Did anybody saw this documentary (modern marvels:build by hand) ?

I did. Nothing new, or at least nothing vastly different from all the vids found online. I do have a lot of respect for Kramer though, as both a craftsman and a businessman. He developed his skills, caught some lucky breaks, and parlayed them into an awesome career. Being an American craftsman, living in a community densely populated by the same, I'm glad to see a fellow craftsman achieve what he has. I can only hope that at some point in time, Americans will appreciate the handmade, well-designed, well-crafted object, and it's maker, as much as the Japanese do. We got a lot of catching up to do in that regard.

I didn't get to catch it, trying to find it online somewhere. Was he on the whole show or just a short segment?

Go Kramer, Go Kramer, It's your birthday, It's your birthday! :dance4:

I love how famous this dude is getting. Every British Invasion needs a Beatles, every Food Renaissance needs a Gordon Ramsay. I certainly don't want to be that famous for doing, well, much of anything. I am stoked that he is getting the concept out there, and even more stoked, that his prices set a new bar--one knifemakers can make a living under! :thumbsup:

Kramer plugged it as a piece of history in the e-mail. I am thinking I should take all my knives down to Vegas and try sell them on Pawn Stars and then refuse their offer just to have the TV value. Ok maybe not.
