    The craziest thing is that you had just posted a pic of your grail like a week or two before they popped up on AZCK! That was insane!

    Congrats brother PM the score!

    Then I guess you're going to have to buy a couple more so you can have a beater and a safe queen of each !!

    I picked up the 16. It goes with my 1 very nicely. :cool:


    Interestingly enough, there are quite a few differences between the two. Number 16 is nearly 0.25" longer, does not have a swedge and must be a bit thicker as well, because it doesn't fit in the leather sheath I have for my number 1. I guess I'll have to dedicate this heavier one for my strong arm when double wielding these during the next apocalypse.

    Ok. You need to start posting more pics mister. Lol!

    You need a good friend who's willing to drop these on the concrete for you. Remember how well it worked for you last time.

    Very nice. I have a standard and a mini. Wanted to pick up one of those Magnums off of AZCK but it wasn’t in the stars for me right now.

    The set looks great and it's nice to see that sheath again! Great job putting them all together. I think the three with Micarta need a gunny sack style sheath that would hold all three of them and carry with a shoulder strap :D

    I like AZCK but they do tend to make mistakes on Busse's for better and worse. A few months back they had a Boss Street for $295 IIRC but the picture was for a Straight Handle Satin Jack, yeah.. so I took a chance and it was most definitely a pristine SHSJ.

    A number of years ago my elderly Uncle met me out at the gun club for some shooting and I had just picked up a mint early 70's Smith & Wesson 41. I was test driving it when he got there and asked if he could see it, he promptly bobbled then dropped it flat on its side on the rough gravel and about one square inch of the original wood grip snapped off and flew into never land. He looked ready to assume a fetal position and I was just stunned silent. Luckily I wanted after market grips for it anyway and nothing else was wrong, you just have to roll with honest mistakes and make the best of it.

    Yeah definitely can't get too mad at honest mistakes like that. Still sucks though. What kind of grips did you end up getting for it?

    I was so jealous of resinguy’s blade that I asked Garth to modify a Muddy along similar lines. Bobbed the tail while we were at it...
