    Every Day Carry (EDC) pocket/necker. This was an idea I had, that Scott was able to perfectly bring to reality, 6.5 inches overall, in D2 and Buffalo Horn!

    [​IMG]

    Jigged Bone Hunter, this was my first knife that I bought from Scott, over 3 years ago I think, 8.5 inches overall, in 5160 and red jigged bone.

    Kevin, you poor fellow. It looks like all those beautiful knives are very heavy and hard to handle all at once. For your own sake, you really should give one or two to somebody else. Nobody in particular. Really....

    Just maybe another dude from CT....

    Perhaps a guy who also happens to be a moderator at Bladeforums...

    Maybe even, say, er, the Wilderness forum moderator.

    You know, nobody in particluar...:D

    This is my go to knife. Tusker 8" blade, 8670M steel, lignum vitae scales. I've used this one extensively and i'm impressed with it's performance. Edge holding is great.

    Awesome pics. Well, I don't have a Gossman, but I did get some steel and some knowledge from him to build me a blade, it looks like a Gossman and was inspired by him. Here she be almost done.

    Here's one of my favorite pics. It's part of two dead scrub pines that I took down with a Tusker and my version of Beck's WSK. These trees were dead for about 5 years and hard as hell.

    Thanks Scott, I might have to send her in to your for your magic touch. I'm having a bitch of a time getting a nice usable edge and my arm has grown 2 inches in diameter sanding the damn thing. I'll email you for a cost analysis.

    tracker, that is actually a striker I make for ferro rods. I don't normally put a sharp edge on them but Kev wanted it sharpened. The Razorback mark is a long story :rolleyes: I use to be Razorback Knives. It was my user name here on BF.
    Rob, send it to me, I'll fix you up. Once these blades are hardend and tempered, they are a bitch to do by hand. Hell, when I grind D2 after HT, it wears on grinding belts. D2 is very wear resistant.

  17. These were going to leave the collection, but I like them too much. I've got a Tusker too, pic is somewhere on Jerzeedevil. Got a PSK with Scott, he's going to make a kydex sheath for it, and put green micarta scales on it.

  18. My Tusker with desert ironwood scales I picked up at the 2006 Chesapeake Knife Show. A2, with a custom choil. In the middle!;)
    [​IMG]

    Here is a better pic of the handle. The scales looked great when I gave them to Scott, he made them look perfect:thumbup:!
    [​IMG]

    I got to watch this bad boy get grinded out. The man took a bar of steel and shaped it into a knife. Didn't even have to draw the blade shape on the handle, threw on a respirator and away he went. Only part he marked was the choil. Pretty cool.

    Oh yeah, he also took the coating off of the Camp Tramp.
