About Walter Sorrells

I've been making knives for close to two decades now and I enjoy communicating about the challenge and excitement of this craft.  In all my videos I try to make sure that you get high quality audio and lots of clear close-up shots of what I do.  Video instructionals that don't show you anything are pointless. But to make good videos requires enormous amounts of time, high quality cameras and lenses, microphones, lights, and expensive editing software.  And also a lot of time.  Did I mention that before?  A LOT of time.  

The time I spend in front of the camera making a knife is just the tip of the iceberg.  There's writing the script, recording the voice-over audio, editing, choosing music, mixing, answering (at least some) of the literally hundreds of emails and comments that I get every week about my videos.  That's all time I'm taking away from the work that puts food on my family's table.  So the more you can support me, the more videos I can make, the higher quality equipment I can use...and most of all, the more time I can take to make sure you get as much information and enjoyment from each video as possible.  I hope you'll help me in this journey!

I've got several subscription levels, and each one comes with a cool reward -- stuff that can really help you learn more about knives and knifemaking.  And each reward level includes all the swag you'd get with the lower pledge levels.  I'm not suggesting you become a patron of the channel just for the swag.  Do it because you believe in what we're doing here.  But, hey, swag's good, too.

I've been using the same Nikon DSLR system for several years.  It's a good rig...but digital equipment evolves quickly.  And this one's showing its age.  I'd like to upgrade my camera for improved low light shooting (blacksmithing shops are always dim!), as well as to add a high quality macro lens to get you even closer to the action!
