That's a pretty opinionated statement. Not to be argumentative, because we all have our likes and dislikes, but can you name a single thing a Cold Steel knife can do that a Busse can't do better? (aside from costing less) I'd say with their Infi, Busse is the North American company to beat... I'm not saying you have to use your knife as a prybar to see if it's decent, but torture tests are pretty confidence inspiring when you're discussing survival. You've said how pleased the guys in the sandbox are with their SOGs. Do you know one of them who wouldn't trade it for a Busse if given the chance?:
