The tally is in! Our Instagram and other social media voters were split down the middle between knife 4 and knife 5, splitting the 2 public votes.

Our three on-site judges, each with one vote, voted two for knife number 2 and 1 for knife 4, bringing us to a tie between knife 2 and 4. Given the overwhelming response from our fans, we tip to the public and declare Zach Tarbell's knife 4 the winner!

Congratulations, Zach, you have earned the bragging rights for our first knife forging contest winner!

We had our FIRST ever instructor bladesmith competition this past weekend at our Holiday Show & Sale. These contenders had only 6 hours to forge, fabricate, and assemble their finished knife. Actual testing was also done to test functionality and durability (visit our Facebook page for videos). Who will win?! Either way, we are stoked that each of our faculty who competed was able to finish a stellar completed knife in a ridiculous deadline!
