    I love it. I am pretty sure the original Viking Seax's were made from broken swords. We know these were not.

    We have a winner!!! :cool::cool::cool: . . . Good eye!!! . . . That observation just won you a $100.00 Shop Credit good toward the purchase of a Viking Warship Prototype (As long as you get in quickly enough!!!)

    These are shorter Custom Shop Variants of the Forsaken Mistress and the balance is excellent!

    Congrats HOG!:cool:

    Let's Drink!:thumbsup::thumbsup:

    You would have figured you would have found many of these unsold models in the grab bags. This is a silly remark. Positive karma belongs in the Busse section. Please save it for your diary next time brother... its not my cup of tea either but I will let that be known by not purchasing one and not let my opinions effect others decisions.

    I am happy to see the Busse team experimenting with different finishing techniques. Its like when hillbilly223 started doing custom finishes like battle worn on $4000 Wilson Combat and Nighthawk 1911s. The 1911 fans were sick about it. Now its a rather popular option. Not my cup of tea either. Od rather shoot 100k rounds and holster it 1000 times for the same look.

    I too think these finishes will grow on the knife crowd as well. Its innovation... there's nothing worse than a stagnant economy. Kudos Jerry for having the balls to do something different.

    Hmmmm..... the fact that it’s a clipped Forsaken Mistress kinda makes me want one even more. And I DO LOVE the finishes. Both of them. I like the Ancient Bronze, or whatever it is called better, though. It would match a Rucki I got in a Ganzaa years ago...

    I’m hoping the fact these are “Prototypes” means they’ll come back even meaner (longer), and perhaps shinier.

    I’m more a traditionalist myself, I’ve only purchased a few knives from you guys (2013 meanstreet/mil overrun, urban grudge and TGULB). Point being, not many designs catch my eye, especially larger blades, but this seax version of the forsaken mistress has a historic aspect, and aesthetically makes me drool.

    Great job, I’ll be participating this ganza for the first time in 7 years, cheers!

    It really is the little things. I love when Busse takes an existing model. It’s given a tweak or two and a special variant model is born !!!! :) :)
    I think I’ll be trying for one :D:p:thumbsup:

    Now where’s that battle saw with 7” or so blade ;):p:p

    Or a Park ranger variant :D
