Not me. I wasn't really in the market for any sort of Battle Mistress and this hurricane has me at a loss of wages for a few days. I'm sitting this one out.

Sorry to hear that Adam. I'm sure more than a few will pop up on the Exchange.

Order placed.

The FBM is the knife that drew me into the Bussesphere. Watching Noss / Knife Tests ... that was the gateway drug of the time!

I just couldn't ever bring myself to spend $800 on one from the Exchange.

Personally, I like SR-101 and don't really care if my FBM is a BG or CG.

They are a great deal and one of my favourite knives. If I didn't already have two in INFI I would have been all over these. What I do want is an older version with CBT....just "because"...that is if I could stop buying ASH1s....

At some point you'll need to dust off the old abacus and count your ASH1 horde.

I'm guessing more than a dozen but less than 25.

That SKINNY Ash is calling to you ... begging to take its place among you ... where the brave INFI may live forever!

I would even make it worth shipping by throwing in a sexy ASH2 cheap grin

I've used SR101 a lot more than I've used INFI. INFI is great, but SR101 is too.

Just teasing you Andy.

Hahahaha, just kidding. I'm sure hundreds of STONE MINT skinnies will be available for years to come.

I think I'm being cruel to my Aussie mate.

I'm trying to decide if the BG FBM will be a replacement for some other chopper I have.

I'll have to wait ... two weeks ... to find out in person.

It will be an awesome chopper, but weighty as well. wink Carried in/on a pack shouldn't be bad.

Id be all over this if I didn't have a couple FBM's already.

I thought about getting a camo one with hand shaped micarta, but as long as I have a couple already I'm good.

I have the Cerakoted bronze one from Blade a few years ago, but I HAD to get this one in SR-101 and no CBT. wink

I like it but between my FDM and TTReg I'm set in the large area. I keep trying non ResC handles and keep coming back to the dogs for big blades.

I agree Sethrotull, you can't beat the ResC for chopping, its much easier on your hands.

I agree with all of the comments in here.

Tom - I'd love to have an INFI FBM.
BC - If I had one or two INFI I'm not sure I'd get one in SR101.
Seth - I too get drawn in by the looks of non-RESC, but drawn back to the performance of RESC.

I just bought several 1111, and love general perceived (haven't used them) performance. However, the IDEA and LOOK of the FBM is what brought me into the Bussepshere 10 years ago. I couldn't resist the chance to finally try one without paying $800.

Frankly, I like SR101. For my money, the jury is hung on the INFI vs SR101 debate. I just don't have enough evidence to declare INFI 200+% (based upon cost) superior to SR101.

I do, however, prefer to buy the best when I can afford it ... even if it just perceived or promoted as the best.

Great pics as always Andy!

Now you have me wanting to change one of my black / black G10 to sage.

I was terribly torn on black vs sage as in the past sage has been my favorite. I'm not as fond of the "new sage" which has a redish tinge to it (old had a sickly green tinge that I preferred).

I've owned more sage / tan micarta than anything else.

I wonder if its too late to change one.....

This autumn / winter I fully plan on testing the new BG FBM. I'd like to compare it to other choppers, but I may just complete a through evaluation of the BGFBMs performance.

I've never even held a FBM. I'm pretty excited, and Andy's pics just made me more so.

I recently saw a NMFBM up for sale, but it just doesn't have the panache of a regular FBM.

I'm ready. I hope the "2 Week" wait is actually like ... 2 weeks.
