    I do like your post Crothcipt. In my experience, that is true of a lot of the makers with long waiting lists.

    What's worse is, he films guys walking in and skipping the waiting list.

    I was thinking that as I watched the two they have posted. Maybe they had been on the list for 6 years, they said "hey we are shooting a show now want to be on it?" I know I would be pissed. Are all of his knives water jetted?

    Doesn't seem like Todd is the one-man custom shop he once was.

    II know it happens and I'm sure it's quite often. I just think it's a slap in the face to waiting customers to film it and shove it in their faces.

    Granted that one is pretty pricey, but his low price ones start out at 500.
    The one pictured is a "customized" (blinged out) version of what seems to be a mid-tech/ semi-production line of folders. The line normally runs $500-$800 but, according to the show the one in the picture would sell for $4000. I wonder if the steel is from Hoss?

    He seems like a super talented machinist, grinder, engineer (and designer if you like what looks like a knife version of an OC chopper). I think the show really could be interesting if they focused on the learning process of the 2 brothers and the young guys and let the audience learn along with them, but after watching the 2 episodes online, you get the same feeling as with OC choppers: that any learning you manage to do is done despite the best efforts of the producer.

    Other pics had watermarks from the sellers.

    I agree with hoping it is going to be informative, but don't see that happening.
