    I'm going to throw my vote in for the Battle Mistress. In my mind's eye the BM defines Busse Combat.

    On a side note, this might make for an interesting survey.... Maybe the survey could pop up on the BF front page to get votes from those who have yet to be converted.

    that's funny, somehow I don't know if his business would have ever got off the ground had that been the flagship blade :D

    The Battle Mistress definitely gets my vote. Specifically, the FBMLE. That blade embodies everything that Busse is about, IMHO.

    I think that the Battle Mistress would be the Flagship!!

    I'll vote for the Steel Heart.

    It was the first "Busse Combat" blade (SH-1).

    I think the pre-ergo Steel Heart and Battle Mistress patterns are the essence of "Busse-ness".

    They were mainstays of the line during a period when Busse went from Jerry at the grinder to a full-fledged company. Many of the current knives take styling cues from the SH and BM, and their best features have evolved into modern versions. If you saw only a small piece of one of these blades in a picture, it would still be recognizable as a Busse.

    Ergo Steel Heart, Special Forces Natural Outlaw or the Fusion Battle Mistress. I'd love to have a heavy heart though. Then I'd vote for it. :p

    Looking at the sites, I see that the BM has had about 10 variations, 13 for the SH. Now I'm getting a SH itch...great! :p
