Busse Steel Heart II

Story - The only reason I got this one is that knife collector's itch. I've had to have the mint SH2 in my collection :) That's it. Oh, almost forgot, it has different handle texture and color, which makes it more justified buy. For the record I've had to search for this baby over the period of 3 months, and ended up paying almost the double of the original price tag. Which should give you an idea regarding the availability and market price of the old Busse blades, INFI or not. Although, this one is INFI steel. Not that the new ones are easy to get, but everything is relative, thus the new blades can be considered as easy to get. Obviously this knife is no user, I mean for me it is not a user. Otherwise there are a lot of people out there who consider keeping a mint Busse to be a sin ;) My excuse would be that I have 5 steel hearts by now, 5/16" SH2, this SH2, Ghost SH2, SH E and the ZT SH. Since this is a collector piece I won't be writing more here, as I've written quite a bit about all the other SHs I have in my collection.
