Episode 81: Les George

Knifemaker and Designer Les George joins us for a great chat about knives and knifemaking. Please pardon the audio quality on Les’ track early in the episode, it cleans up as you listen on. We talk about Les’s experience in the military and making a knife while overseas – plus folders, daggers, midtechs and spend some time talking about mentors and their influence.

Episode 80: Spring Camping Picks

We always have a lot of fun with our “picks” episodes and this one’s no exception. The task was to pick a camping destination, an item or two for your pocket, a fixed blade on your belt, a pack knife or axe and something that launches projectiles. Lots of creativity in this one and some camping destinations that are a little outside the box.
