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!

Episode 41: Get Off My Lawn!

This one started out with the working title “Knife Mythbusters” and just sort of rolled off into a series of rants mixed in with some myth busting. The topic evolved as we went along but hopefully you find it somewhat entertaining and maybe a little bit educational as well.

Episode 40: Three Knives You Should Know About

This time we walk through some knives and makers that we think you should know about.  Some of you will be familiar with some of these knives or makers, but hopefully there’s something in here for everyone.  Get your Google lookup ready, this one had the working title “The Rabbit Hole Episode.”  Hope you enjoy it!
