We had a great holiday but it's good to be back. We had a great conversation with Michael Vagnino. I hope you enjoy this look into a guy who's been making knives for 20 years. Michael can be found at mvknives.com. Thanks for listening!
For this episode, we discussed grail knives. What is a grail? What does the term mean? There was a lot of good discussion around the topic. I apologize for my voice in this one, came down with a cold...
I also launched some shirts that can be purchased featuring my logo as well as some stickers. Thanks for the support! Shirts can be found here
Today's episode is yet another interview. You guys seem to enjoy them so ask and we shall deliver. Jesse is a great guy, I got to meet him at Blade Show 2016 and it made me want one of his knives that much more. Richard is a huge fan so he spent the entire episode shilling for Jesse, it's all good though. Auston could not be here for this episode but he'll be back for the next one.
Episode 16 is Gavin Hawk of Hawk Knives. Gavin and his father bring out some of the most innovative designs in the industry. Their approach is more of an inventor or engineer. I hope you enjoy it!

The newest knife to hit the market is their Deadlock, a truly zero-bladeplay double action OTF. Awesome. I included a couple videos below, they give a great look at their unique setup.
This episode we talked about some new things going on in the knife industry and things we learned. We talked about some new Kizer Vanguard series knives, Richard talks about the Kabar Jarosz folder and the Extrema Ratio BF1, what is on our radar, ZT and how Richard got it wrong, Keybar's, patent infringement and KAI USA, stupid finger spinners, the Spyderco Nirvana, and much more!
Be prepared... This episode is a more casual podcast. We talked about guns, politics, our favorite YouTube channels, and some knife content. I hope you enjoy!
There are a few changes that are coming to the show and they debut here. First we've decided to let our frequent guest Richard have a more active presence on the podcast. I'm not sure why but I have a feeling we'll regret doing it... Also, we've brought on our first sponsor. Tune in to the show to hear the details.
This episode is a conversation with Olamic Cutlery founder Eugene Solomonik. Eugene is a great guy and we had a good time discussing his company and why he does what he does (I'm looking at you patchwork edition Wayfarer)
After a long tired weekend, we recap our experience at the show.
Thanks everyone for listening in. As always, feedback is welcome.
Here we go! Blade show is officially upon us and we brought back a familiar voice to guest this episode. Be forewarned that this is a much more loose, casual episode as there is no main topic and not much preparation. Enjoy! (or don't... I wont be offended)
For this episode we wanted to take a stab at the term "midtech". We invited a special guest who I have personally been watching on YouTube for many years. I hope you enjoy!
This episode is just a general EDC discussion. We talk a lot about the gear we carry and the mentality behind them. The audio was a little funky so I apologize if there are some volume discrepancies. Enjoy!
This week's episode is an interview with one of the only true high end knife collectors that exists on social media. MindlessMark07 is in a class of collector that is rarely seen displaying his wares for all to enjoy. For that we thank him.
A nice trinity of panelists for this episode. We discuss how we maintain, store, and sharpen our knives. We also discussed some gun topics, if that's your thing.
I hope you enjoy!
The much anticipated episode 5 is here! Auston and I are eager to be back and in the fray. This episode is all about Shot Show 2016. Thanks for all our listeners patience as we get back in action!
For this episode, Derrick from Knives Ship Free was kind enough to stop by for a chat about knife sales and dealers. We thought it was an appropriate topic since he's, you know, a knife dealer. It was great having Derrick on so listen in and enjoy!
Another great (and long) conversation about Blade Show. This episode focused on the happenings of the show. Not just knives but the experience itself. Richard (Xmachiavelli) returned to share his insights and experiences. Enjoy!
This weeks episode is all about the year thus far prior to Blade Show. We discuss a LOT of content; knives we like, knives we don't like, knives we are indifferent about. Lean back and enjoy the conversation because this was a long one. There was so much content, we had to invite a special guest!
Disclaimer: There is a bit of a delay with the skype call. I promise I'm not constantly cutting them off.....
Introducing The Modern Neanderthal Podcast! This week me and Auston discuss imported knives, some of the pros and cons as well as the trends and where the future is heading.
