Case Knives, BladeBanter’s Orion Knives’ Solaris Kickstarter Knife, Bark River V-44 Bowie and More! — The Knife Junkie Podcast Episode 141

On the mid-week supplemental episode of The Knife Junkie podcast (Episode #141), The Knife Junkie covers Case Knives partnering with Winkler Knives & Kyle Lamb for their new fixed blade Hunter as well as David Kam, known as YouTube’s BladeBanter, who has started Orion Knives with the fully funded Kickstarter project, the Solaris knife.

Plus Bob talks about his new birthday knife he got from his parents, the Bark River V-44 Bowie with Green Micarta Moran-style handle, and of course had to mention the Attention2Detail Mercantile custom A2D knife he bought himself for a birthday present.

Also Bob and Jim talk about Knife Day, celebrated on Monday, Aug. 24, as well as Bob gives quick audio reviews of two knives in the Apex passaround group — the Midgards Messer Viking and an Asheville Steel Paragon.
