Chad Nichols of Nichols Damascus Steel joins us for this episode. We talk about Chad’s background, how he got into knives, and ultimately what led him to become of the key suppliers of damascus steel and other materials to the knife industry.
Yes, we’re back! We talk quarantine, knives and take some listener questions in our first episode after a bit of a hiatus. It’s been a crazy time for all of us and we hope you are all staying safe and healthy.
Knifemaker and all around good guy Sal Manaro joins us for some good conversation about his path into knifemaking. We talk history, shop and techniques and still manage to have a few laughs along the way. You won’t want to miss this one!
We’re happy to finally offer you these custom Mark of the Maker challenge coins! These are a great way to support the show and be part of the story. The coins are finished in antique silver and custom shaped in the style of our logo. They are right around 2″ x 2″ in size. The front carries the logo itself and the rear reminds us that although we are all makers or collectors – everybody has their own story.
Mark of the Maker Challenge Coins are $40 each, shipped to US addresses.
