The Team Gemini Light Brigade is a lighter version of the original Busse Combat Team Gemini. Nearly 1/3 pound of weight was removed from the original version by using our Light Brigade treatment. We use a special anti-vibration web that spans the entire inside profile of the handle while producing an I-Beam effect. This allows us to greatly reduce the weight of the handle without turning it into a hollowed out tuning fork.
We then use an end mill with radiussed corners to ensure that there aren't any stress risers introduced into the design. On the primary bevel we employ an extremely large diameter (42") shallow hollow grind . This ensures a much lighter blade while allowing for a wicked sharp edge. This large diameter also greatly decreases the tendency that smaller diameter hollow grinds have of binding in wood when chopping.
