    Mine arrived today - this may be my favorite Bussekin to date - I will get pictures but not happening tonight.
    Swamp Comp with black G10 and sheath. All top notch as you would expect, and almost as thick as my CS WTF!

    I will try again - sorry.

    Anyone who has received theirs have a decent scale and can give me a weight?

    thanks!

    All this Mega Swamp Warden buzz has successfully distracted me from the mega ratweiler. I forgot how excited I am for the Mega Rat. Mine is arriving tomorrow, and I feel like a kid at Christmas! I will be doing a little light testing and a photo shoot to share. I can’t wait!!!!!!

    I really like the finish and the grind. Great knife and a nice sheath as well.

    Notice the "Swamp-Nuke" treatment - I like the rounded edges.

    Ok. It's on. Get out your Mega Rat and show some transparent slices of tomato, since we all know thick knives cannot slice.

    Crazy how well this thing works on ripe roma tomatoes -

    Great job, Swampies!

    Here are the weights in pics:
    https://imgur.com/gallery/ppO0zMz

    Forest green coated with tan Micarta:
    1.659 lb (1lb 10.5oz) or 754g

    Comp with Orange/Black G-10:
    1.687 lb (1lb 11oz) or 767g

    ** Removing the rust-preventing mega grease did NOT change the weight. (yes, I did a before and after)

    The Swamp's black canvas seems a lot blacker than I typically see from Busse. I mean, how much blacker could it be?



    Okay, black G10 is blacker, but for micarta....

    And in keeping with that theme, it's no exaggeration to say...
