Ray, it would seem like T-W was the reason SRKW was born...

Then it seems odd to me that there is no official announcement of the new knife in this forum.

Jerry rarely comes to the Swamp... usually it's just Ganzas when hungry Hogs, Rats and Dogs overwhelm BF...

We are planning a Tali-WhackerGanzaaaaaaaaaa for this coming Thursday April 25th!!!!! :thumbup:

This is a very unusual knife. We made them right after the September 11th attack. We donated hundreds of them to USSOCOM after 9/11 for distribution to our Special Ops Teams. Several of these were presented to soldiers who had been wounded in combat while the rest were given to our front-line troops. This was an “operator” only blade and the ones that were distributed were in the “sterile” condition with no markings whatsoever. A numbered Patriot tag was shoved into the front pouch with a letter explaining a little about the name, “Tali-Whacker” meaning “Taliban-Whacker”.

The Tali-Whacker was the first model EVER made out of SR-101 and it came along well before the inception of SWAMP RAT. It is the ONLY Busse Combat Blade made with SR-101 and a totally Sterile Resiprene C handle. The talon hole was removed as were all markings from the handle for Complete Sterility. The “coolness” of this blade was the inspiration behind Swamp Rat.

The original TW was 1/4" thick and featured a 6 3/4" long blade and was 12" OAL.

This Limited Edition Annivesary model is a bit longer but much faster with its super light 3/16" thick, 7 1/4" long, satin finished blade. It is 12.5" OAL

This Anniversary model celebrates the courage, sacrifices, and spectacular job done by all of our troops who have served and continue to serve.

As always, we thank our brave men and women of the armed forces for all they do and have done in the fight for freedom.

Stay tuned for Pricing and Ordering information in a sticky that will be forthcoming, :thumbup:

Jerry
