Welcome to my Patreon page! 

I am Frank--a guy who loves pocket knives and enjoys making some of the very best YouTube and Instagram content for the knife community.  As a busy neurosurgery resident physician, I have reached my limit in my ability to sustain my channel with the meager ad revenue I have generated (only $441 in the first 2 years!/350 videos).  I appreciate any amount you can contribute to help me keep going!  Thank you for visiting and take care!

How will my money be used?

The Doctor Frunkey Patreon money will be collected into a single PayPal account and I will be fully transparent with the funds.  I will demonstrate the account balance and discuss purchases with Patrons.  All patrons are welcome to make suggestions for knife purchases. 

Knives purchased with Patreon money WILL BE GIVEN BACK to my patrons in Patreon-only giveaways!  These will be the free gifts given away in the Gold and Apex Tiers.

Will you use this money to buy custom knives?

Yes and No.  I WILL NOT use this money to buy knives for my personal collection.  You are not funding my hobby, you are funding a video overview/review channel.  I WILL buy knives that the funding will allow, and I will hopefully include a few custom pieces (that will end up being given away here too!).

What are the "Honest Knife Reviews" and why weren't you honest before?

The concept of "Honest Knife Reviews" is a satirical take on the knife review.  These will be short clips made for Apex-tier patrons only.  The name is a play on the YouTube series "Honest Movie Trailers."  The videos will be brutally honest, offensive, inappropriate, and unsuitable for my main YouTube channel.  These WILL NOT detract from my regular programming, and WILL NOT be regularly scheduled.  All my normal reviews are 100% honest and I am not paid to review any products.  If a product is given to me for free, I will mention this in a review. 

If I buy into a higher tier, are the lower tier privileges still available to me?

ABSOLUTELY!  All tiers are cumulative.  If you buy into Apex tier, you will get all the benefits from the lower tiers as well.  Please respect the incentives for each level.  I want to be polite, but Green members should not ask for Gold level privileges, etc.

The Apex
$25 or more per month
Apex-only "Honest Knife Reviews"


These are a small number of videos *I have already made* that I haven't released.  These will not become a regular feature and I will not be making these videos on purpose.  These are more like "Videos I Didn't Want to Release."  For now.


If you enter this tier, simply message me and I will share the videos with you.  I ask that you not share any of the information with others, as it is private information I am sharing among friends.


If I find that you are abusing this privilege, I reserve the right to remove your access and patronage.


These videos will be unlocked once the $300/month goal is met.
