The First Tool The Kris, Blade Show and COVID-19 Knife Life News The Knife Junkie Podcast Episode 95

It’s the midweek supplemental episode of the knife, junkie, podcast! I’m Jim the knife, newbie person and I’m Bob the knife junkie DeMarco, welcome to the show, welcome to the knife: junkie, podcast the place for knife newbies like myself, a knife junkies like yourself to learn all about knives and knife collecting our midweek show where we get To dive deep into happenings in the knife world talk about knife news, other stuff, going on and Bob one thing we wanted to start the show with before we kind of get into the knife life news segment, as well as our first tool segment this week was About a what do you call it crowdsourcing thing with bone, daddy blade works that we had talked about away.

I think at least last week, yeah that’s right. A couple weeks back we talked about the bone. Daddy blade works axis, a hand, axe knife, multi-tool, it’s a an unusual multi-tool because it doesn’t fold, it is a fixed blade knife that has a number of different hand holds with it’s a very unique shape that also attaches very handily to some sort of a any Sort of improvised haft and you can turn it into an axe, it’s a really cool looking product and – and it seems you know just from looking at it like it – would be a great sort of piece of kit to have for survival.

You know in your car and your in your bug out bag or in your in your camping gear. Anyway, Sean Holman he’s the head of bone. Daddy blade blade works. He does this with his wife. It’s cool a small family company got back in touch with me to. Let me know that they are fully funded, actually they’re over fully funded and they’re. There’s still about a week left on there. I believe it’s a Kickstarter campaign to get this axis into production.

So that’s really good news: not not every crowdsourcing project gets funded, so it’s really great to hear when something does get funded, especially when it’s a small family business and it’s such a unique and interesting different sort of product to bring to the knife market right now. As you said, not only great because it’s a small business but obviously we’re biased, because it’s a it’s a knife world product, exactly it’s got to be funded, hey and I’m sure, just because they’re overly funded doesn’t mean that you can’t still hop on the the Kickstarter Campaign, for, like said Bob said just for the the next few days, and while it’s still open so definitely check that out, yeah definitely go from good to bad, maybe or seemingly getting worse or just real yeah coronavirus.

Kovat 19 got to talk about that. A little bit this past Thursday on Thursday night knives, one of the show topics was, should blade, show be canceled, and I would I would say, about half and half Bob. The the books that were reading at least live haven’t looked through the replay comments, but you know about half and half are like no, it should not be canceled and about 50 % we’re saying yes, it should be canceled.

You know, I think, maybe it might divide down the you know. We all we all make decisions first and foremost and on how they affect us. I myself am I’m in my late middle 40s, I’m edging towards uh. You know I’m edging my way through middle age and I have children and I have elderly well, I have robustly seen your parents and in-laws and I don’t want to you know I don’t want to bring anything to them right.

You know, even though I’m so excited about this. Being my first blade show, you know a discretion. Oh no! No! That’s not the right term. What is the writer well better safe than sorry yeah? That’s it take precautions. Do what you need to to. You know ensure the safety of you and more so your family and friends. You know you have to you know as I’ve been following morale along with this. It’s just amazing how this thing trickles and spreads.

You know and that’s that’s what’s causing it and while you may not be in that senior vulnerable population, I so you know that’s that’s interesting. You know interesting thing for me to think about going to blade, show even next weekend a family wedding in North Carolina man, and I know you recently cancelled a trip to to New York because yeah the outbreak yeah the past weekend. We were going to go to New York and yeah have a have a good old time.

It was going to be my youngest daughter’s first trip there, so we were excited for that. But in any case we stayed home and, and one good thing from that is well, we we all got to get all of our house chores out of the way. So now we’re just we’re just we have free time. So I got a chance to dig back into my knife making. Oh I thought you were going to say more time for more time for you guys to get on each other’s nerves.

Well, in order to stave that off, I got back into my knife making. So I had I had some heat-treated blades leftover. You know when we started this podcast I was in. I was doing that as a hobby, on weekends and and this sort of took over that, and so I’ve had a couple of heat-treated blades sitting fallow for about a year, and I have all the materials and tools I needed to handle them. So I started putting handles on them and and just spent the weekend doing that and it it.

