    But I know Jerry, Garth, & Busse Combat Crew could do it better! ;)

    even still, what a great adventure in Titanium!

    I couldn't stop watching....

    I've often though about how cool it would be to have a blade made of solid infi! Everything! Handles and all, from one solid piece of infi. No scales. No tube fasteners. Just textured grip infi handles! Would be sweeet right!?

    You guys think the Boss will ever do one .50"
    If my calculations are correct, that would be 12.7MM
    Still, a FAR CRY from 25MM lol.....

    It may be a safe bet...cause one thing's for sure >>> Busse would very likely NEVER have to replace a broke one of those made of solid INFI! :eek:

    That was cool to watch him make that - I'm not a fan of that texture, don't know what to call it with all the scallops, "flint look" maybe? But I can appreciate the great job he did on it, looked fantastic!
    I would have liked some factoids though like how much it weighed, the cost of a bar of Ti like that and his total time and cost in abrasives. Anyone know what he sold it for?
    Seems like it would ultimately be a poor choice of blade steel LOL! but that wasn't the point of it and that's the fun part of it- like who would think "this is a great idea"??? HAHA!

    So this 50 cal idea~ What should it be I wonder Hmmmmmm I like! I like!

    It was ridiculous to see that one-inch block of titanium...but I just kept on watching and watching and marveling at his skill with the grinders and the hand-work...and a hollow-grind besides...
    Really quite something for the record book...
