How common are Sarge 4's on this forum? I might want to get one but would prefer to wait a while. Will i be able to find one later? (i have never bought a busse so i have no idea)
Also do you people believe that the Sar 4 would make a good bushcrafting knife?

Thanks

Sar4's are thick, overkill if you see feather sticks and wooden spoons in your future. For bushcrafting you'd be better served by something with thinner stock. Not that a Sar4 can't do it, but there are other knives, like the CABSLE for instance, that can do it better.

Oh, and they are common, the company store sold a lot of them over the span of about a year give or take.

I would double it up with an esee izula... i just have always liked the look. How thick is the stock?

The AMS would probably be better for bushcraft duty. Only cuz of the .155 thick stock. A lot cheaper also

RMD is a fine choice! You won't be disappointed and you can buy several for the price of the SAR4.

I love the SAR 4. IMO one of the best do it all designs Busse has. I have had 3 of them and let them get away from me. I will get another as soon as I can.

The responses in this thread are surprising and not very HOG-like. Everyone knows the correct answer is that yes he should get a SAR4, but he should also get something thinner and shorter to piggyback with the SAR4.

But yes, a RMD is an excellent choice! I bought the current generation RMD when they were first released and have used it quite extensively. It is one of my favorite knives, period! And you could get a Scrapivore to piggyback with it! ;)
