Received the large Gossman Survival Tool, and Tusker Lite this week, last week a BOLO in S7.
Did not realize what I was missing out on until I started putting them to usage spitting up some fuel wood, peeling bark off of stumps I’m about to split, and generally field work.
I absolutely love Scott's version of the bolo. It's not a MONSTER, but it can certainly chop and is versatile at 1/8" thickness. I haven't tried a BBT Light, but of the several large Gossmans I have (BBT 2.0, PFK, Kubo, Kubo II, 7", 8", and 9" BBTs), the Bolo is my personal favorite.
Mine's in A2, which I guess along with S7 has long been considered Scott's "signature" steel. He is a virtuoso at getting the most out of any steel though, it would seem. I think this is a product of lots of research, testing, and attention to detail. I'm not sure what his protocols and process are, but for sure he does a mean cryo quench.
