    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!

    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...

    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 IMG_1457.JPG

    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

    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!

    IMG_2359.JPG IMG_2360.JPG IMG_2361.JPG 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.

    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.

    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. IMG_0831.JPG

    Thought I would share with you guys one of my favorite things to do with a Gossman knife. 20170407_170723.jpg 20170407_170754.jpg Helping a new member of the family... out of the box. That Razorback is my favorite knife. Here's the whole gang. 20170407_171506.jpg 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.

    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;)

    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.

    Micro Tusker used to cut the liner, and clean a few edges...

    Materials at the beginning of the project...
    IMG_6784.JPG

    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

    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.

    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!

    So....
    I will get some pictures of them up soon.
    New phone so I lost all other pictures I had. Stupid!
