    So this "deep" dish hollow grind with thinner stock means not much of a deep chopper?....more of a combat/zombie knife?

    I’m in on the pricing. Now I need to go in the safe and get my Gemini’s out while I wait for the Ultra Light :D

    I agree :) I also had mine done in Comp finish but added coyote black g10. Both options weren’t even on the menu then :)

    That clip point sounds pretty awesome !! :)

    @duramax on the 2012 part (I fumbled the quote).

    Kind of late in the day for me to be doing actual math, but 3% inflation/yr over 7 yrs would make $337 = $414 in today’s dollars. FWIW.

    And @Brummie I’d love to see that clipped custom if you still have it (?). Sounds nice.

    This BIG DC coating costs the same as the Forsaken Gemini competition finish.

    Was it said somewhere that I missed how long before these start shipping?

    Would also be very interested to know this. Is it just an optical illusion or is the tang proud?

    I believe it was DC with Black and Tan g10.

    They certainly appear to be, which makes sense if the tang is also fully chamfered.

    Gotta admit, I'm not generally a fan of proud tangs or liners. Still tempted, especially since this drops on my b-day, but wish it had the standard flush scales, sabre grind, and the old fuller tbh.

    I think it is, but infi on this gem is melted down by nuclear so should blend nicely and dig in and hold on a tight grip.

    Looks awesome. Bring back tanker gray. I had a TGLB in tanker gray and sold it off foolishly years ago.

    The WayBack Machine says the base price for a TGLB when offered on the Busse website from 2013 to 2015 was $387.

    The handle was Tan and Black G10. The blade was uncoated, but it's hard to tell exactly what, although I think probably satin. My Daryl Dixon TGLB is Competition Finish with Tan and Black G10, which was about as close as you could get at the time.

    couple comp safe queens and One coated user. Cant decide on a color combo though.

    One thing is certain. The black with red and black g10 is damn gorgeous.

    I paid 387.00 plus the g-10 handles and shipping for a total of 450.00 for a combat grade TGLB back in 2014. My first Busse, I really like it to this day. Well I am in for at least one of these, maybe another one if I can bring myself to sell a couple Busses which I have only done once.
