    Looks like @Roughneck75 got the 1000th post! I was going to try and make it but beat me to the punch.

    Anyways, some shots of one of the most used Tuskers (though not a chance compared to @Gruntinhusaybah and his S7 Champ!!)

    @never.truly.lost hot dang that knife is a beauty! Looks like you scrub the blade clean every once in awhile?

    Picked up my third Gossman today at a local show. The handle material is what sold me.

    @never.truly.lost you might want to check post #1000 again...;) I love that Green and Brass Bowie Tusker you have! I never get tired of seeing that one.

    @Skullhead that is a super awesome find! I still have never found any custom makers at any of the events I have gone to that I would recognize. I hope to find one stupidly pawned off one day though.

    I got it off of a knife dealer that actually knows Scott. He usually has about five of his knives with him. I bought my other two from him as well.

    After waiting a long time for the right one to appear it finally happened. Just got a box at work and opened up my Gossman S7 Survival Puukko in green micarta. Held it for 2 seconds and immediately put it down to go get some pallet wood out of the plant.

    It cuts stuff again! I like this simple yet practical design. The Gossman Anniversary Knife.

    DC4 for the win!

    DC4 is my favourite do all sharpener I think. Although, I do have a size Large GST in the mail along with a very cool Deer Creek so that may take the spot in my BBT’s sheath...

    Version, or attempt 3 at the bull roarer. Much louder, and much heavier. Made with honey Locust.

    Mail call today!!

    Got my wicked parcel in this evening with a huge thanks to @S.Gossman for entertaining my hybrid Deer Creek handle/5”x5/32” Tusker blade idea. Seen here along with a PSK and large GST. This along with my BBT and I feel like I have finally completed by bushcraft/camping/hunting setup.

    Stay tuned for some in use photos and report on how it performs!

    Cheers
    Andy

    Love the hybrid! The Deer Creak handle is near perfect and the Tusker blade is proven many times over.

    That's awesome. That knife in 1/8" 3V would be a masterpiece.

    @Creaky Bones @VAsticks It almost has a nice distal taper and feels nice and thinned behind the edge. I wouldn’t want to go much thinner myself in A2 but 3V could handle it for sure (I don’t really baton myself unless it is down to a couple inches and the axe isn’t as effective).

    @Andster I agree with the DC handle; has to be the best one Scott has put out yet; or at least my favourite so far.

    5/32" A2 is pretty close to perfection as well. Awesome knife.

    Gotta give credit to Anster for the hybrid. It's was his idea originally. If there is enough interest, I will make more.

    Created a 20 DPS bevel and blended the final bit of edge in honing with the ceramic side of a DC4. Perfection for this blade/my use for it (shaving sharp but still easy for field touch ups).

    Used it this evening for fire prep but no photos as I was rushing to beat the sun setting.

    Finally found the sweet spot on the handle. Took about a dozen feather sticks or so but sorted out now.
    I have been used to choking up on blades with a choil for so long I had to focus a bit and try moving back a bit to maximize the shape of the handle. Super comfy now though and good to go.

    Even though my line-up can take care of most needs, I keep wanting more Gossman!

    Absolutely love it. My favorite steel and Scott did a killer job on the heat treat as always. I haven't once considered getting rid of that knife.

    You will love S7. Unbelievable edge retention under tough use; Scott's heat treat is killer.

    Scott's burlap handle feels great in the hand; is super "grippy" and the aesthetics of it grows with time for me. A really great choice for these tough tools.

Using this knife to maintain my property and hack trails into my bear bait stations, and trail maintenance in general. I feel like a gladiator wielding this thing. Scott Gossman knocked it out of the park with this knife. :42::dblthumb::42: View attachment 516443

    It's finally decided to be spring here in Maryland. Beautiful day to head to the camp/firepit with a couple other families to let the kids run amok in the woods. As usual I rolled in an hour or so early to get the fire going. Today the S7 Deer Creek Came to play.

    Nothing unusual. Split some kindling. Make some shavings. Build an upside down fire. Light it and walk away. The Deer Creek handled all chores flawlessly. It's probably just me, but when I first got the knife, I had a hard time getting it as sharp as I wanted it...or so I thought. It didn't feel razor sharp like some of my other knives, and I was frustrated. Then I actually used it, and low and behold it really was razor sharp. It's the only knife I've ever had in S7, and it feels different somehow. After using it a few times I'm more accustomed to the feel and I'm comfortable that I really can get it wicked sharp.

    Ok, fire built.

    If things go well, and I get there early enough, I'll have some extra time to play before the mayhem begins. I decided to see if I could knock out a quick spoon. The quickest and easiest way for me to strip off some wood is to pound my knife into a stump and draw the wood against it. That means I need a knife strong enough to drive into a stump, and with enough blade length to solidly plant into the stump and still leave plenty of cutting area.
    My favorite part of this is the race to see how close to a spoon I can get before the kids show up and claim it. I've never made it to an actual spoon. Usually it's something between a branch and a cudgel. Today I got it to an actual spoon shape before it disappeared. I'd show you a picture of it, but it's out in the woods somewhere.

    The bottom line is that the Deer Creek was a champ. It's amazingly comfortable, versatile as hell (it cut cheese quesadillas into kid sized pieces later in the day) and all in all just an awesome tool. Hell of a design Scott Gossman. If you haven't tried a Deer Creek, you should.
