Episode 56: Derrick Obatake Pt.1

Our first guest of Season 4 is jeweler, craftsman, artist, knifemaker and all-around badass, Derrick Obatake of Steel Flame.  Derrick explains the core of Steel Flame and the community around it.  We chat about how he got into the industry and some of his perspective on growing a small business.  This one was long enough that we split it into two episodes, so stay tuned for Ep.57 where we finish our discussion.
