I just finished up a new article on Scott Gossmanís PSK knife. I put this small fixed blade with a custom leather neck sheath by Danny Kuehn. This sheath has a neat leather pocket for various small additional kit.






The main article is over at the outdoors-magazine. This is still a bit of a work in progress for the pouch contents, but let me know what you think.

Nice article!

Scott does great work!

But I'm completely unbiased! wink



1. EDC in D2 and Buffalo Horn
2. Nessmuk in O1 and Ironwood
3. Hunter in 5160 and jigged bone

And I have a Kephart in A2 and a Mini-Nessmuk in O1 and Elk Stag due sometime early next year.

I think I'm in love. That seems like a very practical blade.

I like that blade an sheath combo. Though, mine wouldn't have a survival kit in front. It would have a good SAK (like an Alox soldier), a small DMT sharpening stone, and a firesteel/ferro-rod or two.

That way I've got a fixed blade, my multi-use folder, a sharpening stone, and a way to make fire (basically my most important things) all in one package. That way, I could just grab it and go, knowing where everything is.

The only bad thing with that is, if you loose it, you loose everything. So I would probably end up carrying another knife and maybe a Bic or ferro-rod on my person somewhere.

I'm a little concerned about the neck thong. Unless I missed something (not all that uncommon), I see no "breakaway" device on it, so it could be possible to suffer some neck/throat injury, should the thong become hung up on something at the worst possible moment...

nice but it really needs a handle..i've been trying out
different knives on our "dog hikes".not a walk but
a hour and half stomp thru the woods..to test out each one
in some simple ways..shaving a stick for tinder is a good
test..a Mora knife with a good wood handle plowed thru
the stick while a over sized folding pocket knife with
the thinner scales was a hard grip that hurt my hand when
i did the same thing--

Thanks.... grin


The braided neck cord does not have a breakaway device. But if it was braided shorter it could be put together with either a piece of plastic tubing or even a couple of weak stitches if this was desired. I went for the utility of a long cord...both to serve as a quick handle wrap for the knife or as cord for any number of other uses.
