    If you own a Gossman knife post pics and tell us about what you use your knife for. I enjoy the feedback.

    This is my Gossman Scimitar, which I use for making other knives look small, busting through nasty knots when batonning, and creating little curls to start a fire with.

    Just won this knife at Gosstoberfest. Its a Deer Creek with a larger blade made from S7. The scales on the handle are laminated micarta and are both good looking and extremely comfortable. The blade length is the perfect in between size for bushcraft and camping chores.

    Thanks for posting guys. Let me know how you like that S7 steel with the longer blade. Love the Deer Creek design.

    I really like the Deer Creek design too, especially with the longer blade. You hit a home run with this one for sure.

    foxfire, thanks for posting. I remember when I made those. Old school style sheath. I make foldover sheaths now. Much easier, not as time consuming.
    One of my favorites, the Deer Creek batoning wood.

    Those PSK Srs are great little blades. Very good choice for a bushcraft knife IMO. Not much ya couldnt do with one. Make a nice companion to an Axe or hatchet.

    Great pics Cockedeyehunter! It's cool you put the little guy to work even though you weren't able to get anything recent. Thanks for posting the pics of it all here and on BF.

    I love the looks of this guy, and that WSK model you have is pretty awesome too. It's helpful to see so many models lined up.

    Met Scott and wife at the Blade Show in Atlanta last weekend. Very down to earth and gracious. I really like the fact that you stamp the type of steel on every knife... Wish more people would do that.

    Take care

    I hear ya. That dude Iz does make one fine blade. All the Tuskers I had are gone. I was suprised how quickly the big knives sold before the smaller ones. I would have made more Big Boar Tuskers if I would have known.

    Thank you, much appreciated. It was great meeting so many good folks at Blade. The only blades I normally do not stamp are CPM 154 and CPM S35VN.

    Here's my brand-spanking new 5" Tusker:

    [​IMG]

    Thoughts: VERY comfortable handle. I've been through a few bushcraft knives already, the reason being their handles have been too small. The handle on this is contoured and fits and fills my hand well. Also, fit and finish on the knife and sheath is basically perfect. Scott has an incredible eye for detail.

    Unfortunately, I haven't had time to go out and work it. More pics to follow once I do!

    Thoughts: Unlike the Tusker, I've already taken this out with me fishing a few times. This is a handy knife. The handle is just large enough to get my whole hand on and actually use. It's a great blade, excellent edge geometry...came wicked sharp from Scott.

    There's not a lot of wasted space on this design. The ricasso is only 1/4" long...the blade ends and the handle begins.

    Thanks for posting guys. Let me know how you like 3V compared to A2. Even though 3V is a "high performance" steel, I just can't give up my love for A2. Maybe because I have more field time with A2. A2 just works, plain and simple.

    Absolutely: So far, I polished the microbevels on each knife, and with DMT stones, I don't think I could tell the difference between your A2 and 3V. I was worried 3V would be impossibly hard to maintain, but it doesn't seem that way.

    Diamond abrasives are the way to go. I haven't come across a steel type yet, mine or other makers/production that a diamond sharpener can't handle.

    Well I finally gave my 5" 3V Tusker a workout. We did a few miles on the AT and I figured I'd bring it along and use it. I batoned a few pieces of 3-1/2" to 4" diameter hardwood (sorry guys, tree ID is my next skill to learn). It was some pretty tenacious wood; it held together really well. I was batoning so hard it drove the knife handle up into my wrist, but the Tusker kept asking for more. Afterwards I made some fuzz sticks with the still razor-sharp edge.

    While this wasn't a very comprehensive test (especially to test CPM 3v), I really liked the Tusker: it's big enough to beat on, yet still fits on your belt and it's not too large to do shavings or fuzz sticks with.

    Enjoy:

    It's up on the Appalachian Trail, about 2 miles west of the Lehigh Gorge...near Slatington, PA.

    Tusker work out.

    Here are a few pics from this morning. I used my O1 Tusker, GB Mini, and my CT single bit axe Bax 40 gifted me. The Tusker is a great blade, I've already cleaned her back up since these pictures. I take some 400 grit paper to it and knock the hedge stains off of it. Makes the blade look great and loved.

    I have a 8 inch blade big boar tusker and a 4 inch blade 3/16 thick knife that I named Mike's Ultimate Survival Knife. I use them for everything! I have gutter
    d skinned and quartered several whitetails with my BBT. I wish I had more money to buy a Mother Tusker but right now all of our money is going out while we are staying away from home for my wife's cancer treatments.
