    You know there's no hope when instead of thinking "Oh that's a cool release!"

    Your first thoughts are "It's here."

    I'll flag it for sure, thanks! I have to be careful because if I get too involved no work gets done, which is why I watch shows I've seen a dozen or so times.

    Good luck on the new horizons! :)

    Especially easy now that the "hand smoothed" isn't really so much "hand" smoothed, as it is cut by the new machines with the much finer cutting head. Literally just a slightly different CNC program now.

    I always put a note to the shop to have Jerry do the last pass with 800 grit.

    I too love the TGLB fuller! I am almost glad the TGULB has a different fuller. It keeps the TGLB looking distinctly original. We can still say that’s a TGLB, at just a glance.
    Bring the pics!

    Boss, I'm talking about the fingerprint-like lines that can be seen in the newer handle scales, as discussed and shown in this thread. My last couple of hand-smoothed handles have also had these lines in them, similar to the Nuked Forsaken Mistress seen here (not my pic, or the greatest example, but the only one I could locate showing this on hand-smoothed):


    Thought you guys had made an in-line change of some sort. Not that it's bad, just different. Or maybe I've just been drinking too much? :eek:
    ETA - Apologies for going off topic. :oops:

    The super deep dish hollow ground bevel allows for superior chopping and slicing power in an ultra light weight platform!!!

    Oh hell, just when I thought I’d bought my last Busse of the year... In for 2 I suppose. Can’t wait!

    Last Bussekin for the year? It only mid-September. Perhaps so. But perhaps not.

    As for the fuller. pretty cool man. I recently picked up an ultra light camping trowel called the "deuce of spades v.2" which has a similar contouring and is super thin and rigid.

    Yeah, that's it for me for a while- unless that BG MOAB would happen then, I just lied again.

    While I most likely will buy this. The original tglb Fuller is the to which a Fuller should be measured by.

    I sure wouldn’t mind if it was an option on TGULB :D:D:) @Jerry Busse
