    Thanks buddy - you sealed the deal because a lot of those same thoughts have went through my head on this one. There is are too many things going on with it not to be intrigued. @Garth Reckner Hey, maybe you could swing by, take a spin around the block and talk about it? LOL!
    I'll let you drive my new mower I just brought home last night` putting an air ride seat on it now :D

    I don’t think I’ve ever had such indecision on a Busse blade. I’m leaning towards in!

    Ok, the fact that it is more of a chopper probably just sold me on it. I have no use for fighters, but plenty of use for choppers.

    Many radically awesome design aspects here, but in the end it’s the coffin handle that’s going to get me. Wish it was on more models.:thumbsup:

    COATED UP FIRST!
    GOT MY COMP FINISH WITH BLACK G10
    Although I must say, the big dc finish looks amazing on a big blade, and Im not really a fan of it generally but it looks darn good on the trough raider.

    I was going back and forth, if I still had credit Id get both, but black g10 felt most right here. I have a black and red nuke forsaken mistress in red/black, and I got a matching forsaken steel heart in black red, so my fashion sense chose the black option:confused::confused::cool::cool::thumbsup::thumbsup::D:D:D

    In with black g10 comp finish. Decided to go straight blade tan and black for a consistent feel and any other design to be simple black.

    Damn you Jack.. Aye aye.

    Forest green with tan canvas.
    If I like her, I’ll keep her.

    It’s almost as if this knife “Raided” the shop for other designs.
    Recurve from the Knight? Check
    Clip point from the Mistress? Check
    Fuller from Gemini’s? Check
    Coffin from the Shark? Check
    Tank spine from the WarTrain? Check

    Throw in a choil and double guard and you’ve got a one of a kind treasure find.

    Well Garth has persuaded me towards it, I was on the fence. Now to see what knives to sell. It seems I only buy folders nowadays to have something to sell later when needed for Busses lol. I am thinking Maroon and Forest green would look sick on this perhaps.

    It was the post by Garth that pushed me off the fence and on to the Busse order page :)

    Actually it was Garths post and this one as well, the thought of a Buy Brown exposed spine sheath to keep her warm ;)

    I wish we could still get black paper micarta handles. I guess CF with black G10 will have to do!