It really did my my love for it. I die merrily, do stuff with my hands, that’s my artistic out, but lately it hasn’t been. So it was great to get back in the in the saddle. Well, it was interesting again referring to this past Thursday night knives. She actually had one of your friends who you had made a knife for that actually hopped in the comments when you were when you guys were talking about that.

So that was that’s pretty cool, at least for me to read. I know how it was for you on the receiving end of that I was, it was shocking, it was cool, he happens to be a an officer of the law and I don’t know why. Having an officer of the law pop into the show, I mean snoozy Oman made me feel like oh my gosh. What am I doing wrong, but of course I was doing nothing wrong. Yeah. I made him a little a little boot knife, a little boot horn cliff and when he was a motor cop, all right cool deal talking about coronavirus, Co, vid, we mention blade, show on Thursday night knives.

You know some for summit against canceling, but the virus is already affecting some shows worldwide. Bub yeah remember, we talked about the Iowa, show the outdoor classics, it’s the it’s. The huge European outdoor equipment show and a lot of knife makers, European and American – and you know worldwide – show there well, they had canceled it initially and then they just rescheduled it for September September.

Third, through six twenty twenty and their aim is now to just you know: it’s always been in March historically now that they’re moving it to September for this year, they’re going to keep it in September in in consequent years, just to sort of keep it regular, yeah And it’ll still be in nürnberg at their Exhibition Center in Germany. So it’s good to hear that it’s not just canceled! You know a lot of people rely on these shows to make contacts and to make sales and to keep afloat.

Livelihood yep it’s nice to hear that they haven’t just outright canceled it, but they’re optimistically, pushing it pushing it back at all and something about tops knives. Oh yeah, I was looking on Instagram and it seems that tops has canceled. Their participation in a number of upcoming shows – I don’t know if that includes blade, show or what but yeah they announced it on Instagram I don’t know, but with an announcement as it was just sort of an offhanded comment in one of the posts I saw since When, since we’ve canceled, all of our upcoming shows, we want to let you know that we’re still busting out nine and another thing I want to mention.

I heard an economist talking on the Joe Rogan podcast or another podcast about how buying goods from other countries and importing goods is not an issue. So if you’re concerned about mine and selling knives, or especially buying knives, apparently merchandize and receiving merchandise, is not much of an issue. However, if you’re buying from the secondary market you still may want to. I don’t know I do this anyway.

Whenever I get a new knife, I’ve always done this. I kind of wipe it down with alcohol. Before I even touch it, you never know who you’re getting it from and I’m you know, I’m probably all great guys, but you know never know what they touched right before. They put it in again, better safe than sorry yeah yeah. And if you have a, if you have a legacy of paranoia such as myself, you’ll, do things this alright, hey stay with us.

We’ve got some stories. Some knife life news, we’re going to get into and hang around Bob’s going to do a first tool segment. Talking about the Chris you’re listening to the knife, junkie podcast, it’s time now for the latest knife life news. So recently, there’s been a lot of talk of the knife called Elvia by Edie Calderon Edie Calderon, as is a prominent former counter. Narco agent who worked in in the Mexican cartel worked for ting the Mexican cartels.

If you will and he’s got a blog called Ed’s manifesto, it’s pretty famous and he talks about the different things that are happening in cartel controlled in Mexico, and he talks about some of his misadventures or whatever you want to call them and being law enforcement down. There and survival tactics and stuff like that anyway, he’s he’s had this knife that he’s carried as his ultimate backup for years.

It’s called. He calls it the Elvia, which is his mother’s name. This knife was his mother’s all-around utility kitchen, paring knife, and it was something that she carried with her, and it was something that she used for everything chores around the house – prepping food, this and that. But it also came in handy when they were attacked on the street and she saved her family with this little knife, and so ed Calderon has had a number of these made-up custom version.

Recently we talked about how emerson knives is making a folding version of this knife and now Copas designs. Someone I’ve reached out to I’d love to have on the show. John bullets is sorry. If I’m mispronouncing your name, he has come out with a midtech version of the egg Calderon Elvia. It is a fixed bladed version and it is an interesting take on the whole midtech concept. Usually, designers and makers use midtech knives to push out high-end reproductions of even higher-end customs.

