    I'm thinking black canvas. They have been soaked and scrubbed. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. 47996774003_bbafa878e2_z.jpg 47996779047_8f754d6c1f_z.jpg 47996779077_d9bc657c76_z.jpg

    If I was a betting man, which I'm not, my money is on canvas - All the linen I've seen is composed of very fine threading- that appears to be quite coarse eh?
    I'm with you on the guess- cleans up quite nicely!

    Yes, I was thinking the structure looked quite coarse also.

    Canvas would be my guess. I wish that Busse offered linen micarta handles.

    Yeah, it's a BAIII.

    This one seems to be solved. Thanks everyone for your input.

    Linen micarta was used at times in the past on Busse knives, especially green, some black, some tigerhide (not all, some of it was canvas), and a very limited brown/black; there might have been some other limited versions of linen micarta, but not that I remember.

    I too wish Jerry would make linen micarta an option again; the colors seem so vivid.

    I was going to ask if Busseco had ever used linen, I thought they had...many moons ago
