    I'm glad I ordered mine when I did, as it DOES seem to be one of the rarer Busse models.

    I just really like clip point blades :) And the Pappy blade just made me think of the ASHBM
    :)

    I still think an 8” ASHBM would be excellent :)

    The other option: B8 with the "War Feather" Modification of Will York...Granted it's got the Res-C handle not Micarta.
