Episode 28: MODIFY MY BOKER!!! ft Geoff Blauvelt of TuffKnives
Tonight we are joined by custom knife maker Geoff Blauvelt of TuffKnives. Geoff's story is one that is both totally unique, and highly modern; he was key member of the early YouTube knife community, whose passion for knives lead to career modifying them, and later making his own custom knives. What is completely unique is that he documented all of it on YouTube at a time where no one else had done this before. His YouTube channel (Tuffthumbz) is still available if you want to watch the reality-show like progression of Geoff and other custom knife makers around him like Sebastjian Berenji (Borka Blades) and Michal Gavac (Gavko Knives).
We get the full story from Geoff, as well as some of the interesting up's and down's he has experienced in his career as a knife maker. A common theme throughout the episode is reminiscing about how different knife industry was even just 5 years ago.
In addition, we are proud to announce our new sponsor, Kizer Cutlery, who joins our established sponsor PVK Vegas. We are excited to be able to check out Kizer's new knives and will continue to provide our unfiltered, irreverent takes on their knives.
