New to Fixed Blades? Start Here - The Knife Junkie Podcast (Episode 447)

September 13, 2023

On the mid-week supplemental episode of The Knife Junkie podcast (episode 447), Bob "The Knife Junkie" DeMarco looks at his recommendations for fixed blades if you're looking for your first fixed blade, including the Sencut Waxahachie, Off-Grid Knives Ridgeback V2, and the Buck 119, among others.

Bob starts the show with his favorite comment of the week, followed by his "pocket check" of knives -- the CRK Sebenza 21, Jack Wolf Knives Feelgood, NoVA-1, and the CJRB Large Pyrite (Emotional Support Knife). Speaking of the NoVA-1, they are off at the engravers and the project is still on schedule.
