    Gossman knife owners, if you could, get out and use your knives for the next week. I need the positive vibes. Nothing bad is happening but I have my reasons for this. Go out and do fire wood prep, build a shelter, baton wood, get out there and use them for what I made them for. Use them hard. I would really appreciate that.

    I may not show it, but I use my PSK and Polaris more than any folder right now. :dblthumb:

    PSK is always in my pocket. Polaris is always on my hip when outdoors. I just forget to use my camera. :D

    @S.Gossman

    I don't want to sound too halmark card or kiss ass, and you know what they say about a guy who qualifies what he's going to say haha, but most of the time I don't set out to do knify stuff, I'm just living life and take along the best tool I have.

    What I'm saying is, I've collected knives a long time. Your work transcends tools or collectables. They just become part of the owner's life.

    Scott, I have my micro Kephart and fatty UNK to bring over, they need some love. A2 and 440C taking a beating and saying "Can I have some more".

    I need to take that Hudson Bay out and take down some dead trees in the garden...

    Made a huge pile of shavings today with the BBT then lit them up. Managed to get waist high + flames out of them.

    No pics, but my S7 Deer Creek spent the week near Swallow Falls building fires and hiking the trails. I was with my wife’s family from Joppa and told them all about the guy in Harford County who made the knife that was building their nightly fires. Just got back today.

    Kubo 2.JPG A lot of Devil's Club died by Kubo II yesterday; had a big Spruce tree blow down to process. It was beautiful, but no electronics were carried all day :) Rock on Gossaholics! (file photo)
