    Tom Nugent of Knives by Nuge joins Bob "The Knife Junkie" DeMarco on Episode 385 of The Knife Junkie Podcast (https://theknifejunkie.com/385 (https://theknifejunkie.com/385)). Tom is a recently retired police officer turned full-time knife maker. He has been an outdoorsman, with every free moment spent camping, fishing and hunting since a Boy Scout. Nugent's love for the outdoors and the survival skills he would carry all his life inspired the making of knives with which he could do the same.Tom made his first EDC knife in 2019 with a file and hacksaw on a tiny workbench which still occasionally gets used. Knives by Nuge combines Tom's years of game processing, wilderness survival skills and martial arts to create high-quality tools for camp and kitchen. According to Tom, each model's blade geometry, handle sculpting and over all fit-and-finish have been handcrafted and refined to perform as well as they look, and with 100% American-made materials, Nuge Knives are built to last decades and passed down to future generations. Find Knives by Nuge online at www.knivesbynuge.com (https://www.knivesbynuge.com) and on Instagram at https://instagram.com/knives_by_nuge (https://instagram.com/knives_by_nuge).Be sure to support The Knife Junkie and get in on the perks of being a Patron -- including early access to the podcast and exclusive bonus content, www.theknifejunkie.com/patreon (https://www.theknifejunkie.com/patreon).

Great Podcast... looking forward to it every week

Bob has a great thing going on. Has the best guest speaker list and is very friendly on his approach. One of my favorite podcasts on knives...

Puro Trash ,

Nonsense

You can’t make a list of best USA made blades without Medford considering they’re the best. Why even say the words cold steel?! Garbage from the 80s! Nonsense.