Well, in this case, this midtech version is bringing this to the broader public, making this form factor more affordable to people. It’s a 154cm, it’s two and a half inches. The blade is sort of a hawk, build shaped blade, but the handle is gr and it’s molded grn and it fits in a in a super slim package. It’s like a Kydex sheath. So really the the most interesting thing to me is not only this. This very unique sort of pick call setup knife is, is going mainstream, but also that it’s coming out in a mid tech version brought out by John Ball.

Atz’s ball at this at a fraction of the price of what you might expect from a mid tech knife. John by the way is protege of Matt Martin of vehement knives. We’ve we talked to him on the show Matt Martin, who makes amazing amazing, fixed blade knives. As a matter of fact, we had Rob Bixby on the show recently and he said that he thinks Matt. Martin is the one of the finest he said: the finest fixed blade maker of his generation these days.

So that’s quite a compliment anyway. Yeah. So, look for this at Calderon Elvia on Ed’s manifesto, the first version of its sold the first batch sold really quickly, but they’re they’re putting a whole nother one into production sounds cool yeah. Moving on with knife life news. What is it Bob every week we’re talking about steelwill yeah and it’s true, and yet this is only the second knife. That’s coming out from them for 2020.

So far this is there. It’s called the AV or, and it’s let me see it’s the usual d2. G10, steel, liners four and a half ounces. You know it just looks like a steel. Well, it’s pretty cool-looking and I bet it’s. A workhorse got a nice forward finger choil and they really really on this. One worked hard on the action. Apparently, you can look at it, you can look at where the pivot and the flipper tab are when it’s open and they are thrust quite forward on the handle and, as a matter of fact, the handle even reaches forward to accommodate a more forward placement of the Pivot and and the flipper tab, which makes the action on this thing, apparently really really sweet.

It’s got ceramic ball bearing pivots, which is nice for a relatively inexpensive knife, and these things will be coming out March 16th. Now this is the second one. Like you said, we’ve talked about a lot of the knives. We’ve talked a lot about the knives they have in the offing, but this is only the second one to be released behind the screamer, which is a really cool. Looking knife. I love that screaming funny name and a little too short for my taste but cool knife, so that just came out a couple of days ago.

Yeah, that’s what you’re saying yeah March 16th: the arts 16th yeah. No, I suppose, the the past weekend it’s actually Monday. Yeah dates are not your strong suit. No no they’re not is my affect Monday, it’s just the last day of the weekend. Oh I like that way. Look at of that all right. Let’s talk about more new knives involving bokor, yes, blade yep just wanted to bring out the that poker has two new outdoor fixed blades coming out, and one of them is called the Commodore Commodore with a k and it’s the sequel to the cormoran which came out.

I believe last year it was a smaller outdoor, fixed blade, both designed by Hungarian knife maker Sandor Hagee’s, I’m I’m thinking. I almost speak Hungarian, I’m thinking that’s how you pronounce his name, who’s known for his rugged outdoor, fixed blades. Now this Commodore is a seven point. Six inch drop point blade with a it’s, a very plain-looking knife I got to say, but it looks like all business, its sk v, which is carbon steel, but it’s coated.

So it’s a slightly less thick than a quarter-inch. It’s going to it’s going to wall up as a chopper, so yeah g10 handle scales full tang check out this weight. Jim sixteen point: seven six ounces! So this sucker is a pound one pound and just over the limit to ship first class. The second one from them is by storied and much-loved Jesper boxing. As a guy I’d love to interview, he just keeps he’s an interesting guy anyway.

He’s got something coming out called the Ness me Pro and it’s a smaller his version of the nest muck and, if you don’t know the nest, muck is a is a famous door knife pattern. You know kind of famous with campers and outdoorsmen, so this Nessman Pro is a much smaller than usual nest muck. It’s got its got a contoured handle which is a little bit unusual and it’s got a d2 plated steel. It’s got, canvas micarta and it’ll only be about 65 bucks or so, which is way less than the previous version of his of his Nesmith, just 2.

