    I like them thick too... We always did the slicing testing just before lunch... One thing about that knife, it will cut any thickness your hand is steady enough to handle...

    Anybody here tested these to fit in Combat Master Long sheath? Seems a bit thick to work well, but who knows...

    Just checked for ya with a comp finish.
    Too thick AND too tall. Won't work with the factory insert.
    However:
    I took the insert out and it can slip into the nylon sheath... So if you have a custom insert made, it might work in the nylon body.

    I was about to try that, then I decided to go with survival sheath systems. I figured for a little more I’d get one that fit and made to my specs. I told him what I wanted and I was told that it would be about 2 weeks.

    Mine arrived today. Silver and black canvas. I am still not convinced it isn’t black G10, it’s the smoothest and darkest black canvas I’ve seen on a Bussekin.

    Well it took forever to get here but very much worth it, I chopped up what small pieces of wood I have
    and sliced some paper no problem, I will put some tomato on the supply list.

    I have been fondling mine... haven’t gotten a chance to chop anything yet.
    Next is trying it out on kitchen duty.

    wasn’t sure about the thickness initially, but with the newfangled knife geometry, I’m starting to warm to it! :thumbsup:

    I remember stating that I hoped the next knife would be stout enough for batoning but sharp enough to thinly slice a tomato; you folks certainly brought it!:thumbsup::thumbsup:

    After seeing all y’all’s pics I’m sorta kicking myself for not getting swamp comp. Gorgeous! But with all the mud, blood, and brackish swamp water it’ll see I felt I had to go coated.
    The grind on this beast is bad ass! Only had it a week, but it’s cut trails, killed, skinned and butchered several wild hogs. Stropped it just once on the top of my truck window and it’s still hair popping sharp.
    Heck, maybe a guy should have both coated and uncoated? Lol

    After much deliberation on finish/handle I just re-ordered the same knife. Muddy/tan canvas. Yeah, I chickened out on the comp finish again lol. But seriously, This is the One! More I use it, more I like it. When you find perfection, get a spare if you can!
