I have never been interested in the ASH1 up until recently. Suddenly I'm on the hunt.

That's one you don't see discussed much anymore. I suspect they're all securely squirreled away in collections or "favorited" by their owners.

I never tried one, but they're always held in really high regard.

Needless to say when it came up for sale....


That particular ASH has, without question, the appearance of a "grail" knife!

Adam, once you feel the handle / balance of a non-fat ASH you probably won't ever be without at least one. The two Busses that always top my favorite list are the NMSFNO and ASH-1 (.25" or less).

I'm still trying to figure out my favorite. I've cleared a few to the "RUNNER UP" list...

Runner Up Favorites ....

Busse ASH-1
Busse NMSFNO
Scrap Yard Scrapper 5
Swamp Rat Ratmandu

I still haven't figured out my favorite from the remaining list of contenders.

I never considered the ASH1 to be a knife I'd carry since the max blade length allowed by law here in Texas was 5.5", but that has changed since September first.

I was packing yesterday for a trip bush at the end of the month, always hard to just grab a few knives.... wink at last count there were TWO .32 ASH1s, the FFFBM as well as the B4 and sundry blades.
