something like this which you know we got candy wrappers i was
inspired by some candy about intranet and in your
city which whenever a to the wrapper was so
beautiful and so uh… a friend of mine one day i said why
don’t you just do itself in in the ninety-eight unlike can represen why not this is the date that it does and i was one of the things you know the
answer is and so the grand juries this is great for like a c decision here

of quality and artistry were you surprised when you saw denies

were and there’s nothing like it on the
market uh… that sometimes hunting knives
skinner can go kind of uh… unique instance
like that but it was that as you can tell that the handles a response from
the quality of the steel he was using it did it blew me away actually kinda
right out the back we start off with a lot of the like

that which is very unique very neat and uh… he keeps getting battered toots i at
this time please keep me more than five minutes instead of radar and he’s not

for the actual way what does that mean comets mealtime steel but use the kind
of up to our quality almost get like a pitino on it it it’s a steel is kind of gone away to a
lot more the stainless steel products but this is uh… kind of an artist in
steel that’s coming back a lot of the high and chapter clamoring to find it begins so you took
his knowledge of actually being in the shop world and and put the somethin you
know from the functional like that hello bangalore allotment possibly go three nights of the reagan here may ban gay about full-time looking to

backstory a bunny was younger and he would visit brien fan and kinda got to
know that knife maker there and i thought it was fantastic edit these

bit at i’m really happy for him incubated they found a niche in the market and
it’s really exciting to have someone that is a craft and you know himself and
doing that right here in st they denied is like a piece of american
heritage say so like there are these huge names not making across united
states and then yet may who is kind of thinking that
legacy in bringing in other styles and reimold
worms and i think that’s the part of the or that i really appreciate that fires future plans include sales trips
