Busse makes Damn fine knives, ones that you can rely on for many years.

Ditto what sig_230 wrote.

Might I also suggest a Fallkniven? I don't own one (yet), but they're highly regarded from what I've read.

Sniper1, I have quite a few of the Busse knives.

Bought my first with the "only one knife" philosopy. Fell in love with it, a straight handled Steel Heart II. Takes a lickin man.

Used it when I built my deck as a chisel on pressure-treat wood. Still shaves. Great for field too. Usedat my brothers property and cut the heck out of 2-3" trees, still sharp.

I bought numerous others because I have found that the knives are tough, and they have the best warranty, and I have found the owner to be 100% cool about his products.

I know your post is dated, but did you end up getting one??

Hey, thatmguy,
No ,I haven't bought one yet. Son's college bills come first. Then I holed the sidewall of a BFG M/T on my Superduty ! Damn Barrel Cactus !!!! Anyhow because of the wear on the tires I had to but an axle set to get correct diameters to match and there went another $300.00. And all that is after I gave my son a Sig P-220 two tone in 45 for his 21st Birthday. Boy ,I wish money really grew on trees !!!

But I/m glad you answered this post. I can't decide between a Steel Heart (7 1/2") or a Natural Outlaw in 6" blade lengths. Recommendations are encouraged and welcomed !!

I've had quite a few Busse knives. They are just about as indestructable as knives get.

The only reason I've ever sold one is because it was a "safe queen" and wasn't being used as it should.

I personnally wouldn't bother buying another brand of fixed blade knife.

thatmguy, suprised to see you over here! Going to be at the next INDY 1500?

Thanks to all who posted replies on this subject. But what blade length would you recommend a 6" or a 7 1/2" ?

Gabriel, ya never know where the heck I'm gonna be. Do you have another name on BF? Yes, I'll have a table at INDY in January.

Sniper1az, personally I like, no, I love my Steel Heart. It is the older straight-handled version, and THE knife I will NEVER part with.

In the E-handled models, I like the Natural Outlaw. It still provides enough mass for chopping, while a great balance (IMHO) when choked up on for more "delicate" jobs.

Do any dealers in your area have either that you can check out??

Mike

Mike,

No , I can't find a single dealer in the metro Phoenix area who carries Busse products. Hell, I'd take a road trip to Prescott, Flagstaff or Tucson just to go see one. Just have to wait & see what comes along.
