    Shop Music Thread- what are you listening to today?

    Been binge listening to a lot of Brad Paisley’s guitar instrumentals cause I’d love to be able to play at least a little like that one day. Also listen to a lot of podcasts like Ed Mylett, The Art of Manliness, The Way I heard it with Mike Rowe, EntreLeadership, and Knifetalk among others. Music...

    Makers Mark / Logo - On The Left or Right?

    KITH for Austin Thrasher

    @Nick Schreiber If it’s not too late to make a handle request, I’m really liking the texturing you do on some of the knives you have posted in your photo gallery. I’d love to have that style handle on my KITH blade!
