    Man, I can not stop drooling over that BT4 Variant. So thin and slicey looking. I had a chance to handle one of your Outdoorsmans today (thanks again!). That too is an incredible blade. It felt great in hand. You're killing me Ban... KILLING ME! :D

    Just spend quite a while drooling.

    So glad there is one place where I can look at all the goodies!

    great looking work, as always.

    I'd like to hear more about the Outdoorsman and the Clever, so specs and whatever other details you're willing to share when you have a minute?

    The Outdoorsman OAL is 8" with a 4" Blade. Made of 1/8" CPM-154. I do not recall the specs of the Cleaver other than it being 1/8" thick 440c full convex ground.

    I just recently joined blade forum after a good friend of mine turned me on to busse/bussekin. So naturally being a hog/dog/rat enthusiast I spent most of my time in those respective forums. That's when I stumbled across a thread posted by Norcalblacktail on satin finishes on a ratmandu and a convex edged waki(sick work by the way). I clicked on the link for this forum and am glad I did.
    It is apparent how much work you put into these knives Ban. It's inspiring to a younger blade enthusiast like myself to see such beautiful blades. Keep up the good work!:thumbup:

    Welcome abroad.

    Well if you're into Bussekin blades (most of us here are), check out the "Banned" editions. Frosty finish and mean convex edge!

    Mr. Pink,
    Thanks for posting those pics. That satin finish looks sexy on that Ruck, and there's nothing like a convex edge! That is impressive, Ban!

    Good to see you here Mark. Thanks for stopping by :thumbup: I still have the original Ruck that I worked on for you. The pic of the Ruck above belongs to Jaxx.
