    On Episode 19 of The Knife Junkie Podcast, Bob "The Knife Junkie" DeMarco speaks with Adam Porras, an Army veteran with 20 years of service in the U.S. Army -- in 18 countries -- about the healing power of making knives at Recovery Forge in Lorton, Va.

    Porras was diagnosed with PTSD in 2011, and around the same time, a traumatic brain injury, and a broken back. “Blade Therapy” or forging provided an outlet.

    Recovery Forge uses the art of bladesmithing, to teach military personal (active, retired, reserve, National Guard, wounded, injured, ill), police, fire and rescue, their families and caregivers, through the use of fire, anvil and hammer.
    Recovery Forge teaches anyone that would like to learn the art of bladesmithing and provide all the tools that are needed to achieve this goal, free of charge. Donations are welcome, but not asked for or required.
