    I just purchased a 4.4" " Busse" folding combat knife. I bracketed Busse as upon follow up I don't see any on my search. Did I purchase a knock off? Or have they backed off to just fixed blades?

    Busse does not make folders, to my knowledge... I would love to see pics, though...

    The Rat Trap by Swamp Rat is the only production Busse folder.

    Rat trap and the Cubera are the only two Busse folders I am aware of. The first is more common and the later is an absolute epic score if you found one!

    Someone might have had that one made from a SAR blade maybe?



    Either way, we needs one don't we! ;):D:thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I probably stopped after a similar event asking advice but had the pleasure of listening to someone like you.

    Wow I have a crazy Idea now about taking one of my DC Park Rangers and seeing if it would fit between a Hinderer XM-24 frame and scale after grinding off the handle then milling holes for the bolts to fit. No I'm not going to do this though.

    I personally don't like folders and never understood the desire for a Busse folding knife but to each their own.
    Don't want to share the link and I know none of you would fall for these but have you guys seen this shit. They have a bunch of this knockoff crap.

    No problem. When someone asks, it is usually because they don't know and need help, regardless of how long they have been on here. Heck, I ask questions all the time and I have been here for a few years.

    There’ve been several fixed blade Busses converted to folders shown here over the years. Judging by the logo, ricasso and talon hole, I would guess this is probably one of them, or a similar conversion. Who knows though?
