    First those Busse's are so tuff that I field dressed a humvee that I got during Michigan's SUV season.
    Second, some LEOs may consider the knife as a set of brass knuckles, possibily a felony.

    The Argonne Assault is restricted from delivery to certain states under the provisions of those certain states statutes. We will not ship the Argonne Assault to MA, NY, CA, or DE.

    Looks like it would be very good for gutting watermellons.

    I think the legality of it would be questionable in several states, due to the handguard, as well as it being edged on both sides. Nonetheless, it looks sweet.

    I know that the Busse knives are not cheap. This one is priced higher than most.
    Some folks may not think that they are worth the cost because there ARE other great knives out there that cost less. I agree.
    To me the Busse knives are worth it.
    They are also a great knife to collect if you keep them in NEW/UNUSED condition because they always increase in dollar worth.
    I intend to keep this one in NEW/UNUSED condition & I'll be making a custom leather sheath for it.

    I am 100% addicted to INFI steel.
    I have really used and beat the livin' crap out of my Tankbuster and the coating took a bruising...so I stripped that off the blade & a year later the blade edge is still pristine (amazingly no edge chipping for that very high Rc hardness) and no rusting or staining even though INFI is not Stainless.

    That is a good looking knife.
    That might be a good one to have someday.

    Interesting. Try and duplicate the destructive testing found on knifetests.com on the Harbor Freight knife. If it survives I'll buy more than a few of them at that low price. The survivability of the Busse knives in destructive testing at knifetests is what first got me turned on to Busse and INFI steel.

    +1 on this. I can't count how many pistols I've now traded for or purchased, or classes that were funded, by slowly selling off my Busse collection. Now I'm looking at another M&P, and eyeing which Busse to clear out...

    I also recall when the first Argonne Assault version came out and all the fuss about that as well. I was in CA at the time, so it was a no-go there.

    Well, I've got my Argonne Assault order in & now "the wait is on" ~ I hear ya on California.

    I am in PA and this particular knife would be considered to be a "knuck knife" plus it sports a double edge so I can COLLECT it but, can't use it so I'll just "safe queen" it.

    What I have been doing to pay for my Busse knives is buy mine and use it for a pattern to make just enough leather sheaths for that model to pay for my knife.

    That keeps Mrs. QKShooter happy.
