Video: Walter Sorrells discusses the Tanto

It seems like there are common questions that are voiced by Knife Knovices, among them “What is Damascus“, “Can you tell me about blade shapes?”. TTAK’s own Knifemaker in Residence, Will Woods has touched on many of these with his “Ask a Knifemaker” posts (hyperlinked above).

Knifemaker Walter Sorrells has taken to a different format to answer these same questions. (here, here)He is a prolific videographer who takes to his YouTube Channel to answer these same questions with excellent visual aides or actual demonstration of techniques. I missed this one when it debuted last month. Like Will has done here, Walter sets out to explain what exactly is a tanto.

The two formats compliment each other well.



  1. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. However think about if you added some great images or videos
    to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this site could definitely be one of
    the very best in its niche. Great blog!
