Hello all! I've got a Basic #7 and I'm trying to decide whether to get a #5 or #9 -and don't say both! I was thinking that the #5 would be great for a little hike where I don't want to freak anyone out. The #9 looks great, but the fact of the matter is I've got a custom khukri coming which will out-chop any of the Busse line. That's not an insult, that's just a fact. I haven't found a knife that can out chop a khurki yet. So, the question is do I go with the practical #5 or the emotional #9? Thanks in advance. ------------------ "Better to reign in Hell, than serve in Heav'n" John Milton There are only two types of people; those who understand this, and those who think they do.