6 inch blade and 2.75 ounces, so small light. And if it’s from vox Nez, it’s going to look cool as hell and feel great in your hands, so mmm sounds exciting and a 65 bucks pretty affordable, yeah well speaking of affordable, we’re going to talk about a new, affordable, titanium frame, lock folder from Ontario. That’s right, what’s their different, what’s their definition of affordable? Well, they are so famous at Ontario Knife Company in terms of folders for the rat one and rat two models, and – and I mean just for over ten years, those have been like highly recommended.

Budget-Conscious EDC’s they’re beautifully designed beautifully executed and inexpensive and come in a variety of Steel’s variety, meaning us 8 or d2. So now, they’ve come out with something new that I imagine they hope will sort of pick up. The mantle of the rat, the rat models and kind of push push things upward a little bit. It’s called the Shipra when I first saw it. I thought it was shakira the chakra and it is an interesting sort of combination of budget and Lux.

It’s a titanium frame, lock, micarta handled oz, 8 flipper, its 3.2 inches the blade. It’s it’s a drop point. It’s got a nice slender profile, the micarta handle looks beautiful and you know it just seems like a great thing for them to come out with my one reservation, of course, as you guessed from the pregnant pause before I mentioned, it is the AusAID steel. What’s up with AusAID steel, Ontario Knife Company you’re, an American company you’re, making your knives in America right? So why not just use an American steel and something that’s not such a dog people? Don’t like a hate.

I mean you know they like it as much as they’d like eight CR and it works, and it’s fine, but you can. You can now get better Steel’s or similar costs and and and they’re saying the Ontario knife and tool is saying what the hell do. You know about building knives, it cost you. You have no idea so shut up Bob and that’s a good point. However, I must say if you want to sell these things, how about you put eight you put like n690 or D, how about D? Just e people are doing D, it’s working, so I think it’s a great idea for Ontario Knife Company to come out with an inexpensive, titanium frame, lock folder with micarta love.

It mm-hmm just put on a steel. That’s not going to make people raise their eyebrows. I know ah sait is fine and I never push it to its limits, but I don’t know it’s a little tone deaf at this point. I think you did a you know fairly decent impersonation of Ontario Knife, but would go ahead and extend the invitation to Ontario Knife to come on the podcast talk about this as well as other great things.

Company has done the rat, the rat knives and those kind of things so open invitation there at Ontario or any other knife maker knife purveyor to come on. The show our Sunday interview show will give you a great platform to do that so to justify your faulty decisions. Dimarco I’m just kidding yo and you can email him at Bob at the knife and now that we’re caught up with a knife life news. Let’s hear more of the knife: junkie, podcast, all right, Bob kind of good-natured humor there little ribbing on you, but seriously do encourage folks to to email you at Bob at the knife, junkie, calm or call our listener line.

If you have any questions or comments, we would love to get your feedback and then play those back on the podcast. Seven. Two, four, four: six, six, four, four: eight seven, seven, two, four, four: six, six, four, four, eight seven! That’s the number to call to give us your comments, your Keeks, your questions. We would definitely love to hear from you and get some conversation, conversation going and speaking of kind of conversation and engagement.

One of the neat things last Thursday night on Thursday night lives, which is BOMs, live YouTube. Article show you and your guest co-host traditionally always do a pocket check at the beginning of the show, but this past Thursday just kind of evolved into a pocket check with all the listeners, and I really found that pretty cool that you know everybody’s throwing up on The comments you know what they carried in their pocket and you and an Alex the guest co-host last thirst.

He had a chance to kind of riff on those a little bit, so I think we’re going to be doing the pocket check as a regular thing on Thursday night knives. Yes, yes, I realized on that evening that I hadn’t done that in a little while I don’t think so, it was so cool to hear people chiming in with what they carried. Half of them were probably lying, but I’m just kidding there were some pretty sweet knives named.

I think someone was carrying up Bryan. I froze he’s a new knife maker, a relatively new that making some cool stuff I saw. I saw you writing down. You know it’s like: oh we’ve got to add that one to my collection, yeah yeah. How many pages is your easier to buy list? Now it’s a short list. As a matter of fact, I try not to keep one. I try not to keep on, though, though, from time to time I’ll make a little list.

