One of the things we want to do is help people get to know our amazing Mastersmith Ed a little better. The time and patience he dedicates to making our videos. We want to inspire as many people to check out his amazing workmanship and point them in the direction to where they can purchase his knives. So we start by asking some random questions with our Mastersmith in a new series called “5 Minutes With The Mastersmith”.
I purchased my first video several months ago. My life is so crazy at this point that I am falling behind in watching the content, but every interaction with Ed and Tim has been fantastic. Ed says it how it is. Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us new folks.
Being an Apprentice Bladesmith and doing my best to support a family with a demanding job, time is very precious. The videos produced by KnifeMaker Training save me hours of sifting though info on the web, which allows me more time in the shop. Some of the tutorials have been a great refresher for topics Ed covered during my Bladesmithing class, while others are new info. These videos have become a valuable tool in my shop and save me more money than they cost. Keep em’ coming boys, I’m hungry!
I have been making knives for a little over a year. I have learned so much from Ed off of the various knife making forums and when KnifeMaker Training was announced, I knew I would be a follower. Ed’s willingness and style of teaching is so easy to learn from, that I have been able to build knives that would have taken me much more time to make and with fewer mistakes. The quality of my knives has definitely improved because of KnifeMaker Training. Thanks Ed and Tim.
This is just one of the many reasons why we love our beloved Mastersmith Ed Caffrey. This is a man with a heart for teaching and for pushing the hobby forward to the next kid. I get to work with him constantly and I have yet to have a day where I have not experienced generosity and kindness constantly flowing out of him.
