    In a few thousand years from now when you're family is riding high on the hog after the apocalypse, they will thank you for having bought quality.

    If this doesn't convince you.....nothing will.

    This is INFI. Look real close.....see any dents, dings, cracks or chips?

    I've touched the edge up once in 4 years with 800 grit after violently battoning, chopping, slicing and stabbing through steel pipes, frying pans, bulldozer exhausts, steel plates, crane engine gaurds and even a cell phone for good measure.

    I collected a bunch, haven't used much, just read a bunch of good stuff about INFI, at the beginning of summer I started using my NMFSH, it came BIG finish, but previous owner had Josh turn it satin, and made it razor sharp. After a summer of camp fires, a ton of battoning/chopping it will still shave some arm hair.

    The best proven warranty in the business. Excellent fit and finish. If you don't think so, go back two sentences and send it back. INFI holds a decent edge. Nothing to write home about, but nothing to sneer at either. Stable business model evident by long-term forum participation by the owner and employees. Open to feedback.

    I"ll add 1 more thing, with Busse unlike other stuff in life, I only regretted selling them. Never regretted buying one.I always find my self thinking "Man, even though it was tough for a min, im glad I got that TG14... or some to that effect).
    Plus if you get a descent deal, and knife doesn't do it for you, usually you can get most of Ur $$ back. YMMV

    Well, for me........it's one of those things where I feel like I am getting a very high quality product from a business that cares about its customers.

    I like their designs, I like that they stand behind their product. Their treatments on steel are superb. Some get stuck on INFI/other steels, but I don't when it comes out of Busse's shop.

    Their handles are generally comfortable, and there is a vibrant aftermarket for stuff like sheaths or that kind of stuff/services.

    Lots of people have their pet brands, especially in the knife world. Get one, try it out if you like the design. If you don't like it, well....it's not like you bought junk that can't be resold.

    Okay, I think I'm going to have to bight the bullet and order one. How does the order process work. I don't really see a page that list the different types of knifes offered. Any help would be appreciated since I'm about to be a newbie Busse owner. I know it can take a while to receive my knife. I just don't know what they offer. Thanks for all your help!

    Lots to consider,
    What are the details of tasks you want the knife to perform?
    EDC, Camping chores, Chopping or something in the middle. Just my 2 cents but the Ratmandu's are a great middle ground blade and available. Think of all the tasks you want your "first" Busse / Kin knife to accomplish. List them, post them and you will get plenty of input from the Hogs & Piglets.

    Always great seeing someone else who appreciates the aged bronze cerakote blades. They're some of my favorites!

    Agreed. I also just got an R9 and I think it's an awesome large blade. But the RMD is an awesome, awesome blade in the 5-6" range that won't cost an arm and a leg.

    Busse openly encourage extreme hard use of their knives. Their knives are designed for it, and they stand behind their warranty should one fail.