Okay, all right, it’s time for some knife history with the first tool here on the knife, junkie, podcast. I wanted to talk a little bit about the Chris Jim, because I’ve been talking a lot about the Chris recently, what the two releases – the two 20/20 Cold Steel releases, the Signature Series tie light Chris and the extra-large Voyager Chris. These models, really, you know I was looking forward to something from cold steel in a Chris form, and then they came out with something this year, and so I was very happy snatched them both up, but it made me it made me think about Chris’s a lot And you know, when you show the knife to people, they initially frequently will initially assume it’s just kind of a novelty there to look cool.

You know to be scary, but really the the Chris shape blade has well it’s been around for a long time and it’s had a mystical significance that people are aware of, but it’s also a very, very practical weapon, not not maybe so much utility knife, but it Is an incredible weapon so, anyway, the the Chris came out of Southeast Asia, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, that area and they think that it and Java, I guess, is where it where it initially sprung up, but they think that it was perhaps a an offshoot of a of A long wavy, bladed glaive like weapon that the Chinese used, you know how everything just kind of you know.

Human history is one big long movement, people moving around the planet and you can really track that. When you look at blades, you can see how weapons, especially in the Philippines, were evolved from European Chinese African. You know because there are a maritime culture, so they had all these influences. The Chris is a wavy bladed sword which sometimes you’ll see in a straight blade. They think that it comes from the stingray tail as if to emulate the tail of a stingray, and it frequently will have a handle.

That’s angled off of the blade in such a way that it facilitates sort of a pistol grip or an extension of the forearm. So so that, when you’re thrusting forward your hand can take, can stay in a natural posture? Okay. So this is the really interesting thing when I started looking at Chris’s a real Chris, an actual chris has to have a rough surface texture, because what they were doing was you had to you had to make a Chris from a number of different Steel’s.

A number of different metals and it would end up rough and grainy and sort of de masta seen you know with swirling patterns you’d, be able to especially with an acid etch you’d, be able to see the different Steel’s in the blade and the reason that they Are frequently rough and kind of grainy and texture fizzle, physical texture is that meteorite was seen as a critical ingredient in the steel. If you could get your hands on some meteorite, which obviously has magical qualities to it and blend it into the steel and fold it into the steel, you would have a better blade, but also it creates what the bladesmiths down there called Pam or MRP a mor, Which is that sort of patina that sort of rough grainy patina and it’s interesting in the book I was reading? I have a bunch of books on swords.

As you may imagine, one of the books I was reading was saying that many many a knife collector has destroyed a fine Chris by thinking they needed to polish it by thinking that got some old busted yet and and they polish away the the quality of the Pammer of the blade so an interesting one of the design qualities of the Chris is how it widens at the base. So you’ll have these sinuous curves and, as it gets towards the the hilt, it widens out into a bunch of symbolic notches and teeth that are kind of carved into the hilt.

It extends back over the wrists more than it does over the fingers, and these teeth can be used also in a battle like fashion, if you’re, if you’re up close those teeth act, as you know, as weapons in and of themselves. Now, due to how long and how difficult it is to forge in the waves of a chris blade, you will also see a lot of straight bladed Chris’s, because they were quicker easier to make and you know, take less skill.

Different Smith’s have different skill levels and if you need a Chris, pretty quick, because the battles come and you’re not going to worry too much about about the waves, but the waves themselves, symbolic of a stingray tail also, the number of curves has some symbolism. I know that thirteen is a big number with the curves in the Indonesian Chris’s, but I’m not exactly sure what that means. They also have a very practical application in a slash those waves.

If you’re slashing against someone’s flesh with those waves, they act as a serration. As serrations, so it’s like the galatians act as serrations like on a bread knife and cut cut and slash ever deeper, but also on a thrust. The waves have the practical application of widening the wound, blog as as pushed forward because, because of the waves become ever thicker and wider, it has that sort of a grisly sort of effect.

So a couple of interesting, mystical aspects about the chris and old chris and old, well used chris should be raised to the forehead in a salutation. That’s part of kind of the kali salutation it’s to show respect, because these things have magical forces in them. At least that’s that’s how it’s perceived you’re, never to point the chris at anyone, even if it’s in the sheath, because it will bring bad luck on that person.

