    Dingy, if you look at some of the pics I have posted in this thread, you will see that the majority of them are bended far past 70 degrees. The site I linked is an old, dead site. For some reason, no one seems to have the original performance videos. Trust me, I have dug deep. Maybe we will get lucky and one of the older hogs will have them, and more importantly, be willing to share with the eager piglets (which I highly doubt~!).

    Thanks for commenting, and for reading. Enjoy!

    This one is actually a brand new thread. I just so happened to come across it.
    There is many more, but I dont want to trun this into a "what crap do people have to say about Busse" thread.

    I haven`t checked all the links yet, but did you have Chris Janowski`s peice that he wrote for American Survival Guide magazine years ago. He had a series of about 20 stress tests he came up with over the years. This was before INFI, but he was stating that the SH2 was his #1 choice for a fixed blade and the Benchmade afck was his #1 for a folder.Both came through all test with flying colors.

    It made Lynn Thompson so pissed off that he sent Chris one of everything they were selling at the time. Chris said that by the time he was 1/2 way through his stress tests all he had was a big box of broken knives. Doing your tests at -40F does evil things to steel that hasn`t been cryoed.

    I have put my DFLE through hell and back and its one of if not my all time favorite chooppers. My favorite little Busse has to be my old school AD as it just take abuse again and again.

    this is a good thread:thumbup:

    The post doesn't say a 3 inch blade. The 3 is the 3rd test in a list of 7.

    Swamp Rat D2 torture test text and pictures are included on the following page:

    As was noted, heat treat is an incredibly significant and usually overlooked part of knifemaking. Bussekin manufacturing has mastered it due in no small part to the extensive R&D Jerry has done. Steel is the bones of the blade, but heat treat is its soul.

    I was looking for that one, thanks.

    D2 is supposed to be a very brittle high hardness tool steel. Its amazing to see how they (the swamp) made it ductile.
