We just had a another great interview yesterday with a very well-known and well-respected knife maker, Chris Reeve of Chris Reeve Knives. Probably best known right now for his high-end Sebenza folding knife, Chris operates his factory out of Boise, Idaho. He was kind enough to sit down and talk with us for a while about his history in the knifemaking business and he shared some insights as to how he got started, what gave him ideas for news designs, and some of the things he believes separates his products from the mainstream. Aside from his Sebenza fame, Chris has won numerous awards for his designs, and has developed a wide variety of knives suited for the military, outdoors enthusiasts, and just the every day Joe. One thing I find most interesting and respect very much is the fact that one of his designs, the Green Beret model, is actually issued to soldiers upon completion of their special forces training. As a true patriot, I consider that a high honor indeed. We spent about an hour with Chris, so settle in for a little bit and share some time with us as we talk to one of the most respected knife makers currently in the industry. We hope you enjoy the conversation as much we did. He's an interesting fellow, and it was a lot of fun!