Oh wow yeah it’ll project its magic. Hopefully you haven’t done that with yours. Well, we’ll get to that. In a second, I found out something interesting about my chris to match the chris with the user. So, if someone’s going to the chris store and buying a chris kinda like harry potter in the wand, store, yes exactly, you hold the chris in your hand, and you repeat this sort of poem it’s kind of like she loves me.

She loves me not. She loves me, she loves me, not. She loves me and if you end on she loves me not you put that chris down and you pick up a different chris, because that is not the chris for you. So that’s like. Obviously it’s not. She loves me. She loves me not it’s a it’s an ancient south east asian poem, but it kind of has the same effect now in peacetime. A real man walks around with his chris all the time, but he leaves it on the right side and that that shows that, with his right hand, it would make it much more difficult to draw and use it.

So so yes, I’m a man, I’m wearing my Chris, but it’s on my right side. That means I’m chill and it’s a peacetime but in confrontation on the street or in battle. You move that over to the left hand, side, and it means I mean business so you’re, shifting that Chris over to the left. Now it can be easily drawn with your right hand, and you can go to work and oftentimes in battle. They would bring to Chris’s or three Chris’s too meaning one in each hand, the Philippine, especially in the Philippines, they’re very good at that sort of two-handed fighting and then the family.

Chris. Also with you to bring you good luck and and magic. In Java, the Chris, which in Java is long and thin and very curvy, is used to exit was used for executions, kind of Roman style if you’ve ever seen the movie Gladiator towards in the beginning, some treacherous captains are trying to kill the main character Maximus and They put him on his knees and they’re about to thrust the sword, downward parallel to the spine between the clavicle and the shoulder blade, and it goes right into the heart and feels you pretty quick.

Well, they would do the same thing in in Java using the Chris, except they would put a wad of cloth there and thrust through the cloth and then, as they draw it out, wipe the blood off very efficient, pretty ingenious yeah anyway. This is obviously a brief bullet point. Look at the Chris because it’s a very long and interesting and convoluted history, because of all the many many thousands of different islands in Southeast Asia that it resided on in these different archipelagos.

So I have a Chris. That’s been hanging on my wall behind me if you’ve ever readed Thursday night knives, you’ve seen it and in doing this research I realized it’s not a Chris afterall. It’s called a Sun dang and a Sun dang is a polished, bladed sword. So the elements of making the sword are different. It’s a polished blade. The blade is broader thinner and has a long portion of straight after the waves.

It’s got an s-shaped hilt, a tubular handle, and all of these things make it not a Chris. I totally thought I had a Chris for years and years, but but I have a son dang and actually it’s a very robust sword, and maybe even I don’t know I don’t know, maybe better than more battle worthy who knows your son dying is better than a Chris, okay and and just in wrapping up, I want to reference how I brought this in the cold steel chrissa’s.

Now, if you look at them, the cold steel Voyager Chris actually resembles more of a sundae. It’s got a wider, broader blade and the tie light version. The one that looks like the Italian switchblade looks more like an Indonesian Chris, it’s more sinuous, it’s thinner and the and the and the waves are more dramatic. So I don’t know if he intended this, but in in putting out these two knives well Lin Thompson scratched.

Two itches, I didn’t know I had so I’m pretty sure he wasn’t intending on that. Well, you never know the the things you learned in your research, maybe were part of the design of those knives. Yeah learning those little little ancient bits of history. If you’re at all interested in the Chris, please take what I’ve just told you, as the cliff notes, go read a book or look at the the Wikipedia page.

That’s pretty in-depth. It is a fascinating history and that’s this week’s look at knife history with the first tool and now back to the knife: junkie, podcast, all right back on the knife, junkie, podcast bob again kudos! Compliments! You know. History was an okay subject for me in high school. In college, but it’s it’s, it’s really good, just just enough to kind of whet the whistle and whet the appetite, learn some stuff and maybe entice folks to go, learn more about the subject of the first tool.

Well, you know it’s kind of interesting Jim. Is that any area of it’ll tell me okay, I will tell you any area of interest you have if it reaches back in time is a great way to learn about history. You know just cracking a history book. Didn’t didn’t interest me ever but learning about history through art or learning through history learning about history through weapons did so maybe that’s a good way to do it?
