    Mean Street fatty proto. Approx. .30" thick.
    I have the satin finished one, the previous owner sent it to Reese Wieland for custom work.

    Hey Super Hog how are you?

    Do you have a knife to match each brand of beer you drink?

    Except for getting old I'm good Jaxx. But what my father always told me about getting old was that there wasn't a good option.

    I'm still riding bicycles a fair amount growing food in the summer at the place I actually live most of the year, and still with the same great woman for the past 17 years.

    I only had one hiccup accident about the time I disappeared from here.

    I believe the prototypes were still Infi

    Got it today, looks a little different than the ones posted earlier. Is this an apprentice or a proto? No Busse logo or markings. Its super thick and the grind is deep, whatever coating it has on it doesn't do it justice, it would probably look nicer in satin. Definitely a beater.

    Looks like a prototype, though obviously never handled
