Badger Attack Trivia:

The rear talon hole was left off for three reasons:

1.) It allows for more concealable or easy day-to-day carry due to its shorter length.

2.) The Badger Attack has been one of our most popular knives to be employed as a big game hunter. (Elk, Caribou, Bear, etc. . .) In order to facilitate this application where the knife will be used in an upside down fashion for a good period of time, it became obvious that the rear talon was going to be in the way, thus the removal.

3.) It is very difficult to chop with a short blade. The removal of the rear talon allows for comfortable "choking back" on the handle so that you can employ a 3-finger grip (no pinky) and you can achieve very impressive chopping results with this blade. This "choking back" simply lengthens the knife and offers a better "chopping balance" point.

As for losing the advantage of the rear talon hole for lanyard purposes, I think that you'll be more than pleasantly surprised as to how comfortable the knife still feels with the lanyard run through the rear tube flange. We have even attached a cord-braided D-guard to the BAE using the front talon hole and rear flange.

Hope this helps,

Check Out This Extremely Limited, One-Time Run of the "ANOREXIC BADGER"!!!!

I had posted a pic of this special Custom Shop model during the Feb. Death Chat 2003.

It has been determined that this will now be a very limited, ONE-TIME run of less than 275 total pieces!!!!!

There will be two versions of the "ANOREXIC BADGER" available. A Serial Numbered Satin Finished model and a Laser Engraved Desert Artillery Tan Tactical Grade version. Many "Sterile" Desert Anorexic Badgers have already been deployed.

There will be a mass email concerning this offering. I will post an announcement on this forum as well as the Busse Combat website forum that will act as the "START" button for ordering sometime within the next 10 days. I will give you a more precise time as the moment nears.

The Serial Numbers will be determined by the time-stamps on emails, time-stamps of phone calls, and time-stamps of on-line orders received. The earlier you order, the lower your number. . . . and of course, there will be a "Special Offer".

Check back on this post as I will be adding pics as we proceed.

...and here it is next to an Active Duty. ..

there . . . will be more pics to come!
