Sharing this post from Chad, Forged in Fire Contestant who wants another chance!
As any of you that have been following our blog will know, I was on the History Channel show Forged In Fire last year. I have been smithing now for a few years. I am self (and YouTube) taught. I have sold a good number of hand forged knives and all my customers seem to […]Looking for redemption
Enjoyed this short video showing some ABS ((American Bladesmith Society) Knives as well as many historical knives. Allan Newberry a Journeyman Smith with the American Bladesmith Society and a Forged in Fire Champion takes us through the Knife Exhibit in the Museum. Knives by Bill Moran and James Black are shown.
A really good video from Allen Neberry showing some of the tests run at the Arkansas Knife Show. I am sharing this because anyone interested in Knifemaking can see what the competition is doing!
Here we get a chance to see at least a few of the product announcements for TOPS. I always watch for what they have because I do like many of their designs.
My friend Fred from Case does a great job previewing a few new knives for WRCase for 2018. Of particular interest are the collaboration knives with Tony Bose as well as some exciting new fixed blade knives from Danial Winkler.
Some exciting new knives from Gerber. Check this video from our friends at BladeHQ
Recently our friends at Blade HQ had a chance to sit down with Eric Glasser, son of Spyderco founder Sal, at Shot Show. Spyderco has some very exciting new and improved models that I am quite happy to see. As many of you know Spyderco tries very hard to maintain quality in Spyderco’s Colorado factory and in its contract factories in China, Taiwan, Japan and Italy. They pride themselves on listening to customers. They are not the largest knife company out there but they do put out a good quality product, even venturing into some fixed blades.
Hope you enjoy this one!
We get a look at the new lineup for 2018 for CRKT and as in past years they have relied on designers to produce designs they can put into production. For the most part CRKT knives are inexpensive and imported. They usually make a good choice for an everyday carry. Of particular interest is the MK 16 which they have redone in a Framelock style and are using Sandvik. steel.
Also CRKT is rolling out some knives using the basic design they have called Field Strip Technolohy originally designed by legendary knife designer Ken Onion. It’s a about a 20 minute video but if you have interest in CRKT and enjoy their knives it’s worth a look as these knives will be or are already reaching store shelves.
