GGL Episode 53: Favorite Knife Designers

Programming Note: Andrew from Edge Observer is taking time to refocus on real life stuff.  Andrew from 555 Gear kindly accepted our invitation to step in and be the third Musketeer.  This is his first show as cohost.  Audio quality will improve over time.

Second Programming Note: As you hear in the episode, my wife is 9+ months pregnant.  The podcast will go on hiatus as soon as the baby arrives.  It will return, I am just not sure when.  Don’t be too bummed, we will be back.
