    The Busse Combat "Forsaken Mistress"

    Here's a little history on the design. The Forsaken Mistress was originally passed up for the original Fusion Battle Mistress.:eek: After much discussion and heavy drinking, we ended up going with the more traditional Mistress-like length and the more traditional wider tip design, like on the original straight handle BM. :thumbsup: At the time we thought that the Ergo Battle Mistress had strayed too far from the original design. We wanted the now legendary Fusion Battle Mistress to bring it back in line with the spirit of the original.

    As an interesting side note, the Forsaken Mistress served as the inspiration for the MOAB!!! :eek::eek::eek: . With over 12" of INFI hanging off the front of the time proven Fusion Handle, it could be argued that the Forsaken Mistress is just as much MOAB as it is Battle Mistress!:eek::eek::thumbsup::cool::cool::cool:

    I'm finally going to by give in and play your game..... I will fight at the trough for one of the nm blades.
    If it's hot pink I will make the drive to exchange it :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Edit... my bad I see we can choose the handles for nm, is there any way of paying extra and choosing a more exotic handle material ??

    I think I might be able to swing a Combat Grade. The black on black looks sinister.

    Nice! So it’s about 2” longer than my FFBM and similar blade and overall length as my Keffeler Sasquatch. Gives me a good idea on how big it will be
