    hello. i'm new to gossman knives. i've had several from different makers here on BF and i gotta say that scott's knives are my favorites. i've pretty much widdled down my fixed collection to just these two w/ the exception of a couple of knives that i simply can't part with. on to the pics:

    this is my new tusker companion. this was a custom order that scott was awesome enough to make to my specs. i almost wasn't able to get it. glad i did.




    ambitiously attempting to get through this log for our fire. the knife performed wonderfully. bites real deep as you can see from the pic.


    after some fuzz sticks (which i forgot to take pics of) and batoning for fire prep, it was on to dinner duty. this knife is a GREAT slicer. it's 5/32 thick, but the geometry is awesome.




    all in all, this knife is very comfortable for my smallish/medium hands - the first knife i've actually owned that fits me like a glove. it will see so much more love on this summer's camping trips for sure.

    i also picked up a micro tusker in a spear point config some months back. this was actually my first gossman. i got it to use primarily for my backpacking trips because of its size and to take with me fishing. here she is on one of my trips:

    lunch duty:


    and of course, trout fishing. i have a dedicated b&t, but for some reason, i really like taking the gossman. i think its robust size and thickness gives me a better sense of security when cleaning out fish. i'm pretty rough on my knives, so the thinner more delicate blades usually get pretty beat up.


    just added a pic of a forced siracha patina i put on the utility/camp knife.

    My first Gossman (certainly not my last!). Just received her recently, haven't had a chance to really put her to work but looking forward to it.

    You're welcome, proud to show her off. And you can count me in for another order (or two) as long as you keep making them.
