Walter Brend 10" Model 2 built in 1987. Lile Rambo knives of the same era stand out in a crowd but a Brend knife stands out in a more subtle way and a whole lot more tougher with a full tang and 5/16 thickness to it's hollow ground spine and sharpened false edge. The choil turns the large blade into a paring knife for fine work.

Nice Andy, knife and pictures!
Sure beats the hell out of my old AK bayonet I picked up a long, long time ago in a far off land.
But it still works, so just going to keep it.

The large one in the picture, is it a custom order/design?????
Damn nice.

Busse is one tough knife too. First time I have seen that model. Forged in Fire and Knife or Death has brought a lot of deserved interest in knives. One of mans oldest tools.

Damn nice.
.... thanks Mate The Busse's present sales model is to put a design up for pre-order, normally it's available for less than a week (depending on the resources allocated to it). When you order you are charged $1US as holding deposit if you will. It may take 6-9 months for the knife to be finished, you are charged @ a week before it is ready to ship.
