    Sexy, indeed. She has nice curves.

    I do like clip points, but straight ones look better. On this FM the curves do all work together. One could imagine a variant with a bit of recurve in the edge, with the CBT following the edge curve. Even sexier.

    It's curious that the bottoms of the CBT grooves are smoother than the secondary bevel. No matter, passing on this one. Have way too many choppers, including the skinny NMFBM, which might be the Ur Chopper for me.

    I beg to differ.. there are certin things she loves my fat ash for.. with full flat it results in a pretty usable edge.. starting at .22 rather than .32 helps and after i get a convex it will be pretty good. maybe not an all round chefs knife but it will be very useful for some things..
    She is real excited to use it on our campouts an hikes where she can have a survival blade that functions well preping food..
    But hey...we shall see:D

    I do agree however...a "thin nick" blade shape would have been prefered..

    Perfect prep knife! The V8 could have lots of uses too. Buy away. Buy away.

    Actually at 2 inches wide and 0.22" thick, it would make an ok kitchen knife. The blade design is certainly better than any other large busse knife for that purpose. Overall, very similar to a heavy cleaver. My kitchen knives that I use most often are 0.1" thick and about 1 inch wide and flat ground. This thing is twice as thick but also twice as wide. So the actual blade grind is similar. It is heavy for cutting simple vegetables and stuff for sure. But it can easily do it if you have to. Kinda like Hunting antelope with a 300 win mag. Certainly overkill but it will get the job done.

    My first big fusion handled chopper was the BGFBM and it’s fantastic! I thought to myself “I need one of these in Infi”. I’m sooooo stoked for this! :D

    I'd use the nuclear one but I doubt I'll be able to snag one.

    OT question - any of you hogs have a blade in desert bronze / black canvas configuration? I think it could look very awesome for the Forsaken Mistress!

    I’d be interested to hear some of you hogs wax poetic about the predicted performance differences between the nuclear option and the regular. Which version would make the better user?

    I think the nuclear option will pack more of a whallop, with the handle treatment and fullers the weight distribution will be more tip heavy than the combat grade I think. That would make it behave more like a chopper than the CG despite the generous clip removing all that metal from the tip end. Or maybe both versions have the same balance point and the nuke is just lighter, which imo would make it a straight upgrade.
