Thanks, I actually acid dipped, then finished with a little bluing to get it that dark.
A friend on here was nice enough to let me trade back into a spear point deer creek that I sold him a year or so ago. Nice having it back in the fold!
New set of Yellow Hawk Custom Kydex pants!
I like that a lot! And is that a Tek Lok on the back set up for horizontal carry? I'm looking for something like that for my TC...
Great looking lineup there Jj
It is a large TecLoc. The sheath is actually made of OD Green carbon fiber. The Ferro Rod was assembled by one of our own here on the forum and included onto the sheath. I'm awaiting another sheath for my 9" BBT. It will be made with Black Raptor Kydex. I'll share some pics when I get it back from Doug. Thanks
Looks great. Doug does excellent work.
I just sent him my 9"BBT in A2. He said he likes your knives and that he may do a video with it on his utube channel. We'll see
He has made sheathes for several of them.
It's a bit pricey, but no different than putting a cheap scope on an expensive rifle. Can't cheap out on a fine Gossman!
I just received a Polaris in 4V. I have one in 3V already, so I don't really need another one! I doubt that I'll ever break or wear out my 3V one! I'll probably just throw this up for trades but I'm half tempted to do a side by side comparison of the two steels.
You found one in the dark brown micarta you like.
What's your take on 3V versus 4V Scott? Any appreciable difference?
I like both and both have their good points. 3V has good stain resistance where 4V not so much. I actually prefer 4V as I found better edge holding and edge stability.
That dark brown stuff does look really good!
3 older ones, why the Case? Because as Scott and I say, it's all you really need! Scott and I got the Copperlock 20 yrs. ago when they first came out, great knife! The Kephart was made for an article Dan Shechtman wrote.
Scott probably made the first custom Kephart long before anyone else.
Thought I would share with you guys one of my favorite things to do with a Gossman knife.
Helping a new member of the family... out of the box. That Razorback is my favorite knife. Here's the whole gang.
Thanks for making awesome knives sir. Looking forward to the next one, hopefully next week.
Edit: Can anyone tell me the models of the 2nd, 4th, and 5th from the top?
@Bitterfists it looks to be one of his older Skinner models.
There is a good list on Blade Forums, and you don't even have to be a member to see son of Scott's older work!
Yeah, I spoke to Scott about the Razorback when I got it, he said it was a hybrid skinner. I was more curious about the others, I got a few in trades and they weren't certain of the models.
My 154cpm BBT enjoying a trip to SolDuc Falls in the Olympic Mountains.
My one and only, new to me unk!
We aught to start signing it, the way it's making its way around! Kind of like it's all ours, we'll just keep it at my house!
Thanks for all the recent posts. See some older models posted.
Yep, that Case is a awesome folder. Still got mine too.
Man this forum is priceless! Great to have ya check in bud!
Can you please identify bitterfists knife above....specifically the 2nd from the top!
I've wondered for a looong time and believe if anyone can put this question to rest, you can!
Thank you for the top tier work and I appreciate your support of your customers!
This is why I buy custom knives!
2nd is the first version of the Tusker Companion, 4th is a Mini Tusker (no longer made) and 5th is a PSK Sr.
That is awesome! Thank you sir.
I really like the Kephart! That would look great with the dark brown Micarta scales, woooooo
no love for a nessmuk in stag handle then
got one of the mini tusker with nice burl to match some where in the basement
just a few
Love that Mini Tusker!!
I have been using my Gossman Micro Tusker as of late for EDC, as well as some outdoors and kitchen task.
I have a few more pictures I will be posting up later!
I do like stag, but am partial to the Dark brown Micarta for durability and Micartas ability to forming. Which Gossman knives don't you have yet, lol? Nice collection Pommie
still waiting for a full size WSK to play with
Does anyone know what model this is?
protodoc, hmm, I'm guessing that was an early version of a Nessmuk. When I started making Nessmuks, the design changed a few times. That is probably one of the first ones I made.
This stag is another example of the design change.
the stag feel really nice in the hand
Micro Tusker getting dirty...
All in my new raised garden box...
Micro Tusker used to cut the liner, and clean a few edges...
Materials at the beginning of the project...
All lumber was wood from a pile that was from a construction site, and a pile in my back yard.
Now on to the next three.
Thanks Scott for the reply.
I must say, you nailed this model even in the early version. Fantastic blade geometry and wonderful ergonomically contoured handle.
Almost feels a bit like a hybrid between a Nessmuk and Deer Creek.
BBT clearing up a trail
I can accomplish pretty much anything I need with these two...
80CrV2 and 3V goodness...
As promised. My Gossman Collection. I'll get some action pics tonight or tomorrow.
Me and my Gossman Nessmuck decided to stop by and have a beer with Ole Nessmuck himself!
That's cool Mr. T. I was there back in 2008.
Very cool Mr Tettnanger! What's the bag?
Frost river large shell bag
Ok so whoever beat me to the Tusker Bowie better start posting some use pictures!
Damn that thing was pretty!
I was going to get it and it was gone!!! So I bought a Tusker Companion from @Currahee and the small Puukko from @S.Gossman
So I guess it's still a good for me!
I will get some pictures of them up soon.
New phone so I lost all other pictures I had. Stupid!
