It’s been a weird year, so we check in with Sean for an update on his journey back to school. Sean gives us an update, we pay our respects to damascus and knife maker Chris Marks, and we chat about some very cool and interesting stuff that we’ve come across lately.
We wrap up Season 2 with an update from Sean on his journey back to school, as he finishes up his second semester of study.
We chat about what makes a “good knife,” and offer some tips on what to look for when checking out a knife at a show or from a maker that is new to you. We hit both folders and fixed blades, in this mini that turned into a “halfisode.”

With the solitary world many custom makers function in, sometimes the need for a bit of maintenance goes beyond the machines and into the mind. Michael and Sean discuss some of these challenges and how they try to deal with them. Many of you may find similar things rattling around upstairs, knifemaker or otherwise. This one gets a bit personal, hope you find it enlightening or helpful in some way.
