Nightly Knife Porn: 5 from the Grinder edition

Good evening all. I have some other posts I should probably be working on, but I found myself surfing Instagram instead. But my muse did give me an idea for a great topic tonight – checking in with makers who have participated in our 5 from the Grinder series.

For those new to TTAK, 5 from the Grinder is our 5 question interview series for knifemakers. It is the same 5 questions, covering influences, philosophy, and and overview of their knives.  We combine these answers with photos of the makers’ work, and links to their social media and website.

I haven’t run a new installment of 5ftG lately because frankly, all of my leads have dried up. I can start cold emailing smiths whose work catches my eye, but it is much better when someone has cracked the door for us. So if you know a maker who would like to participate in the series, please send an email of introduction and copy thetruthaboutknives@gmail.com. I can take it from there.

If you would like to include the invitation post, please feel free.

Of course if you are a maker yourself, please feel free to drop me a line. Don’t be intimidated by some of the makers who have gone before. As long as you are making and selling knives at at least a part-time level, you qualify. We love introducing makers who are just beginning their journey, it is one of the things that makes comparisons across our entire 5ftG archive so interesting.

Instead of offering commentary, I am going to link the makers’ 5ftG submission. I am obviously not going to cover everyone tonight, but I definitely revisit this theme going forward.

Will Manning of Heartwood Forge led things off with our featured photo.

Here’s to making good choices. Top or bottom?
