We are joined by collector and maker Andy Frankart for a discussion about knives, collecting, and his perspective as the maker of probably the hottest and most collectable non-knife EDC items out there. Andy shares insights with us about how he came into the knife community, some specifics of some great pieces in his own knife collection, and what it was like to see his brand explode. Fun stories, some personal history and a great conversation.
In our first minisode, we explore influences. Sean dives into a savage scene from one of his favorite books and we talk about how the knife in this scene influenced his work at the time. We’ll use these short minisodes to help fill in some gaps about influences and their role in forming a knifemaker and their aesthetic.
