Thank you sir. Hope you like it and get tons of use out of it.
The Polaris arrived, and I couldn't be happier. Now it's time to head to the woods and get it dirty.
That is a beauty! The Gossman Polaris is one of the handiest knives that I own! Welcome to the addiction and I want to encourage you to start your quest for your next Gossman knife........Because you will own more!
You must be a mind reader, brother, because that's what I'm doing right now, lol!
Now available, 8" blade BBT and 5" blade Tusker, M4 steel.
Now available, two A2 steel Tusker Companions.

Now available, Deer Creek and a Tusker Companion, both S7 steel. New chocolate brown leather.
Very nice leather!
I'm really digging the chocolate brown color for the sheaths. Nice! Mark
The chocolate brown will replace the lighter brown.
That's cool Scott. As I stated above I really like it.
Like the chocolate also.
So tonight I hit a deer on my way home from work... First time that's happened. More importantly I happened to have my Polaris in s90v. Not believing in being wasteful I loaded him up. My friend has a shed With a good skinning set up and since I hit the deer coming out of his yard... You know how it is in the country.... We share and share alike. Anyway I broke out the Polaris in front of him and let him try her out. Shock and amazement. That was what he got. He's an outdoorsman. Not a bushcrafter. He doesn't know steel or ergonomics. He just knows that Polaris is a fine knife that didn't even act like it was getting dull. Thank you again Mr. Gossman for an outstanding tool. I really feel like this knife can do it all.. now a deer Creek in s90v.... I believe that would inspire me to a purchase of a lifetime!!! Outstanding blade here. Customer for life, b
Great story Bayoubshcrft! Thanks for posting.
Great recovery Bayou!
That's why I like to use my S90V UNK as my deer hunting knife.
Thanks for that info... Just ordered the UNK in s90... Lol quite a salesman you are sir!
Four Deer Creeks, two S7 and two A2, also two M4 Polaris hopefully will be finished Friday this week.
Woohoo! Finally can get one of those Deer Creeks! A2 please!
Now available, two CPM M4 Polaris, two A2 Deer Creek's and one S7 Deer creek.
Now available two CPM M4 UNK's.
These are the last two knives for a couple of weeks. Got a Bladesports competition July 16th and I'm trying to get my new comp knife finished in 4V and need to build 3 more benches. Here's a pic of the comp knife I'm working on.
You hosting it Scott?
Wishing that black micarta CPM M4 UNK had a black sheath, very nice!
Yes at the shop.
Nice. I'll try to come down and watch.
You need to get some video footage of one these competitions Scott. Be cool to see your knife blowing through some wood.
I will try and get some video at that event. I'll post some testing of this new 4V comp knife.
Finished today and now available. Two BBT 1 3/4" wide A2 steel. Two Polaris CPM 154 steel.
i love the color you're using for the sheaths.
Chocolate brown. Who doesn't love chocolate. Lol
Those polari look awesome. Slight variation in the grind it would appear?
Can't go wrong with one of those low maintenance (cpm154) work horse woods knives!
No, it's my normal grind.
Green/black A2 BBT "OG" (original grind; not gangster!) = MINE!
Looked like a slight change in the spearpoint. Maybe just the picture. Awesome regardless.
Those are true to the original 1" wide design. The M4 is 1 1/8" wide so it makes the spearpoint look different.
why the sharpened portion on the spine of the comp knife?
or are you allowed to use that for chopping?
it is not sharpened. That area was ground to remove weight from that area to add to the forward weight of the blade.
good luck with the competition -- one of these days I'd like to try it.
Now available, two UNK's CPM 20CV steel, Orion CPM S90V steel.
Are you blades all flat grinds or do they have a micro bevel?
My grinds are flat/convex. I do micro bevels but with these steels and smaller size knives, I do zero edge very thin. About 0.10 to 0.12 at the edge.
Dang that's one fine looking Orion.
I think everyone should own or atleast try a UNK. Those two are terrific looking. Havent seen any red coral micarta in awhile.
