Joe Flowers is a designer for Condor and TOPS, as well as proprietor of Bushcraft Global survival school. He is also one of those people you don’t so much as meet as you experience. I will spare you the details, but Joe once rode home from dinner at Blade Show in the trunk of my wife’s Saab. He’s that kind of guy. He streamed a video of himself carving pumpkins with his 3 year old daughter this weekend. And like anything involving him, Pumpkin carving with Joe Flowers looks to be a lot of fun.
He demonstrates several different Condor knives in the process. It is worth a watch if you have the time.
Some highlights include:
“Like a slain enemy on the field of battle”.
“Put some lotion on the Pumpkin! Before it gets the hose again”
“Don’t eat his face”
“Let’s pretend we’re in a prison and we’re about to SHANK that pumpkin!”
“It’s great for boar hunting, and to teach childrin safe knife use”
“I can’t make a Godzilla smile”
There are plenty more. “This has Parenting Win” written all over it.
I mentioned this in last night’s knife porn post, but if you want to share your pumpkin carving prowess with your fellow readers, either email me a photo at firstname.lastname@example.org or post it to our facebook page.
