    Stu Shank is the Co-Founder and CEO of Reiff Knives, a new direct to consumer, family-owned American made knife company,

Top Notch Content with Actionable Tips/Advice

With so many podcasts on the market today, it is so hard to break through the noise. I was recently turned on to The Rewind Gear Podcast by a friend of mine, and after tuning into a couple of episodes, it has made it’s way into my weekly routine! I literally leave 1 un-listened episode in my queue simply because I hate the thought of running out of Seth content! Keep it up!!

I Really Needed Something Like This

I like the outdoors but find it frustrating to pick up all the gear and gadgets to make it fun to be outdoors. That’s why I like this pod. Funny and informative.
