    Any one see Mareko Maumasi win tonight? Redemption for last year. My kids were pretty excited watching with me. They dig his knives like I do. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

    I have actually never seen an episode, but congrats Mareko!
  3. That's awesome, I haven't seen the episodes (no TV) but I'm excited about the series. Anyone knows if it is on Netflix? At least older seasons?

    Congratulations Mareko! Finally got a chance to see the show last night. What really tickled us was the way the judges reacted in the first round test. They did their whacking and then had "whoa dude! what a knife!" moments. They seemed genuinely blown away by it. That such a light knife could beat on antlers and then rip through a row of apples like that was great.
  13. Thank you all for your awesome support!! I had a great time competing this second time around. Definitely a bonus to bring home a win after all the hard word.
    Ya all the testing was really brutal to watch, but as you can see, proper heat treat and edge geometry go a long way.
    @Lucretia, I baked a bunch of cookies to take and share with some of the film crew and my competitors. They felt the same way you did and they were very well received!

    Those are some awesome cookies! But they will make you break out in fat.
  15. I'm a little late, but congrats Mareko! Great that you won and great that you liked the competition.
  16. That's why I only bake them about once every couple months and eat a dozen to myself, though the batch makes about 6dz.

  17. Congrats Mareko! I just had a chance to watch the show. That was a great competition, and you were so calm and cool all they way. Nicely done sir.
    I also loved seeing your shop, and that grinding jacket is priceless. :)
