    @Chris A and @ScoMa, thank you. Selling isn't really my intention, but I didn't want to go against any of the rules.

    Best of luck everyone!

    The reason behind asking value not being allowed is because there is a 90% chance this person has this item, wants to sell it, and asks its value as a back door to sell here. The reason why membership is required to sell here is because you pay for a membership so your information is known by the mods. By running the forum like this, there is a low chance at Nigerian princes coming here selling $3000 ultra rare 1 of 10 made blades with mastodon tooth.

    At first I did not understand why they wanted us to pay for a membership to have full interaction here, especially messaging, but after it finally hit me, I find it a brilliant system and tip my hat to the mods by running their forum this way... I still have the lowest level membership only because I will start buying and selling more and will be divorced in no time flat! Lol

    Here's what's great about dings. I too was new to Busse after watching Dexter about 6 weeks ago and fell in love with the Hell Razor which I do believe was in that episode. I went to Busse site, saw the HR2 but also saw that it could take 32 weeks to get. I am no stranger to waiting.... I waited 4 years for a custom Wilson Combat 1911. I wasn't gonna wait that long for a knife though. I went to ebay and bid on an HR2 for $800. That was over $300 msrp. Luckily, I guess, I was outbid and the guy got $850 for it. I found this forum and they told me to just order it online. I ordered it on a Monday, it was "dinged, the next morning, and in my wife's hands by Wednesday. Unfortunately I no longer have that HR2. Shes not getting her hands on this grab bag though... I found a loophole to wife intercepted packages with Busse. Lol

    We all learn how to get those mailed knives past our women.

    I take the safe route and secure permission before asking for the funds.

    My issue was that I was not asking for funds. I sold a 50bmg, contributed 80% to the boss and planned to replace a toy i haven't used in the 6 years I owned it with another that I could use.

    I always let the lady know when I grab a grab bag or shop credits. I just do so in a way that steers the conversation in a desirable direction. Far, far away from thoughts like “How many did you get?” or “How much was it?”

    I cleverly counter her, "another knife?" with, "another purse?"...she acknowledges the stalemate and we go about our business. It's a good marriage.

    Oh my... I just noticed Trough Raiders are $657... same value as a $500 grab bag. I wouldn't be upset with one.

    Mine just arrived today. I ordered 2 500 grab bags hoping to get something I could have for a good user and in that respect, I think got exactly what I wanted. It may not be what I wanted on model (not sure what I really wanted in that respect anyway), but I think I got 3 great users and one that I will put up...I don't think I could bring myself to hurt the coating on the one.

    Edit:
    Sorry, the whole reason I even made a post...The package was marked to require a signature, but UPS just left it on the porch and left. They did not require a signature. A driver told me a few days ago they have to sign for the packages due to covid restrictions. He also told me they had to talk to us and let us know that a package required signing. They did NOT do that this time and didn't knock or ring the door bell. -- Just a heads up, no idea if it is like that everywhere or just around here.

    Thank you, I am quite happy with them. I think I have figured out what 3 of them are, but still trying to get that second one in the first picture.

    Perfect, the specs line up exact! I checked through quite a few lists of the knives, but that one wasn't on any of the ones I checked. Thank you very much.

    Keep messing with that one and the one I think is a scrap yard trash 2.
