Sean takes Mark on a trip into the world of Warhammer 40k to talk edged weapons. What’s Warhammer 40k? Why are you talking about this on a knife podcast?! What in the name of Kharn is a chain axe!?? Also, NERDS!!!!?! Yes, yes – we answer those questions and more and talk about some crazy weaponry found in this grim, dark, future world.
We’re back! Tom talks with us about his experience at Blade Show Texas 2023. We get some insights about the show, the Fort Worth scene outside the show (it’s Tom, that means FOOD), and some cool stuff he saw out on the show floor. Sounds like a great time, listen along with us to get those insights first-hand.
We take a shot at our next History “Combosode” – a collection of shorter knife history spots, one from each of us on the team. Four legendary makers and a little bit about their stories: John Nelson Cooper, Bob Engnath, Bud Nealy and D. E. “Ed” Henry. Hope you find something interesting and maybe learn a cool piece of knife history along the way!
What’s the most used knife in your house? Chances are it’s a kitchen knife, and sometimes not a very good one! We can help, and with some of our picks, we can dream. In Episode 96, we each make some kitchen knife picks in a series of price ranges. From affordable to “OH DAMN” we cover a lot of territory as usual. Dust off the googlebox and join us for the ride.
After a short break, we’re back with the Kickoff of Season 6! We recap 2022 and talk about our experiences over the year, makers we made note of, and then got into what our plans and hopes are for 2023. Lots of new shows, some great makers now on our radar and a little reflection on where we all go from here.
