    Not quite impressive as that but I just used my NMSFNO to chop up 2x4s for a fire. Chopped about 6 into kindling, my buddy said that my edge must be "as dull as a dog's hind leg". I replied by shaving the hair on my arm.

    Just some good info from the past that shows Busse superiority. 80 hour HT with a 58 hour cryo. Explains the cost of Busse knives doesn't it

    To put that last post into perspective: I read it (above post) about a week ago, and since we were about to go camping, it hit home. So, I made it a point to count every cut made with my camp knife over a 2 day 2 night trip. Surprisingly, I only made 49 individual cuts. (that was rope, food, and kindling...we did use an axe though) At that rate, one could camp 56 times without sharpening his/her blade. THAT is unheard of. Seriously, even at twice the cut rate, it would be 28 trips with no deterioration of the edge.

    Count me in.... Busse is my next purchase.

    I use an SH E le, with joy and no regrets. I can trust on this knife and it's my favorite user. The one i carry as a stand alone knife. The strongest, until today.

    Busse used by the man himself to pull a car car crash victim out:!!!!-(Cool-pic)?highlight=satin+jack+accident

    And the Busse that stopped a .40 cal bullet:

    And while I'm sharing Busse war stories, I ran a (now complete) challenge on Busse blades to see what they could take. My favorite:

    Absolutely wailed on this knife, despite standing on the handle (you could feel the shock and pain through your boot) and having someone else hammer the tip we just could not get the knife to go the rest of the way through this seasoned maple. No dice. :(

    So a rescue attempt was mounted to try and free the now IMPOSSIBLY stuck knife. A task fitting for Arthur, we used wooden wedges instead.
    (be sure to view it ON youtube and read the description for more info)

    So what are the activities that can break an INFI Blade?

    So far I have seen psycho repeated 3# hammer pounding on the spine , and Wedging the blade into something and then applying huge lateral stress.

    I am talking about breaking a blade in 2.

    Just trying to understand what NOT To do , in excess at least, unless I really need to....:D

    The instances of people who grinded the edge thin and then the edge getting dinged from rough work do not count IMO.

    Busse Kin are the Swamp Rat & Scrap Yard knives as they are in the same family as a Busse. Same or similar processes with different but no less amazing steels.
