Mark and Tom get together to talk about the recent ICCE 2021 show in Fort Worth, TX. Tom tells us about his experience at the show and at the Stockyards. We also talk a bit about the “elephant in the room” with shows restarting around the country. Great chat about what sounds like a great show.
We check in with Sean on what may be the last of the Back to School Minisodes…or is it?!? Sean tells us about his most recent classes and things coming up, as well as how he’s been able to use some of what he’s learned. We spend a fair bit chatting about some cool things we’ve seen around the ‘net and folks we wanted to point out.
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.”
