    I stumbled onto a scaleless/skeleton Badger Attack, are these very common? I may be able to buy it, any idea what I should offer? It is as new condition.

    I'll see what I can do, I'm just afraid I will be walking out with it if I handle it!

    Well, I handled it and it's mine now!
    It is not skeletonized under the para cord wrap, my mistake, sorry.
    I can see light were two of the scale holes would be, I can not make out a hole for the third most forward one though, the wrap just may be to tight to see it.
    I have been checking on this knife since the gun shop that it was at opened 6 or so years ago, it was always there in the case. Had a sticker on it for $275.00 which I figure is pretty cheep for a Busse these days. They had a big sale going when I went in to take a picture today, I asked how much with the sale? 25% off $206.00. I offered $175.00 and they took my offer:embarassed:


    The secondary grind is a bit uneven, is this what is reffered to as an Asymmetrical Edge?
    Have you seen a cord wrapped BA before?
    Is this one INFI or A2?
    Any other info you might have?

    I would guess that about 5 minutes in the Busse forum over at www.bladeforums.com and you will have all your answers.

    Them boys know their INFI.



    EDIT.. I see you did...nevermind!

    WOW! She is back.
    hand shaped Canvas Tiger-Hide micarta with solid pins and satin blade too!
    Man is it sexy! To hold a SHBA in your hand is a treat and when it looks as good as it feels, it's just plain amazing.

    With authentic Amy drool.


    Nice score all around. I'm tempted to get mine done (satinized) but I can't figure out why. LOL I love smoothcoat. But WOW! If they came out with a .22 or .18 satin version, I'd be all over it.

    Garth said that he would need to refinish the blade in krinkle coat after fitting the scales. They don't do smooth coat any more. I had to go satin, krinkle on a SHBA just ain't right!
