    This one is made of .140 thick INFI at the thickest point. Full height flat grind with distal taper. Black Canvas micarta handles. I envisioned carver, fillet, and food prep knife with a bad attitude while bringing this one to reality. Yes, the INFI is not a typo. Can anyone guess what this use to be?

    One of my first few Busse Mods.

    Originally about .200" thick which was then satin'd and thinned down to my liking.

    Wow! Was about to ask what you did to Jerry to let you use some INFI and then it hit me LOL. Great job, absolutely stunning. I had this idea a while ago, but to turn it in to a folder. Make the knife community lose its mind haha. I just love INFI, wish I could have it clipped to my pocket one day.

    Apparently a lot of work went into that transformation.
