks lol :)
    Satin Finish ?


    For me I'd like to see combat grade or comp finish. Keep the costs down = more knives :) lol

    I'd also wouldn't mind seeing a infidu comeback :)

    Satin finish would be cool.
    Not sure how the B.I.G. or Comp Finish would differ or what they are exactly.

    Although even in 'basic black' she's inspiring... :)

    I am a big fan of the design of the Ratweiler . I've always been surprised that it was not brought out in INFI as a Busse Combat knife rather than a Swamp Rat right from the start .
    I've wanted one for a long time and was so pissed after being away from here due to other large financial obligations , only to see that I had MISSED the new Ratweilers just before I came back .

    However .... TODAY I snagged one of the 3/16" models on the exchange ! I think an INFI Ratweiler would be be a winner for sure .

    But then it wouldn't be a RATweiler.

    As for recent trends, SR-101 has been overtaking the Busse Combat side, not the other way around. INFI is well-loved but SR-101 is a great steel and better value in its own right, so that's the way its going. But yeah man, I agree with you on the design, it's a gem!

    I was thinking about that the other day. We have seen a bunch of Busse Combat classics in SR101, but it would be great to see some more Swamp Rat classics in INFI besides the Ratmandu! I wonder how much Johnny Walker it would take to bribe Jerry to start cutting some blanks :p

    I'd tread lightly Andy, judging by the pics Him and his wife can have a knife in both hands, Or Elof has Four arms!! Either way... I guess you are lucky Australia is a big Country :D
    Oh wait !! Looks like you both live in Sydney! You still have time to move North. :)

    Both he and I can arrive at the "sand bar" wearing INFI armour and wielding INFI in each hand... a blood letting would soon be forgotten when the blade comparisons started....he does not frighten me...after all he has told me he loves me several time now... ;) ;)
