    Zac Wingard of Wingard Wearables - The Knife Junkie Podcast Episode 226

    Zac Wingard of Wingard Wearables - The Knife Junkie Podcast Episode 226

    Zac Wingard of Wingard Wearables joins Bob "The Knife Junkie" on episode 226 of The Knife Junkie Podcast. Zac has always been passionate about historical edged weapons with a special love for tomahawks.
    Wingard Wearables creates EDC items out of weapons not thought of for everyday carry, like tomahawks, spears and an implement called the "Quill." One thing that many current-day tomahawk makers get wrong (and that Wingard focuses on getting right) is weight. Unlike axes and hatchets, tomahawks are meant to be very light and nimble in the hand and easy to throw.
    Each Wingard Wearable is made in America by skilled blacksmiths and bladesmiths and five small businesses across three states. And these tomahawks and other implements are not just weapons, but also intended for utility use.
    You can find Wingard Wearables online at https://www.wingardwearables.com, on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/wingard_wearables and on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0bYrEpIJLZcmvabpoSnpEg/videos.

    Ben Stark of Stark Creations - The Knife Junkie Podcast Episode 224

    Custom knife maker Ben Stark of Stark Creations joins Bob "The Knife Junkie" on episode 224 of The Knife Junkie Podcast. Stark's knife making career started when Ben was 15, through woodworking -- one of his grandfather's hobbies -- with the use of simple tools and online tutorials in both knife forums and YouTube.
    Ben's first knives were well received on Instagram so he decided to make his hobby a business and started Stark Creations, which specializes in EDC fixed blades and kitchen knives. Stark says "knife making comes with the satisfaction of creating something that can be functional and used for many years to come."
    You can find Stark Creations online at https://www.starkcreationsus.com, on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/starkknives and on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/starkknives.

    Bob "The Knife Junkie" experienced his first Blade Show this weekend (June 4-6, 2021) and he discusses the experience on episode 222 of The Knife Junkie Podcast -- as well as highlighting his purchases! That's right. Bob thought he could go to the largest knife show in the world and come home empty handed. Ha!
    The Knife Junkie also has several special interviews in this week's show -- from the Blade Show floor -- just a sampling of the knife makers, knife designers and knife afficianados he had a chance to meet at Blade Show 2021.

    - Bastien Cove - Bastinelli Creations
    - Michael Martin - American Blade Works
    - Ben Belkin - Jack Wolf Knives
    And while he went into Blade not wanting to purchase anything, but to "just meet the makers," The Knife Junkie feel short on that goal, and did come away with a few purchases. But really, not that many considering the smorgasbord of knives in front of him this weekend. Here's what The Knife Junkie came home with:
    - Collar Stay Knife - Hayes USA
    - Micarta Scakes for TRM Atom
    - Fixed Blade (Scalpel) - Dylan Grace
