A lively podcast with conversations about knives, knife making, food, small business and so much more!
Grow your small business or just listen for fun: Two knife makers (Kyle and Dan) give their perspective on knives and knife making. They get talented knife makers, knife influencers, chefs, engineers, and more on the mic so you can learn valuable insights from their lives.
We first met each other at Blade Show in Atlanta Georgia in 2012. We had been friends on Blade Forums for a little while before that. Dan had started his knife making apprenticeship at Fiddleback Forge and Kyle was just getting into knife making. Dan before meeting Kyle at the show invited him to come to visit the shop and see how they were making knives. Since then, they have become very good friends and love to share what they are working on with each other.

What is the show about?
The show is about two knife makers sharing their experiences about knives, knife making, and small business experiences. We will have on special guests on that will talk about how they use knives and their perspective on knives.
What is a knife?
The knife is one of the oldest tools man has ever created. These wonderful objects allow us to create a multitude of things from simple opening of a box, to saving someones life in surgery. In the beginning years knives were made out of stone or flint, but now they are made with highly engineered steel alloys.
Why is it important to have a quality knife?
A quality knife makes your job or task that much easier. For example when cooking, you can get by with a knife that is not very comfortable and that you have to sharpen a lot. But it makes cooking more enjoyable when you have a knife that fits your hand and stays sharp a long time.
