Water

Love the show, I have learned a ton. but it sounds like there is a fish tank or done water trickle in the background which is quite annoying.

The guys down under turn the world right-side up!

How do you make knife making, Blacksmithing and poor tastes in music (jk) interesting and entertaining? Have Alex and Sam discuss them on a podcast! They have a great dynamic, funny and authentic as they share their knowledge, experience and personal adventures. One of my favorite podcasts!

Great podcast

Excellent hosts sharing knowledge and advice for Blacksmith’s and knife makers. Also the occasional guest to stir things up. Great podcast with great personalities.
