Welcome to Mark of the Maker!

Welcome to Mark of the Maker podcast!  Our show is a panel discussion with renowned custom knife makers Tom Krein, Sean Kendrick, Michael Burch and hosted by Mark Stheiner.  The format is much like a group of friends, sitting down in The Pit at Blade Show, talking about life, knives and knifemaking.

We have lots of things planned for the show and hope you are looking forward to it as much as we are.  There will be topical discussions, conversations, and interviews with knifemakers, collectors and notable personalities in and around the custom knife world.

If you’d like to engage with the crew via social media, please feel free to join us on Facebook or Instagram!

Mark of the Maker Mugs from Deneen Pottery

Our friends at Deneen Pottery put together another batch of MotM Mugs! These German Tankards are around 16 ounces, so you can use them for a healthy cup of coffee or a pint of your favorite brew. They are Navy Blue with Cinnamon White glaze, in a limited hand-numbered run of 75 pieces. The new larger mugs are $40 each + Shipping. Tom Krein and his crew are handling these, so hit the web store on Tom’s website to grab one.

Episode 37: It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

It’s that time of year again! We kick this one off with some silky smooth tones from the one and only Sean Kendrick. Then we head off into making some Christmas gift picks for one another from three categories, from under $50 stocking stuffer to full custom. You or your significant other might just hear a great holiday gift idea in this one, there are some cool picks and we might just include one or two that you aren’t familiar with.
