    Introducing the Busse Combat Trough Raider!!!

    Let me start by saying that I love this knife!!! . .. The coffin handle flows perfectly into the gently recurved, extra thick INFI blade. The Trough Raider's blade is replete with both flat and deep hollow bevels and is coupled with our corrugated bevel technology (CBT). Our patented CBT not only reduces friction along the primary cutting bevel but also increases lateral strength! The deep fuller lightens the blade and enhances the balance!

    The Trough Raider truly is the stuff of legends!!! In years to come, your great grandchildren will climb upon your lap to hear you tell the story of how you were there on that fateful night in May of 2019! They will undoubtedly look at you with a skeptic's eye because there were so few survivors who lived to tell the tale. You will assure them that, "Yes", you were there on the bloodiest Wednesday in HOG history. A night carved out in time when the HOGs raided the trough in a rabid, cataclysmic stampede, the likes of which had never been seen by man or beast! . . . . And there you were, right in the thick of it, completely covered in burning bacon grease and shredded pork, stomping on young piglets like it was your job!!!! They will stare at you in disbelief when they hear you tell of your trials and tribulations and how so many fell by the wayside or were trampled within inches of reaching the trough and how you chose to "carry on" through the thick of it!!!! . . . Yes, there will be tears in your eyes, and at that moment, your great grandchildren will salute you, and hug you, and wipe the tears from their own eyes because, at that moment, they will know that they are in the presence of a true HOG warrior. . . a war ravaged Trough Raider who has "No Regrets!"!!!

    Let it be known that there is little room for the squeamish on this raid. For how can you lay claim to the title of "Trough Raider" unless you're willing to trample those who would stand in your way?

    The Busse Combat Trough Raider will go "LIVE" on the Busse Combat Website, Wednesday May 22nd, 2019 at 9:00pm Eastern!

    Coffin handle on the Pork Chop and Battle Shark is the best handle Busse has designed IMHO, it's roomy + comfy and locks you in naturally. Good stuff, thanks Jerry for putting it on this beast! :D
