Automatic Knives in My Collection – The Knife Junkie Podcast Episode 235

On the mid-week supplemental episode of The Knife Junkie podcast (episode 235), Bob “The Knife Junkie” DeMarco takes a look at the automatic knives in his collection.

Bob starts the show with his “pocket checks” — the Hinderer XM-18 (reground) Spanto and the Lionsteel Gitano — while in his “state of the collection,” he’s got four knives to talk about. And in Knife Life News, Hoo Knives is back in the news with its second UK-friendly folder.

On episode 235 of #theknifejunkie #podcast, I take a look at my small collection of automatic knives in my collection, as well as what's new in my state of the collection, a pocket check and more! Click To Tweet
