Episode 64: More Than Just A Nub ft. Shawn Ashmore (Peace Neighbor) It’s 2024, and the Knife Nuts Podcast miraculously makes it into a new year! In this episode, the Knife Nuts are joined by Shawn Ashmore,. an actor, knife enthusiast, and founder of the EDC tool company Peace Neighbor. While you may recognize him from the long running ABC series “The Rookie”, or Amazon’s “The Boys”, Shawn is a dyed in the wool knife enthusiast. His collection is exactly what you would expect from someone who took the time to learn about knives before buying. And his new EDC tool company, Peace Neighbor is no vanity project either; their first tool, the Archon, has been a thorough success and Shawn details all of the thought and refinement behind a seemingly simple little prybar. We discuss how he got into knives, his learning process, and where he is looking to take Peace Neighbor. It’s refreshing to hear someone so enthusiastic about this hobby, a stark contrast to the jaded Knife Nuts grumps. Check out Peace Neighbor and Shawn’s current show, The Rookie!

Episode 57: Aerospace Canteloupe (CARBON PLATE IS A SCAM DO NOT BUY FROM CARBON PLATE) In tonight's episode, Levon, Dave, and Brian take the time to address the situation with the run of Sharp by Design Mini Tempests and Carbon Plate's failure to deliver materials after taking $10,700 from Brian. DO NOT BUY FROM CARBON PLATE. If you know a knife maker who is considering buying from Carbon Plate, please warn them. There's still plenty of time for goofiness after addressing the elephant in the room, including the bizarre hostile takeover of Millit by Survive Knives. We also try and find some awful knife-related Christmas gifts to get the knife enthusiast in your life that you really don't like.

Episode 56: Hawkward ft. Grant & Gavin Hawk of Hawk Designs In tonight's episode, we are joined by Grant & Gavin Hawk of Hawk Designs, the legendary father-son duo who has for two decades been at the forefront of innovation in folding knives. It has been eight(!) years since BladeHQ made their excellent documentary/shop tour about the pair (which you can view here), and a lot has changed. If you were shocked at how rustic their shop was in 2012, in 2021 it is beginning to resemble the science fiction image you might have had in your head. We review their backstory with Grant, including some truly fantastic anecdotes about Reevus Christ himself, and then talk about the future of Hawk Design, which means full in-house production of the runaway success that is the Deadlock.
