Episode 117: Andrew Bawidamann

Designer, creator and Friend of The Show Andrew Bawidamann joins us for a chat about his work, how he got into knives, and how he found his way to what he’s doing now. Andrew’s path is a unique one, from fashion to marketing, to his passion in art, and into knives, holsters, and The Doughboy.

Check out the latest from our friends at Giant Mouse Knives and their new GM11 and GMP11 models, as well as the new Biblio XL, which is receiving rave reviews.

The 12-part video masterclass “A Sharp Life” is also available now with lifetime access and is another great resource for any knifemaker.
