Five Knife Groupings – The Knife Junkie Podcast Episode 261

On the mid-week supplemental episode of The Knife Junkie podcast (episode 261), Bob “The Knife Junkie” DeMarco looks at five knife groupings — Road Trip, Camping/Survival, Old School, Strictly Tactical, and Trusted and True. Be sure to check out the show notes below for the list of knives talked about on this episode.

Bob starts the show with his “pocket check” of knives — the Hinderer Knives Eklipse and the GEC #48 Improved Tractor in Green Pickle Bone — while in Knife Life News, Benchmade releases four more gorgeous kitchen knives and he looks at the Best in Show category winners at Blade Show West.

And in his “State of the Collection,” Bob looks at his Monterey Bay Knives Turbo, designed by Peter Carey (on Loan from MBK), and his new (to him) Cigar Box for his Camp/Scout Knives.
