An interesting show this week — we’re talking about making knives. But more specifically, talking about getting starting in knife making without breaking the bank.

What must you have at an absolute minimum to make a knife. And roughly how much will it cost yo to get in the game.

We’re also taking your calls – do you make knives, how much did it cost you to start, what are the absolute minimum number and type of tools to get underway, and any other advise to wannabe knife makers looking to get started?

Call The Knife Junkie listener line at 724-466-4467 and let us know.
