The Busse Natural Outlaw is a formidable knife. Right in the center of Busse’s Combat line in size, it gives a nice 6″ blade that is great for all-purpose cutting as well as chopping. The model I got has a busse krinkle coat finish on it, with Busse Combat logo and micarta handles. It also has the Busse assymetrical grind on the final edge bevel, which is not like a typical V-grind, but instead has a straight grind on one side and a convex grind on the other. Busse claims that this edge is more robust than a typical V.

I will say straight up that I am not a huge collector of Busse knives and only really like the Natural Outlaw (NO) because it looks and feels damn cool. I don’t have an opinion about INFI steel because I’ve never chopped concrete with it. I am not Cliff Stamp. What I do know is that this is a well made knife and I really enjoy using it for cutting tomatoes.

At any rate, the NO is a high quality, tactical powerhouse of a knife. The handle grip is a bit big for my smallish hands, but still has great retention and purchase.

Blade Length: 6″
