Knife designer T.J. Schwarz of Schwarz DesignsKnife Designer T.J. Schwarz joins Bob “The Knife Junkie” DeMarco on episode #132 of The Knife Junkie podcast. Schwarz talks about growing up in a remote part of the country and how that affected his knife designs and how “beauty is second to function, but that both can exist in a truly well refined” knife.

Schwarz has already designed the Koenig Arius and Zenaida; the CRKT Caliga, Overland, Parascale and Thera; the Millet Torent and the Drop Perpetua. In addition, he’s started his own line, the Standard Issue: 1942 Line.

Definitely lots more to come from this knife maker! Stay tuned and see what’s next in store for T. J. Schwarz and Schwarz Designs!
