Episode 10: Knife Porn or Porn Knives? ft. Tuch Knives

We've made it into double digits!

In tonight's episode we are joined by father and son duo William and Eric Tuch (of Tuch Knives). Tuch Knives makes some truly remarkable art pieces that way outside of our normal wheelhouse, which makes the conversation all that more enlightening. Tuch Knives are making their foray into the tactical world with their new "Axis" model, which makes up a bulk of the conversation.

You guys can find William and Eric at:

We were plagued by some technical difficulties during this episode and apologize for the occasional stuttering. We're looking into solutions to improving the audio quality when we have guests, which poses the biggest issue for a remotely recorded podcast like ours.

Episode 9: The Brian Nadeau VR Experience

On tonight's episode Dave invents a new kind of contraceptive, Brian moves to Colombia, Jake gives us some important sociological insights, and Levon airs his anti dude-ponytail bias. 

In this week's episode we cover a variety of topics, including how knifemakers should adapt to increasingly fickle buyers, whether grails really exist, and answer some viewer questions. But mostly it's just the kind of idiocy you might come to expect.

Episode 6

Episode 6: 50 Shades of (John) Gray

Today we are joined by knifemaker and Bigfoot lookalike John Gray. We talk a lot about his knives, and some of the more interesting anecdotes from his past (mostly involving bears). This was a pretty loose episode, so don't say we didn't warn you.

Wingding of the week: People funding knife-related Kickstarter/GoFundMe campaigns when they have no option of getting their money back (e.g., the Balzano/"Mars" situation). John provides a nice counterpoint of how it has been used successfully by reputable knifemakers.
