    Sharpen it like you would O1 and keep it oiled. It can rust as it is a carbon tool steel. Then beat the piss out of it. Lol

    I’ve had UNK fever the last few weeks!

    This beauty stopped by and may stay a while!

    Looks like black and green linen micarta. I’m not a big fan of the linen micarta.

    It may be canvas but it feels pretty smooth.

    Ok, I'm hungry now. Awesome seeing your little one chasing the dog in the background. Looks like life in Yakima is pretty darn good.

    One of my end tables...

    Some nice tools cleaned up and ready for action, with some nice reading materials.

    So after cutting up this foam and cardboard for a project the UNK finally stopped being shaving sharp...


    09948779-352B-4AF5-AF90-AD1EF4FFD633.jpeg

    It held a dry shaving sharp edge for quite some time ( 30 days) with no maintenance for quite a few different task.

    Opening mail, cutting dinner stuffs, materials for friction fire, breaking down cardboard, copper wires, made many bald spots on my arms, slicing up paper, and different kinds of ropes.

    It was a bit difficult to get the blade to the sharpness I had it at, but it was definitely worth it.

    To better describe how sharp I had it, I sharpened it until I could lay it against the tip of my finger and move the skin with no real amount of pressure. Just contact.

    Now tomorrow I need to figure out which knife is next.

    Thanks for looking, make sure to get at least one of Scott’s knives! They are worth it.

    Kinda hard to go wrong......

    I traded into an S7 Deer Creek recently. I'd love to spend time extolling the virtues of a Gossman knife, but we all know at this point what Scott is capable of. I've never used S7 before, and today was our 1st official group campfire of the fall/winter season, so what better time to see what the Deer Creek had to offer.

    The handle is definitely Tusker, not Tusker Companion, but the knife overall feels just a touch lighter and more nimble than my 5" Tusker. Probably because it's lighter and more nimble than my 5" Tusker ;). It's not the laser that my Tusker Companion is, but that's more a reflection of my limited sharpening skills. It is comfortable as hell. And it didn't have any problems prepping the fire. Or opening the cheese packages for the grilled cheese marathon, or making s'more sticks.

    The verdict? She's a keeper. My biggest problem now with my Tusker, Tusker Companion, and Deer Creek, is.....what do I do with the rest of my knives?

    Hello everyone I thought some of you might like this, one of @S.Gossman mini Striker Knives is in Backwoodsman Magazine! This is the NOV/ DEC 2017 issue.

    I noticed this while reading and having my morning coffee.

    98245530-4612-4F3D-960F-685C90AFA090.jpeg

    This is the third knife made by Scott being used by people who write for the magazine, at least the third that I have noticed... I am sure that Scott’s knives have been in Backwoodsman magazine quite a few times.

    Take care, have fun, and use your Gossman Knives!

    Thanks,

    Jarrod

    Update: Additional thoughts:
    I really miss mine... I still haven’t located it yet. Hopeful I will though!

    Saw that Backwoodsman issue a couple of days ago. That's my photography. I do Dan Shechtman's photography for all his articles.
