    Same, I am sure I will be one of the last... There was 4 or 5 of us waiting about 1-2 months longer than everyone else for our Grab Bags.

    I just keep telling myself Two more weeks. At least that will be accurate one day...

    How did all you guys get your leather sheaths already? Did you have to request that? I was never told they could be shipped with the knives... Don't want to have to wait another 6 months for just the sheaths but I also don't want to have to pay $20+ to get them mailed to me.

    Can you use shop credit on the sheaths? (the sheaths were technically ordered after the shop credit)

    yeah man, thats definitely NOT bronze, it's sage. also wth with the coating it looks rough around the spine. Looks like it was marbilized ( you spray down a havy coat of paint, hurry and lay saran wrap or thin mil drop plastic cloth and peel it off for a cool effect "

    i live way out in the boonies in the middle of a swamp so ups usually delivers around their ending time....got a knock on the door at 11AM today...hmm that cant possibly be my knife...

    ups driver changed up his route to get me the package because he saw it was coming from busse and hes a busse collector and apparently active on blade forums. Didnt get his screen name but hes been my ups guy for a long time and ive always liked him. like him even more now.

    My Park Ranger sheath was part of my Whiskey Warden order, purchased with shop credits. When they charged my credit card for the PR, I emailed Amy and asked that they ship the sheath with the PR. I don't know if the email was necessary, but the sheath came with the knife, and the only thing my credit card was charged for was the knife.

    That satin and blk/tan is the bomb man - Got lucky with the mill pattern, they seem to be really consistent. I want to hit it with the belt and smooth it up but it just looks so good I can't bring myself to do it on this one.

    What are you guys doing for sheaths? I’m thinking Mashed Cat for kydex and Rowe or Condo if I go the leather route.

    Really happy with this Park Ranger. Love the texture of the G10. Seems a little less slick than others. I almost didn’t order this because it had a little too much belly in the original pics but it appears they narrowed the blade profile just enough. Great knife.

    I got my two Kydex sheaths from Mr. Brown in less than a week he must be super busy. The Strata looks really good with the tan and black G-10. And if I thought about I would of asked for blue carbon fiber for my Bruiser but this one is excellent.

    Recieved my satin black/tan two days earlier than UPS tracking original estimate. The g10 matches up perfectly to the contours of the steel. There is zero feel on the transition from the g10 to steel. The blend is perfectly smooth, no raised edges and no sharp edges. If I hold the knife and close my eyes and I can’t feel on the handle where the g10 starts and where the steel ends.

    My knife did not have a sharpen by name, there was only the cut up busse sharpness test paper cut up to shreds. The edge is properly sharp and I see no need to break out my wicked edge for a long time.

    This is my first busse and I feel I made a good purchase, the fit, finish and quality are better than I hoped for. Many of the designs offered are way too large for my use but the PR is a perfect size for me to actually carry and want to use. It was a little smaller than I thought it would be, and that is a very good surprise. Hard to judge a size from a picture.
