Custom Knife Maker Chuck Gedraitis – The Knife Junkie Podcast Episode 218

Knife maker Chuck Gedraitis joins Bob “The Knife Junkie” on episode 218 of The Knife Junkie Podcast. Gedraitis got his first knife from his grandfather when he was 5-years-old and was immediately hooked. He started in knife making by taking apart his mother’s kitchen knives — his parents thought there was something “wrong” with him.

Gedraitis has been making knives since he was 16 and is best known for his one-of-a-kind folding and automatic knives. He uses mostly Damascus blade steel and exotic handle materials like exotic woods, stag, pearl and various ivories.

You can find Gedraitis on Instagram and at Blade Show at Table 5E.
