Busse, take two. I decided on an SJTAC over the over the ASH1, and glad I did. This one's a keeper. Would have preferred green, but this works. If I had to change anything it would be to skeletonize the tang to move the COB forward .75", and I wish the point was .25" closer to the longitudinal centerline.

 

This puppy is definitely coming with me, on my annual 4x4 diving camp this summer. Now I need a molle sheath to mount on my hunting/day pack.

This Ratmandu is just in, straight from the shop. At ∼ 5.375" the blade is 1" shorter than the SJTAC, and you would think either would cancel out the others utility, but for a pack mount the difference is noticeable. Other than the carbon steel, this is the configuration I wanted from the beginning. Having lived for many years tramping the forest with a homemade 5160 pig hunting knife, its just a matter of shaking off the laziness that sets in with stainless.

Whoa M, stepping your knife game up 1000%!

 

Here's a new 29 Knives balisong

It's a 3.5" with a utility profile blade... for EDC for me. It's somewhat lighter than normal 29's at 7.7oz for solid 304 stainless steel and ATS-34 blade.

I plan to try one eventually, but unfortunately autos/semi-autos are prohibited on this side of the ocean. Have already sent my 0350s out. The laws here suck and the only reason I stay, is the ocean and given the choice, I'd rather not be a racial minority.

 

I'm really digging the Busse SJTAC--It fits well. I'm keeping an eye out for one without a choil, or maybe the custom shop might get some blanks in the future.

If you've got the cajones to EDC a fixed blade as badass as a Busse.. you have no need to carry anything lesser than that? I mean afterall I would be afraid to get steak guts inside the action of a Microtech, let alone beat on it haha. They've survived some awesome torture tests though.

 

If you ever need me to mail you anything from the homeland for collecting purposes, lemme know bro

Not EDC, the SJTAC will be mounted on my XRay hunting (lite overnight) backpack. Its big enough to carry a deboned Mouflon sheep ;), but I'll use it for camping on the Big Island this summer, and might help my friend stalk a goat later this year. 

 

I have my Para 2s for carry when needed.

My Model 42. It is really nice, but I have been contemplating the idea of selling it. My issue with it is that it spends 100% of its time in the closet. It just seems to nice to use.

Here's a later revision of my hunting pack. For remote areas I rarely go without at least a poncho liner and/or space blanket etc etc etc. I've been stuck overnight before, and its not fun when unprepared.
