    Im curious if to here are any HOGS here that can tell me what models were offered in less than .185" thick INFI.

    I know theres at the very least the thin NICK, but are there others? I'd like to get ahead of the curve and find some blades for my kids that aren't too beefy.

    I'm working right now so don't have time to do much research. Also asking for a friend.

    Thanks!

    Its .21 thick so over your limit, but the nano fusion badger attack feels very thin and slicey.

    Game Wardens came in a variety of thicknesses, down to .140".
    AMS and MSe were under .180 too.

    NFNO is the same thickness, but the grind/ geometry is such at it slices much better than previous Busse's I'e had; otherwise, the Park Ranger and the Flack Jak were thinner than average, I think... and very likely the new offering too

    Park Ranger!! It's .145 and the ergos are pretty great. Even thinner than the AMS at .155. The Bony Active duty should be .125 but it's also harder so it's kind of a different tool. I don't have one.

    MMMS/Mini Mean Street is serious thINFI! Just got one recently and definitely thinner than my old AMS (destroyed in house fire so cannot directly compare). If memory serves it is <.170. Full flat grind, too, so it slices like mad!

    Just looked up the Bossman's specs upon release and MMS = .145!
    I like it better in every way than my old AMS, which I liked a lot in and of itself.

    Also, if you're looking for something a little bigger the CG Bushwacker Mistress is I believe the thinest Battle Mistress at .187.

    The Skinny Ash and the Sarquatch are also both .187 ish.

    One version of the skeleton key is really thin as well.
