I paid late, so Im guessing I could have gotten bumped to the back of the line for that, but I think thats fair and would be super happy if I didnt. Im sure that they could have sent it to the next paying customer to keep the line moving, and Im ok with that.
Sorry for paying late Jerry.

This feels like when I was a 9 year old, just before falling asleep the night before Xmas.:p

My combat grade black shadow camo tan micarta FSH is due to arrive Monday. Got the shipping confirmation earlier. I ordered right after they went live, probably in the first 10 minutes. Got charged on the 17th.. so, soon it is.

My "order status" shows that I ordered at 9:01 p.m., so I'm STILL listed as "awaiting fulfillment".:confused:

Wish Busse would ship based on who put in the order first. Those that order within 5 minutes will get their orders shipped first regardless on what kind of coatings/handles.

"Your order number is: 65324"

Does that mean Busse Combat Knives company has done over 65,000 orders up to this day?

Looks like I got trampled anyways because my order came about 800 after this...I ordered a comp nuke tan and it came in at 9:23 and I thought I might had done ok...:rolleyes::D

Well, I'm fiending for this blade as well, and my order was at 9:05, but realistically things have to be done in batches, and there are very few things in life that I have as much faith in as the fact that a Busse blade I order will eventually get to me. Even if it does have to pass through a two week time vortex. :)

hmm... while quite simplified it could be that the batches are made per handle type/ color and blade coating combos, with the Competition finish, nuked, hand shaped etc being placed somewhere in this line up too. I imagine there are a lot of combinations potentially resulting in batches of varying sizes to produce. And they couldproduce them in an order they feel is appropriate for their protocol.
However, Basing shipping on when the order is placed is not too far fetched if they were to get so many of each coating/ handle combos in a row first then produce those batches that way or something like that. Ultimately, I don't really know and am probably wrong lol.
But what I do know is that everyone that had their payment processed is getting a knife that is going to be bada$$ no matter when it ships. Long live the Steel Heart

This makes a lot of sense. I ordered a combat grade with g10. I ordered within the first 15 minutes. I'm sure the nuked and hand shaped options take more time to produce. I considered a nuked but didn't go for it because the fuller made the blade too busy for my tastes.

Shipping notice for Monday 1/28:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup: Specs didn’t include measurement for ‘blade width at widest point’.:eek:Anybody know what it might be?...or suggestions for a temporary ballistic sheath til I order Kydex ?
Btw, I got dinged for the Urgent Fury on Nov. 14th more than two months ago and still no ship notice. Anybody else get charged, STILL awaiting shipment still on UF? It’s a satin finish so I’m sure it takes longer than a coated...but TWO months?!:confused:

I got my Satin and Maroon Canvas Urgent Fury today. It probably won't be much longer for yours.

Still no shipping notice on my Forsaken Steel Hearts.

I agree about the ‘busy’ look of the nuke fuller because the two big CBT ‘fullers’ are enough. (plus we save $110.) Felt the same about the Forsaken Mistress...passed on the nuke fuller
