    Arrived today! Very cool knife. I'm surprised how smooth the handle is. I had to learn how to use a TEK LOK but man, I LOVE it! It's a nice, slim, blade.. the coating surprised me, I didn't expect a thick white coating. I love how everything is in the right place. The handle feels comfortable any way that you grip it. I like the ergonomics a lot. The holes everywhere in it are interesting and cool - you could lash it to a stick and make a gnarly spear out of it! I thought it was kind of slim and skinny, then I look at the spine and whoah! It's pretty darn rugged. That shows how good the design and grind of it are. Feels featherweight because of the balance but it's pretty reasonably heavy. The handle is very smooth but also grippy. I don't think I'd get any hot spots from using this pretty hard.

    Now I've got to cut something with it!

    The sheath is tits awesome. I love the click when the knife snaps in.
    The tek lok is super secure and versitile. I'm carrying it handle-down, right side, blade forward. Still gotta figure that particular part out.

    After using it to cut through some apples, pepperoni, and cheese (hard use amirite?) I have to say that this is suuuuper well designed. It really shows what a thoughtful design can accomplish. The handle shape, the crook at the end, acts like a lever to really slice through, gives a lot of cutting power. The full flat grind slices great despite the relatively thick blade stock. Super duper enjoyable to use. I really like the very acute point on the tip too.

    watch out they can be addicting ,,I had over a 100 busses at one time ,,sold most of them have around 8 to 10 left that are just plan keepers . I just got tired of now new designs ,Jerry just kept on flooding the market with remakes and started using sr101 steel , and I said fuck this and started a Medford collection which is a well made knife BTW just poor on the secondary market ,which I did lose my shirt on ,,but hey ,,Live and learn

    What's SR101? I heard a lot of frustration about the re-release of limited knives and stuff, is that about right?
    Over 100 Busses? Wow! I may end up with a few, we'll surely see in time!
    I have a pretty solid fixed blade collection now (modest though it may be)... but man, I love it!
    I'll have to look at some Medfords, they seem pretty cool but I never thought were my style.

    Yes re-released older blades with a new twist sometimes ..
    Sr101 is the type of steel Swamp-rats use which is an off shoot from Busse's which were famous for their infi steel which is what you have now and they do good in the secondary market even used,,as for medfords they are a tank of a knife but if you buy make sure it's what you like ,,resale sucks

    I've heard on INFI, it's the Busse claim to fame.

    Okay so this knife is amazing. It does everything well, it's a little scary. I'm going to use the handle design as inspiration as I finish up my large bowie thing.
