Scrap Yard Scrapper 6!

After about a 2 year search I finally found and purchased a Scrapper 6. Made of SR77 Jack Hammer Steel, these blades are legendary among knife collectors and outdoorsman, and I feel very privileged to have found one as they are no longer being made. Dan Busse started the Scrapyard Knife Company after working in his brother Jerry's knife shop (Busse Combat) in the eighties. Literally making blades from the scraps (left over steel and handle material) of his brothers operation, he has bulit a knife company with a world wide following. The Scrapper 6 has come to be known in many circles as one of the toughest knives ever made."Non-hygroscopic Resiprene C handles (Chemical Resistent) have been proven in the harshest combat conditions around the globe. With an overall length of 11 1/2" the Scrapper 6 is the perfect sized blade for day campers, combat professionals, and those who choose to venture into the uncharted wilderness." The knife features full length tang construction, which basically means the knife is strong and thick all the way through the handle, unlike many fixed blades that have a cheaper "Stick or Hidden" tang. The knife is over a quarter inch thick at the spine to allow for a great deal of abuse. Grind Type is full height flat grind bevel with convex edge. Here are some specs and a website below. I can't wait to get this thing into the woods!

Steel: SR77

Spine Thickness: .275
