Episode 05: Mark Stheiner

Our last panel intro is with collector Mark Stheiner. Mark gives us some insight into his background and how he got into knife collecting. We discuss design, knife shows, the knife community, and a shared set of interests that brought us all to a similar place.

Episode 04: Michael Burch

Our third knifemaker panel introduction digs into the life and background of Michael Burch. We learn about Michaels influences, what drives him to perfect his craft, and how his love for knives put him on a path to become a craftsman.

Episode 03: Sean Kendrick

The second of our deeper knifemaker panel introductions is focused on Sean Kendrick. Sean shares his background, his long-running love for knives and how his family is not only supportive, but a part of his business. He pulls no punches and is eloquent and well-spoken (as always) in this lengthy conversation with Tom, Mark and Michael.

Episode 02: Tom Krein

The first in a series of deeper introductions, this episode focuses on knifemaker Tom Krein.  We talk about life, family, knives and history with Tom, and in the end, we all come away knowing a bit more about Tom than we ever did before.

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.
