It’s The Knife Junkie’s first interview episode and today’s show features special guest Ian Luwis, a fellow knife lover, knife carrier and martial artist. Bob was excited about doing an interview show and really wanted Ian to be the first guest, so we’re glad we could make it happen.

The guys talk knives, as well as martial arts — various styles — the two types of training (self-perfection vs. self-preservation) and how and why Ian got into martial arts. And you’ll learn about some of the famous names he’s trained with, such as Paul Vunak, Fred Mastro, Guro Dan Innosanto, Doug Marcaida and Sebastian Vandenberg.

There aren’t any show segments this week — all interview — and we hope you like it!

After you listen to the interview, if you have any questions, be sure to call The Knife Junkie listener line at 724-466-4467 and let us know.

Knives are meant to be felt not seen ... that's just one of the nuggets of wisdom on Episode #08 of The Knife Junkie Podcast. Listen at #knives #knifecollecting Share on X
