Anybody gotten dinged yet?
Nope. Looking forward to this release though. Second guessing my color choice now (sage/tan), but I'm sure once it's in hand I'll love it!
There are other blades that were announced before the Ratweiler that still haven't emerged so I imagine it's a while off yet.
I have been waiting five years for them to release the ratweiler but, this last ( 2 weeks) is killing me !!
I'm not crazy about the current tan micarta, period; but it might be okay once it darkens up some...at which point the tan on sage might look okay.
(I've got an RMD and MMD in that combo, and don't care for it; but I haven't done anything about the micarta, yet)
I opted for tan on tanker for the 1/4" model - not expecting to like it much; but for some reason, I couldn't bring myself to order the black blade. If I'm crazy about the knife, I can darken the scales and/or strip it. If not, I can always set it free.
(I hadn't received the RMD when I ordered the Ratweiler - I've got a couple of tan canvas handled rats, so I thought the MMD scales were a fluke. I don't know if they've changed the micarta, or my others got treated with something prior to my purchase, but the difference is significant)
Not yet.....hoping soon....came out right after the BS so they should start making their way out.... but who knows just happy to have one on the way.... been waiting yrs for a Ratweiler so a few months or so isn't to bad...lol
Can't wait for these bad boys to ship. Don't expect before Christmas though.
I've got, well, a sh**-ton, for me, of Bussekin blades ordered now. But I believe the Ratweiler is the one I'm looking forward to the most.
Come on!!!!! Please ding before Christmas! I want to open my presents with mine!!!
My mother in law would s#%t her pants if I did!
We still have some time before Christmas....I'm hoping so too....I have 3 others on order but I think this is the one I'm looking forward too the most.... getting psyched on what might be coming out this week too...Hahahahaha!
It really is one of the more attractive, in an angry aggressive sort of way, fixed blade knive extent. I am hoping for a ding yesterday so maybe it will be in time for Christmas. I have a TRASH and a American Flag Regulator already arrived but can only allow myself to keep one. I strongly doubt it would be anything but the Ratwieler.
I'm waiting patiently for once. I had a gen 1 before so I know the wait is worth it!!! So much knife for its size! I did order a thin one too just out of curiosity and a fat to keep.
I ordered thin only. Hoping I didn't make a mistake. But the difference in sliciness between my RMD and Rodent 6 is so remarkable that i had to have thin. Maybe I should have gotten a thick one, too.
Anybody? I'm dying here.
Yeah still nothing over here, either.
Got mine yesterday.
Then I woke up to the bitter reality that I haven't even received the billing notice, yet. The bright side of this is that it should be the next one I receive. (I jumped for one of each)
Was just about to say you lie. I think your right about it being close to next in line, will probably see some kinda movement in next 2 weeks. Don't think I'll regret going thin but wish woulda been like alot of youz and got both. It's the logical thing to do. I've never had one so don't know how the grind is on them. Can't stand having a tip be too thick that can't cut/penetrate well.
I didn't have the $$ to get both so went thin like you, worried about the rest of the grind being overly thick. This is also my first knife in this size-range, so there is uncertainty for me all the way around... but hoping I get that notice soon!
I am waiting on a thick No ding yet... I have a TM version of the 'weiler from a couple of years ago and that is thin, so getting the thick was an easy choice for me.
