    3V Polaris kicked butt this morning in the -50°F wind for some fire prep.

    Feathers were lit with just a firesteel.

    Got to play with Polaris for the first time today after work. Took it outback to make some smaller pieces of the bigger pieces the BBT created yesterday, in prep for the fire pit this weekend. As expected, it was a joy to use! Next, it got a work out in the kitchen on produce prep for the pork tacos I made tonight. Didn't miss a beat pretending to be an indoor knife.

    I think I may need a GST in the very near future to keep these things sharp. Do most people prefer the small or large models as an all-arounder??

    The smaller GST is easier to carry around or pack with you, I use my larger one more though.

    Prying, honing, splitting, and scraping.

    The little ones have moved to be back ups. Just in case I lose it or the impossible break it. You’ll be happy with either though.

    I also have one of the gerber honing steels from the 70s. reading some review scott says that was his inspiration for the GST. frankly GST is a vast improvement in every way. it's shorter and lighter while at the same time offering a better sharpening surface and more functionality.

    Sitting at the computer doing some research, reading up on Bush-classs requirements, and deciding on which blade to bring along.

    Had an interesting week in regards to my collection. For the time being, this is my only Gossman, but I can tell you the family is growing next week! My daughter wants roasted marshmallows tonight, so the fire prep begins...

    (That sweet back drop is a fabric sample I “borrowed” from the wife who is apparently having some of our chairs reupholstered)

    I need to get some time and funds set aside to earn one of his pocket knives and patches.

    You can only get them by earning them in his classes.

    Yay big blades!

    Scott, when you release them, please don't forget your left coast fans on Pacific time. It would break my heart to wake up to "This item is out of stock" on that Kubo. See avatar.
