    I handled the folder that Jerry had at the Blade show.....2015? It was very solid , and smooth opening. However, I doubt he will offer them up any time soon, as they would have to be quite expensive.

    Tom, you seem to have your year off by a decade or so??? ROFL!

    I know hogs supposedly have thick sculls, but let’s just all try to comprehend the idea that Busse Combat makes fixed blades for a reason!

    R/G, I referenced MY handling of the folder in 2015, regardless of when Jerry first built it. I know that there were pictures of Jaxx holding it as well.
    By the way, it's "thick sKulls", not "sculls" as you spelled it.:rolleyes:

    Sorry, English is my fifth language that I've studied and more often that I'd like I do misspell words... :oops:

    Yes, there are a few out there with SAR3 blades done by another maker. Each SAR was a full knife, sacrificed to make the folder. Benchmade frame IIRC, forget the model.

    As for the "4.4 inch folding combat knife", Busse didn't, but without a pic, I can't tell ya anything like if a custom maker used a Busse for the blade. There are a few customs made from Busse knives out there, automatics too. Matt Cucchiara once killed a Badger to make a custom flipper for a HOG here... :) (ABAIII if I recall correctly)

    The 2015 prototype folder is badazz! I did try to snake a pic in front of Jerry that Saturday night lol
    He asked what I was doing, lol I said "What dafuq do you think I'm doing? I'm a mod on yer forum I'm getting a snap to post!" Lmao, denied! :(:DEvidence still exists of the previous proto...which has nothing on the 2015 version :thumbsup:

    Same here, even though I can't EDC a TGLB like you do, bro. ;)

    Still, I stopped carrying folders except for the rare occasion. It's now a neck knife 95% of the time for my EDC.

    Congrats! I thought many times about having a neck sheath made for the ULBC. Super handy little take on the Ray Mears style of knife.

    I do know one thing. If I were a folding knife maker I'd be buying up CG BB13's like they were going out of style. A guy could make quite a few pocketknife size blades out of one of those and the price per inch of INFI is rediculously cheap.

    I would LOVE a Busse folder... :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    While there are only minor legal restrictions on carrying a fixed blade here in SoCal where I live, if you do your going to get hassled all the time.

    Yep, I remember that one. I've seen a few proto's over the years. t
    There were some rare pics floating around years ago but I'm sure those are long gone. (not from the Blade Proto)
