    This is really nice to hear.

    I like the knifes Busse puts out, but they have always been dull enough that I won't even really use them until I've sharpened them.

    For instance, my DS6 is still sitting in my garage because I have not had time to sharpen her up. Been carrying my 511.

    I also really like that black on black G10 (it's what I ordered). Glad I went that route. Considering sending it out for a satiniziation and zero degree convex. We shall see. I'm still on the hook for an INFI badger, so the A2TG might just have to sit in a holding pattern while I adjust what knives I have and what knives I am going to ditch.

    I went for Bruiser/silver on this one just because they always look nice and I don't have anything in that yet. Even the blue seems to be brighter lately and the blk and grn mic is looking really really sweet with the latest arrivals.

    OK, now that is bronze! Awesome! and look how black that mic is - wowzer!

    Yep, looks just as good as I hoped. FYI, I did hit both of those scales with a rag dampened with some mineral oil before the pic so they wouldn't be dry. The Hell Razor scales are tan micarta but they look super red now that they've aged some.

    Great to see how beautiful bronze looks, I got an SK and huck coming in bronze and will likely be ordering the dagger in bronze as well. It looks like metallic gold, I really like it. Not sure which scales it will look best with, right now Im going with tan mic, but the new red/black g10 looks promising

    Arrived today! The weight difference between the A2 and the LB is pretty significant.

    Well, still waiting.

    Got a delivery exception that a transportation accident had delayed my package. No estimate provided by the tracking number.

    Starting to get a little worried. This thing has now had 2 delivery date changes and I have a suspicion that UPS lost, damaged or destroyed my A2TG.

    Nice! Is that black g10 or black micarta?
    And I assume that is “desert bronze?”
  15. inkynate

    It is desert bronze and black micarta. As I noted to Leonardo above though, I did "cheat" and rub some mineral oil into the scales to darken them up.

    Bummer man, hope it turns up for you soon..., although I suspect your suspicion may be off-base. Have you considered that maybe your A2TG damaged or destroyed the UPS truck and then scurried off into the wilderness? :eek:

    I haven't even got a ding yet :(
    There's been no bruiser A2's yet, or bruiser anything at all - I bet that's the holdup

    I got dinged on a bruiser (and a few others) weeks ago. Still no shipping notice yet, though.
