    Impressive! Why does it look...layered?

    Doc, are you referring to the mini-CBT grooves? They can add a layered looking effect...

    Aren't those the marks left by a CNC machine?

    Actually that's an interesting idea. Can CNC grooves perform the same function (on a smaller scale) as CBTs? If they do it would make sense to not grind them off during finishing as they would have a practical value.

    I'd say it couldn't hurt...but I just like the way they look. Some may argue they serve no purpose and possibly harbor rust or other nasty stuff...I don't care...I like em! :)

    Yep - and that's kinda what I thought, but it does look markedly finer here than the CBT stuff I've seen before. The effect is really in keeping with the kriss idea, looks a bit like the damascus-like pattern of a traditional forged kriss blade.

    I dont know how I feel about the whole folder idea.. before you all light your torches an grab your pitch forks hear me out.. Im sure it would be bad ass..but busse has built their name around claims that their blades have proven to near perfection.. a folder would face living up to that weather it wanted to or not, no matter how much Jerry explains that a mechanical hinge can NEVER have the strength of one continuous length of steel.
    We did somthing similar in our business once an wont do it again.. this is just my opinion but I think it runs the risk of a damaging your track record when you go outside your proven recipe..

    If anyone could do it..its Jerry.
    Maybe it's just that I'm not much of a folder guy.

    If Demko can make amazing folders, I'm sure Busse can too.

    I've heard rumors of things about things that can do things.

    This thread is about the Kris P bacon though. I have a Kris folder. However I don't have a Kris fixed blade. Maybe I can change that soon.

    We've all seen some things..... Maybe we should just leave it at that
    Sure would like some bacon though. Just krisp on the edges though.

    I am going to have to pass, I got the lecture when that beautiful FMV8 showed up at the door. I dread what would happen if a dagger for sacrificing goats or something showed up lol.
