BLADE SHOW 2018, BABY!

Oh how times have changed since just one year ago; the team has grown to 6 people, Erik’s beard is shorter (barely), there’s music in the videos, and we make pens now! We can’t wait to go back next year and see what’s changed, but the one thing that never changes (thank goodness) is that it’s ALWAYS a huge nerd fest!

Enjoy!

Blade Show CLICKbait 2018

We are SO happy that we got the Saga pen ready in time for Blade Show! The reaction that we got there from all of you was fantastic, and we can’t wait to get them up as a product on the website.

In this episode of Saga Saturday, you’ll get to see a ton of reactions to the pen, lots of clicking, an interview with Jason from Prometheus Lights, and a sneak peak into a new Damasteel product!

Enjoy!

The KeyBar Story w/ CEO Mike Taylor

John and “KeyBar Mike” have been friends for years now, and Mike is happy to share the inspiring story of how KeyBar got started. One of the most interesting things about Blade is meeting all the people, hearing their stories, and realizing that everyone took a different path to get where they are today.

Hint: Mike’s story starts with carving a pumpkin under water.

Enjoy!

BLADE 2018 w/ ALEC STEELE and more awesome makers!

What better way to kick off our flood of Blade 2018 videos than with a video that’s mostly ALEC STEELE?

Alec contacted John a few months ago to tell him about his love for the podcast (The Business of Machining), and now here we are meeting him and talking knives, history, and business. We also met many more amazing makers at the show, so here’s a peek at some of them too.

Pearl Inlays Pt. 2

Wondering if we forgot about Norseman #1000? Never. The pearl inlays are just a little more of a struggle than we realized. In this episode John introduces his “blue tape method” to secure the inlays to the palette. Will it work? You’re just gonna have to watch to find out for yourself. Hint: stay tuned for a part 3

Mother of Pearl talk starts at 2:54

Enjoy!

Working w/ Mother of Pearl Inlays Pt. 1

Welcome back to another Shop Life! It seems we can’t make these things fast enough, as there’s always so much stuff happening around the shop. Even though we’re somewhere around knife #1120, we’re also still working on knife #1000. We can’t wait to show it off at Blade Show 2018 in June!

Also in this episode, Erik’s tumbler stops working, more 3D printer improvements, a coolant coalescer update, Clara learns how to use slo-mo, and we get new sinks in the workshop!

Enjoy!

The CRUNCH

In this episode of Saga Saturday, John makes the final touches to the pen before Blade Show. We’re so happily surprised that we got it all done with just a couple weeks to spare! It was awesome to meet hundreds of you at the show, and we’ll have some awesome videos about that soon.
