    Sorry Debbie no Mercedes this year.

    Got mine. Comp with black canvas. I hope that black canvas is that nice dark black canvas that has been coming out of the shop lately. Or should i change it to black G10? Shoot.

    My, how my tastes change over time...I'm on the fence over thickness...LMAO says the Off Duty lover...! :eek::D
    .25"-.27" thick and I'd have crashed the server all by myself!

    Mebbe it'll work on this porky fella too vvv ...lol :D

    I'm looking to take delivery of this bad boy in mid to late June. Based on the turnaround time of the Alpha Dog 6, we're looking at 3 weeks between order and delivery

    Yea that timeframe is what is making me miss it. We just arrived back Stateside on Sunday and already having to buy furniture, washer and dryer since lost ours in Hurricane Maria. Then have to go to TX and drive back with all my toys and live in a hotel for a month before our house on base is ready! Sucks, but very glad to be back on the mainland

    THAT's a quick invoice! They still have all the models up on their web site, and I haven't even seen a "last call" on anything yet.

    I know right?
    I'm so conflicted about getting another one. I'm thinking the TR is gonna be the next highly desired Busse, just like the TGLB or the FBM.

    Of course being low on funds makes that decision much easier :)

    Just got an invoice as well. An invoice a week before Blade Show on a knife that won’t be here before Blade Show. Definitely not ideal timing.

    This gradually increasing fulfillment rate (since the forsaken steel heart) is very exciting. I think this is the quickest one yet. I likey. Thanks for all the hard work over there in Ohio :thumbsup::D:D:D

    The Competition Finish version is no longer on the website. Others can't have much longer.

    Comp went real quick and now dc is still hanging in there. This is when I start reconsidering my choices but when I take another long look at the first long vertical pic, maroon w big dc, I relax:D. And knowing it’ll be in hand real soon:cool:. Makes me happy I caught the Busse bug:eek::eek::eek:
