Audio Interview Series Feedback

Your comments and emails about the first episode of the Audio Interview Series have been overwhelmingly positive for this new addition to CNJ.

The first episode is averaging over 100 views a day, which is excellent, especially considering CNJ is new site. Thank you for your support for what we are doing here.

Additionally, the individuals invited on the show have supported us very well. In fact, we are batting 100%. So far, every person asked to come on the show has agreed. There are a number of guest scheduled to be interviewed over the next several weeks. The Audio Interview Series is planned to be a regular part of CNJ. 

Got a question you want asked?

For the show to continue to be a success, I need your help. First, periodically, I will release a preview of the guest scheduled for the most immediate shows and if you have a question you want asked simply indicate the guest and your question in the feedback area below. 

Who would you like to see interviewed?

Also, if you know an individual of interest who will appeal to the CNJ audience I want to know this too. As a reminder our areas of interest are: All things related to knives, cutlery history, knife making, knife sales, knife manufacturing, knife collecting- I think you get the idea.

The scheduled guests for the next several shows include:

  • Tom Arrowsmith- President of W R Case Cutlery Company
  • Tony Bose- Knifemaker
  • Gil Hibben- President of The Knifemaker’s Guild
  • Byran Sanders- Founder of All About Pocket Knives
  • Doug Ritter- Chairman of Knife Rights Inc.
  • Don Hanson III- Knifemaker

So, here’s your chance to get your question in. Then, if you have a suggestion for a guest for the show, please let me know that too.

Thank you for your interest and support for Cutlery News Journal.

Editorial- Followup on your feedback

As a followup to my editorial- Speaking My Mind a few issues need further addressed and clarified in light of some of the comments I have received. Thanks for taking an interest and sharing your thoughts with me.

1. I am fine with criticism. Moreover, as long as it is rendered in gentlemanly (or womanly, as the case may be) fashion, you are free to express your thoughts here at CNJ.

2. It seems as if my comments were incorrectly construed to have been defending sham artists (crooks, fakers, and folks who intentionally deceive others) as a result of a link posted on BladeForums.com and that topic’s context.
