IMTS 2018 DAY 1

This is the first of the probably 3 videos on John’s trip to Chicago for IMTS 2018. Day 1 is all about diving deep into Swiss Lathes, learning about new technology, and reconnecting with the machining community. It’s awesome to get back out there, meet new people, and see people you haven’t seen since the last IMTS!

Back from IMTS!

MORE IMTS VIDEOS AND JOHN’S TALK AT MHUB COMING SOON!

John got back from IMTS about a week ago, and we’re already getting back in the swing of things (despite John pushing himself a little too hard, and getting sick). The team at Grimsmo knives kept everything running smoothly, and we even had some time to make some changes around the shop and reevaluate some processes.

Why we’re finally adding a sharpening choil

A sharpening choil is a little indent on the blade of a knife that helps make sharpening easier and more consistent. We’re not really known for doing things the easy way, but sometimes we need to make our process more easily repeatable and teachable.
