I handled the folder that Jerry had at the Blade show.....2015? It was very solid , and smooth opening. However, I doubt he will offer them up any time soon, as they would have to be quite expensive.

Tom, you seem to have your year off by a decade or so??? ROFL!

I know hogs supposedly have thick sculls, but let’s just all try to comprehend the idea that Busse Combat makes fixed blades for a reason!

There’ve been several fixed blade Busses converted to folders shown here over the years. Judging by the logo, ricasso and talon hole, I would guess this is probably one of them, or a similar conversion. Who knows though?

Based on the background, I'll bet Knife Hunter knows.

Also this:

What do you mean in the absence of a Busse folder?:D

I love mine:cool:

My busse is better than my tickets but its still not a REAL busse folder.

If I had won I'd buy you all enough beer to wish I hadn't

R/G, I referenced MY handling of the folder in 2015, regardless of when Jerry first built it. I know that there were pictures of Jaxx holding it as well.
By the way, it's "thick sKulls", not "sculls" as you spelled it.:rolleyes:

Someone might have had that one made from a SAR blade maybe?



Either way, we needs one don't we! ;):D:thumbsup::thumbsup:


.
Yes, there are a few out there with SAR3 blades done by another maker. Each SAR was a full knife, sacrificed to make the folder. Benchmade frame IIRC, forget the model.

As for the "4.4 inch folding combat knife", Busse didn't, but without a pic, I can't tell ya anything like if a custom maker used a Busse for the blade. There are a few customs made from Busse knives out there, automatics too. Matt Cucchiara once killed a Badger to make a custom flipper for a HOG here... :) (ABAIII if I recall correctly)

I do know one thing. If I were a folding knife maker I'd be buying up CG BB13's like they were going out of style. A guy could make quite a few pocketknife size blades out of one of those and the price per inch of INFI is rediculously cheap.

I would LOVE a Busse folder... :thumbsup::thumbsup:

While there are only minor legal restrictions on carrying a fixed blade here in SoCal where I live, if you do your going to get hassled all the time.

Yep, I remember that one. I've seen a few proto's over the years. t
There were some rare pics floating around years ago but I'm sure those are long gone. (not from the Blade Proto)

:D:D
