    I ended up with this awesome set. https://www.bladeforums.com/threads/nekkid-busse-with-pics-fmv8-b7-b5-ds8.1596172/#post-18229292

    I bought them both plus a B11 from @Will York who is an awesome guy to deal with!

    What was it about the ASH2 tip that you guys don't like?

    I can only live vicariously through pics since I have never held an original ASH2. But it looks like the tip was more in line with the center of the handle on the OG? More drop point? Not a problem for me truly.

    Really if I could change one thing it would be the grind, either higher or FFG. If I could change two, it would offer DC and Satin options. Looks like the OG version had both and I dig it!

    Aesthetically the ASH1 tip profile is more appealing to me. From a practical standpoint, I suppose how you use either style knife might make one easier to use than the other.

    I also prefer the FFG on the ASH1 (prior to the BG version).

    I have a couple of those original Steel Hearts in the safe. I also have a Holy Terror from the same era.

    The Holy Terror unbolts and becomes a D-gaurd for the SH1.

    Also pictured with some other early SH's.

    The small knife is a 3 finger.

    .....it didn't follow the lines of the original. That front ends one of the reasons I love the ASH1, the 2 didn't do it for me nearly so.

    Very nice collection. Those SH1’s and Holy Terror are spectacular. Is that green linen?
