Episode 35

Episode 35: Duck Tales

After an unintended hiatus, the Knife Nuts are back with a pre-BLADE show episode in which we attempt to cover some of the going-ons in the knife community in the last two months, as well as talk about what we’re looking forward to at BLADE 2019. We cover a number of new releases, and are even joined by a special guest at the end (who also is responsible for the abrupt ending, sorry for the condensed episode length). Thank you all for bearing with us, and a special thank you to our Patreon supporters for their continued support. In tonight’s episode we giveaway two new Serge Panchenko knives to a lucky Patreon supporter!

As always, thank you to our sponsors PVK Vegas and Kizer Cutlery!
