    That paper test oh my god. I love the look on both of their faces. Kramer knew he would be blown away and you can tell it still made him happy to see another person enjoy his work

    The way Brad used the knife to glide through that paper at the end: that is what I imagine heroin feels like.

    Yeahhh... heroins way better. In a bad way. Be happy that you think a knife cutting paper seems like heroin. Cause if you knew what heroin was actually like, you’d be hooked.

    Jay opiates have always made me itch. I know I’m allergic to codeine because of the itching, but dope definitely stopped making me itch after one or two uses.

    "Don't ever change" is so true. I love Brad! I would legit watch a video of him just making an iceberg lettuce salad

  • Ruby Harris  5 months ago

    I would watch a video of him, no matter what. I have been saying 'don't ever change' about Brad since the dawn of time(i.e. a few months ago when I discovered this angel.)

  • mikkel thybo  10 months ago

    Making salad is basically just putting a seed into soil, water, wait, and then harvest. i dunno how that would make for a great episode but i want to see that too now that you've mentioned it!

    what a sexy knife

  • Scott W Pilgrim  5 months ago

    @Anson Hu Nah, the beauty of that knife is the different layers of hard steel and soft steel. It's the pure impurity that keeps that knife sharp and strong.

  • Anson Hu  10 months ago

    alyssa marie more beautiful than most ppl

    Brad isn't just fun. He is good at bringing out the fun in his guests.

    Occasionally there's a guest that just doesn't understand, but the ones who just go with it always have a great time.

    Words like "craftsman" and "artisan" get bandied about with abandon these days, but Bob Kramer is an individual that truly embodies the spirit of craftsmanship. The amount of care and detail that goes into his knives is unparalleled.

  • Paul Beatty  7 months ago

    Is that an Anthony Bourdain quote? :) I remember him saying something similar when he had an episode of his show with Bob Kramer.

  • daAnder71  1 years ago

    Wupme Guess this is more a question of what style and design you like. Performance-wise there is hardly any difference between handcrafted Japanese* or American knives* or between damascus steel* and a decent mono steel.
