About this project
Hi, I am Patrick Roehrman from MT Knives
I am a knife maker from the Ozarks of Missouri, and I have been making knives for the last several years. I started working from home last August after receiving overwhelming support from many individuals who made it possible for me to make knives full time. Selling 100 Limited Edition Knives with stakeholder privileges with MT Knives in just under 7 minutes.
I am excited to share my passion of sharpening which I feel is a dying skill set that everyone can benefit from.
With the help of Paul Wheaton the "supreme executive producer with bacon, cheese and sparkles" From Permies, a big crowd of permaculture goofballs! There you can find all sorts of gold nuggets of information for everyone. And some really cool educational videos!
Most people use some sort of cutting edge EVERYDAY, pocket knives, box knives, scissors, razors and the list goes on. In fact due to the loss of this skill, we have gone to a throw away society. Once we maintained and took care of our cutting tools, now we throw away thousands of knives, razors, and scissors every day for the simple fact they went dull. I want to give you the skills and knowledge to maintain your tools and stop this wasteful trend.
Once you have gained the knowledge and skills required to sharpen anything, you will be surprised at the since of accomplishment, confidence, and empowerment that comes from your new found skill. But beware, when your friends find out they will be bringing you every edge they can find to have YOU restore their tools. And you might find your self with a new found career.
This is why I have decided to put together all in one place, a thorough instructional video on sharpening where
-I will cover the basics of sharpening knives and other tools -low cost how to begin sharpening for under 10 dollars -Knife care and maintenance -how to start your own sharpening service -and much more….
But I can’t do it without your help! The cost of production can only be met if we have enough support. Your contributions will go towards purchasing lights, backdrop, props, equipment, editing and production. Over the last several years I have honed my skills sharpening and studied a wide variety of sharpening styles and techniques and I have combined what I feel are the best practices. We are ready to begin filming as soon as we have the support and equipment needed to make a professional video.
I have put together many different rewards so all can join in. And you can be assured I appreciate everyones support in this effort. Some of the rewards include but not limited too super cool stickers for you car, truck, toolbox or anything you like. Also some Sweet t-shirts, and hoodies with the MT Knives’ logo on the front and back. And of course the video also.
Thank You for joining me in this endeavor to sharpen the entire world! Please make sure to share this with your friends and family.
