    The "Mentor"

    The "Mentor" will be offered in a VERY LIMITED ONE-TIME-ONLY-QUICK- SPRINT-RUN!!:eek::D:cool:

    So, when they're gone. . . they are GONE forever!!!! :eek::eek::eek::cool::cool::D:D:D

    ***We do not anticipate this offer lasting more than 30 minutes!!!

    So, grease your meese and prepare for some bloody trough warfare!!!!

    About the knife:

    Master Knifemaker Mike Thourot is not only my oldest friend (By about a thousand years) but he was also my Mentor. We designed this knife together and I am very excited about this project. :thumbsup::cool:

    Few craftsman are lucky enough to work with a Master like I was with Mike and I am eternally grateful for his guidance and friendship. :cool:

    Busse Custom Shop is proud to introduce this thin EDC/pro-skinner with a very ergonomic and extended length handle. :thumbsup:

    Experienced skinners will appreciate the extended handle for the added maneuverability and control. :thumbsup:

    The slightly raised pommel and lanyard hole give this knife superior handling properties when held in the much favored edge-up position.

    It features a thinly ground drop point blade that makes it perfect for use as a skinner or EDC. :cool:

    It is available in a variety of blade finishes, and handle options. :thumbsup:

    The Mentor is being offered in INFI with a high saber ground platform, making it tough enough to handle whatever you throw at it. :thumbsup::cool:

    It is being offered in a Hand Applied Satin finish or the Busse Industrial Grade Double Cut (BIG DC) Finish. :thumbsup:

    The BIG DC Finish will be hand ground along the outer perimeter and may have light machine marks visible through the Double Cut finish. :thumbsup:

    Let's Drink!!! :cool:

    Maybe I will try for it, and if I land one, I will have my mind made up for me.

    What a beautiful little blade!
    Glad it wasn't bigger; I might have had to try for one. As it is, good luck to all who want one. As pretty as it is, I won't be attempting to battle at the trough. No insult to the Bossman or Mr. Thourot. Just have lived long enough now to realize it would not get used. And I at least INTEND to use every knife I get.

    Looks great. But remember, the only difference between Mentor and Tormentor, is just three little letters.

    Im not trying to get more snouts in the trough, but that blade looks very versatile. That large handle means business and the blade is fairly stout, I bet you could find lots of uses for it.
