    IMG_2587.JPG ok, on a serious note,
    What would be your Gossman of choice for the zombie apocalypse?
    It can only be one choice , so it would have to cover camp/survival chores as well as dispatching zombies and mauraders. For me, out of the Gossman knives I have right now, it would be my 6" tusker in 3v.
    It's still pointy enough to brain zombies and plenty burly in the .22 thickness. Also the 3v is pretty stainless. (Thou I would take a2 or 01 without worry) I might want some custom kydex thou.

    If I had to pick just one it would be by Tusker Companion. But let's just be real, I ain't going out to Battle zombies without my BBT too!

    I'd have to go with my 6" BBT in 80CrV2 for comfort, versatility and overall usefulness.

    I really want to try the Bolo. Scott and Kevin did a great job with those.

    Thank you!

    I am a Ricasso guy vice a Choil guy after reading a lot of Ed Fowler.

    It makes the knife very handle heavy but that is okay by me.

    Why are you making me chose one! There is to many good choices!

    IMG_0365.JPG

    For Zombies though the Bolo would probably be the best due to speed in hand. The BBT is probably second...

    It is probably my most used knife by Scott right now. It was a few others, but taste have shifted slightly for now.

    @Gruntinhusaybah if you want to borrow it just let me know.

    I am going to need one of those Kubos to beat up @S.Gossman !

    A new batoning record was broken this past weekend up in New York at Kevin Estela's Bushcraft course. Both Kubo's was tested and worked hard for 3 days. My buddy Dwayne Unger, broke his record batoning at least a 6 ft. long, 5 to6 in. across the log, 14 year seasoned elm that was loaded with moisture making it very tight grained. Sizes are approximate. This was done with the large one. As soon as I get pics I will post.
