There is a Wealth of information here, so after reading it again for the umpteenth time I just went ahead and made it a sticky.

It it not only a test of specific knife types, but blade profiles, handles, balance and feel, what is now called ergonomics. This test and the one linked to in the thread will help all of us as we refine our search for the perfect knife for the task or tasks we want to accomplish.

Good idea, Randy. This one definitely deserves to be a sticky.

That was an awesome review. I was really surprised on some and a few I wasn't surprised they didn't do well. Only a few of the Busse knives I owned did well for bushcraft duties (except for chopping, they are best for that), it seems like the blades are just too thick to do any real world type work, like feather sticks, carving wood, kitchen duties or peeling an apple. They are great for chopping, but you really need a thinner bladed knife to be a dedicated bush crafting knife. A couple of my best knives for bushcraft is my Mora knife and my Blindhorse knives bush crafter. The only Busse/Busse Kin knife that did ok, was the Busse Anorexic Boss Street, and thats mainly because of the thinner blade., but great review!!!

Well, my SFNO Le does pretty good, when it comes to finer carving.
It comes down to which grind you go for.
Of course, a smaller blade is more handy for fine carving, but unless you are carving a spoon or something similar, my SFNO does OK.





Fine enough to easily take a spark from my ferrorod



But I do get what you mean.
The way I see it, you can make a great compromise between strength and "nimbleness" by refining the Busse edges.
I usually go for a refined convex. Something like the one the 711 came with. That edge just rocked, in my eyes. Haven't changes that one a bit.
