Happy New Year 2017

It’s been an interesting year to say the least. For sure I am looking forward to a new year and a fresh start to my blog. Yes, I still like knives, have learned much more about them. Many changes are occurring in the knife industry. Some old knife companies are under new leadership. There are lots of new designs and always exciting  collaborations in production folding knives.  The World of Custom knives is growing with new names, new talent and it is just amazing. 

Knife magazines have changed and will change more before its all over. We lost at least one knife magazine in the last year. In the new year I hope to blog about these magazines and their content.

Knife shows  on TV like the Series, Forged in Fire, with a record breaking 3rd season are still going strong. The Cutlery Corner is still selling knives on TV. Smoky Mountain Knifewerks have made a try at a comeback to TV by selling knives on FaceBook Live or through Roku, hosted by none other than the Round Man with the square deal, Mike Polotowski, the host of the Saturday Night Knife and Gun Show. 

I hope to comment on all of it and throw in a few reviews, sarcasm and funny (maybe only to me) memes. Writing just brings me such joy, I can’t describe it any other way. Thanks for following!

  2. hey, I got a great adventure book for you to read, true story :the lost city of the monkey god, by douglas preston, having spent some time in Honduras and El Salvador courtesy of Uncle Sugar, the knife and machetes come in handy down there.

    thanks for all the encouragement, blessings.

  3. found an antique place in this really small town in Texas, the guy had dozens of old knives he bought when he was a young man, he’s 98. it was tough to buy just one. bought some old kut masters, and some case knives, blessings


    • Always love the old knives, as they have all the old stories to tell. I have several and what amazes me, despite the age and with a sharpening, they cut like they were brand new. Glad you were able to snag a few classics! Blessings
