    How is the blade length for you? Think it could work with a shorter version?

    Oh it definitely could. I like it so much though because it's almost as much cutting edge as the Polaris but much lighter. I'm about to compare it to blade length of psk. Are you thinking that short?

    Off topic question how many Micro tuskers are out there? That is a great edc blade!

    Also tell Kevin to hold one of those SAK’s with his logo for me! I need one!

    Super cool and many thanks Kevin for sending me this picture!

    Here’s what Scott was looking at...

    If you’ll notice most of my custom knifes are Gossman blades.

    Really disappointed. I'm going to miss this for the first time in 6 or 7 years, but I can't get out of work tomorrow. Will have to catch up with you some other time @S.Gossman and @kahuana

    Looking forward to seeing the photos. Hope everyone has a great time.

    Scott,

    Is it cool if I just swing down for the day? The wife has a thing for me on Sun, but you are less than 2 hrs from me. I could do a day trip.

    Do you need me to bring anything?

    it is a bit hard to find. It is tucked away off of the road behind some buildings and down a driveway. Call Scott. He can get you there.

    Awesome, thanks for the shot. I have done them with 3 legs. The 4 looks like a lot more real estate.

    Looks like a cool spot.

    Thanks again,

    BIG thank you to Scott for inviting everyone. Had a great time and met some good local folks (seeing that I'm new to the area). @CCMDTrapper and son, @Fixedblade, @Chris keating, the arrow-making Chris whose username i didn't get, fire champion/father of the 6yr old spitfire whose username i didn't get, Mr Beck (for telling me about the cool anorak he was wearing), and Mrs Gossman, I enjoyed your friendliness and hospitality. Thanks all again!

    Thanks again Scott! Gosstoborfest was an absolute blast.

    I am thankful for all of the great forum members I got to meet. Had a lot of fun and even got to see the S7 test coupon that shrugged off two rounds of .308 like they were bb's. The whole experience made me proud to own my BBT and concreted the fact that I'll never part with it. Scott, "I'll live in a cardboard box before I sell that knife" haha. Thanks again for the warm welcome.

    I wish I had taken more pictures but I was having too good a time to think of it.

    Scott, Thanks for a great time and your incredibly generous hospitality. It was good to see old friends, put faces to forum names, and meet new people.

    Next year I will definitely plan to stay!

    Thanks as well to all the folks that donated to the giveaway raffle - Everyone won something!

    I was lucky enough to be drawn for the David Anderson / Nordsmith Knives "Lapwing" and I'm looking forward to using it on future fishing and hunting outings.

    And that trade table... Man-o-man. So much steel.

    It was great to meet all the BCUSA members who attended. Wish I could spend more one on one time with everyone, but there is so much to take care. We definitely had a group of first class folks. The highlight of my weekend was having Dave Beck attend. I knew you guys would enjoy that.
