AJ Swezey from Gold Creek Rifles has been interested in knives since he was a boy. A year or so ago he was able to learn how to make them from his cousin who has been making knives for many years, and now AJ makes and sells hand made knives. He enjoys making things with his own hands and creating a good product for others.
Listen to hear a basic description of what you have to do to make a knife and become a master knifesmith, reasons why buying a hand made knife is better than purchasing one from a store, knife care tips to keep your knife in good shape longer, how camel bones and mammoth fossilized ivory are used with knives, how he used his chipmunk neck knife and bowie knife while he helped fight the Carlton Complex fire [the largest fire in Washington state history at this time], what pattern welded Damascus steel is, and more!
