A lively podcast with conversations about knives, knife making, food, small business and so much more!
This show is about two good friends getting together and talking about knives. We will be talking mainly with each other about knives, knife making, and small business related topics and hope to have on guests to share experiences with food, chef life, and other knife makers.
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 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.
