    Considering there’s no mention of a thanksgiving/Black Friday Ganza. I’m guessing this might be it. I think the FHG reminded everyone of how comfy those Rats can be. Maybe we will see some more old faves in Infi?

    I think if we all stop guessing Jerry will be forced to just tell us.... my lips are sealed until we hear anything.

    Who am I kidding??? I can’t stop trying to solve a good riddle for the life of me now...

    What if this spelled the end of INFI? OpeRATion eRATication could possibly mean that INFI was being eradicated, with only Busse Battle Grade SR-101 offerings from this point forward. Swamp Rat and Scrap Yard would also get their share of SR-101 offerings.

    Standardizing on one steel makes a lot of sense. The price for all knives leaving the shop would be significantly cheaper, perhaps even half the price... yet have most of the performance of INFI. This I am sure would allow Busse to reach an even larger share of the market while still having extreme high quality products.

    If this were the case, it would explain Jerry’s prior remarks about wishing he could prepare us for what’s coming. This would be something nobody could be prepared for, as I am sure many here would consider it to be heresy. I for one would be all for this sort of change, assuming bare SR-101 was an option of course... have I mentioned I don’t like coatings?

    So let's see if I have this right ... Jerry kicked off 10 days and 280 posts of rampant speculation with no actual information?

    That's why I don't even bother to follow these kinds of posts. Happy to wait for a genuine announcement, mon ami.

    I don't think INFI is going anywhere. On the surface eRatication sounds like Swamprat may cease to be in it's current form and everything would be under one label with a brand new website or something.

    Edit: just went back and saw #38 and I guess this is not the case.

    Jerry is retiring. He now identifies as a Nutria.

    Thanks for everything!

    This is complete speculation.

    While I don’t like the sound of this, it could be cryptically referenced in Jerry’s second post (#38, page 2).

    Says the guy in post #285. :D;)

    I can't stop checking back in myself even though I know I should stop. I'm too invested now. But the next teaser thread Bossman releases...resinguy and I will be pointing and laughing at you suckers from the sidelines. :thumbsup:

    All three companies will have regular models in the store

    Scrap Yard still has a pile of unused 1095

    The Swamp and Busse will use SR101

    Infi on Special and very seldom new models only

    This is the same as when someone says “ I have something to talk to you about , I’ll tell you later”

    I’m gonna be hard pressed to be excited about the news as the lonnnnggg lead up created too big of expectations.

    unless it’s a hg35 or a edc dagger

    Danny moving to FL, setting up joint Swamp Rat and Scrapyard shop, Garth unleashing the full lineup plus crab shack north of the wall, Jerry opening distillery.

    Wasn't the black plague caused by rats? And we have black Friday coming up. I get the feeling this is going to be a pretty epic ganza.
