How to Sharpen the Edge of Your Knife

I teach a one day knife and blade sharpening course and in all of my classes, I discover the same or similar stories. People can’t seem to get their knife sharp no matter what technique they try or how long they work. Their knife edge doesn’t take an edge or keep an edge. For men, they resort to brute hand strength to cut or slice anything. Women become frustrated and just have their kitchen knives professionally sharpened for too much money.

How would you like to draw your knife from your pocket, sheath, or block and know beyond any shadow of a doubt that your knife is ready to cut, slice, dice, or trim? […]

What you didn’t know about the Stakeholder Auction

What you didn't know about the Stakeholder Auction

For those who don’t know about the Stakeholder Program, almost 3 years ago I launched the Stakeholder Program to transition from a part-time maker to full time! It was a huge success, I sold 100 positions in 6 mins after crashing my website and sending out links through email. There were a lot of people who didn’t get a chance to get in. Many have been waiting for this opportunity to arrive. So when it did earlier this month no one really knew how much it would bring. I had guessed […]

The General Update 02LE Knives

Hey folks,

Patrick here with MT Knives, and it’s time to give you guys the low down on the progress of the long-awaited Limited Edition Knives.

The Generals
A handful of the knives are out to the stakeholders already, and a few more are ready to send out the door today. However, the rollout on these knives has been a little slower than we would all like. Basically, there’s two reasons for that.

Number one, as picky as I was about quality on the first set of stakeholder knives, I’m being even more ruthless with the second run of my limited edition knives. I’ve been taking more time for additional training during the […]

MT Knives is Doubling Its Workforce

Work is really picking up around here! I have been wanting to get some help for quite some time. It is hard to find the right person for the job. However, after working last week with my new intern, I think the search is over, at least for the summer.  I would like to introduce my new intern for the summer, Eli Hansen. Eli is a seventeen-year old home school student from southeastern Minnesota, and he is interested in a business career. I invited him to come spend some time here and offered to teach him what I could about starting a business and making really cool knives. He came down to visit last week, and we really hit it off.

MT Knives News March 2014

The last couple of weeks have been slammed packed with a variety of things…. From training, teaching, traveling and tidying up my shop. And working on some knives!

Training

I spent several days with another knife maker “Bill” who has over 40 years of experience, and some really nice tools 😉  I have learned a lot from Bill and He lives pretty close so I will be  working with him a lot!  I hope to do some traveling one day and continue to learn new techniques along the road. I love meeting other knife makers. Here is one of Bills Toys, I hope to have some more toys in the future!
