    Well done video, I probably would have left out the F Bombs as it is his business promotional material.

    Production and everything was good on the video, and the knives do look like they have good F&F. It's just funny that someone that makes knives for a living would say that there are only 4 to 5 people making kitchen knives in the U.S. Also, i thought the swearing was cheesy, it didn't even seem natural. Like he was trying to act like a badass on camera. Just my thoughts.

    You have to keep in mind the audience this video was made for. It's unlikely to be you or me.

    There are 4-5 A Level kitchen knives makers in the US, he is correct about that, and we all know who they are. The rest are B level and C level makers (no offense to anybody intended) and I can think of one that might be D. To get to be the A level, you have to compare and to test your knives against A level makers. That is the only way. Also, to be an A maker, you have to do all processes in house (heat treating, all the grinding, etc), as this gives you a full control over the outcome. Plus heat-treating is what makes a difference most of the time.

    I also think he said when he started making kitchen knives, there were only 4 or 5 guys in the States doing this.

    i like the movie as well. production was interesting and gave an insight into what he was trying to do without being edgy just for edgy-ness' sake (if thats a word)

    only thing, i would be wearing eye protection

    I'll be curious to see if anyone gets a passaround put together. I contacted Joel a while back, and while he seems like a cool guy, who appears to know his stuff, I got the impression he was fine with the audience/customers he already has.
