I agree with Dana on this Chris, I was invited early on but d## not like what I saw in the first series and declined. That and I'm dumb enough in person, I don't need to be on TV to prove it.

I like the face to face dealings as well. James is a true gentleman and a wealth of knowledge. Andy and his crew are the same way, most of them are excellent knifemakers. Andy's got that business sense that really makes things work (something I don't have, I'm no businessman). If you go to their website or the Georgia Guild website check out the work of Dirk Lootz, one of his partners. This South African transplant makes knives that are unbelievable plus he's just a really kool dude. Joey's no slouch either, excellent kitchen knives. None of them forge, but they have expanded the offerings to include quite a bit of smithing supplies. I like giving them a rash about all the potential knifeblades they sweep up and throw out every day. We're all very good friends and I count it a great blessing to be part of this knifemakers' brotherhood.
