Southern Grind is a knife manufacturer that is easy to like. They are owned by Zac Brown of the Zac Brown Band, they funnel part of their profits into Zac’s charity Camp Southern Ground, and they make great looking knives. They recently released a video that gives a behind the scenes look at their operation.
You will see plenty of advanced machinery but no knife will ever be great without plenty of time in the practiced hands of a craftsman. This is the dichotomy that you will find at many modern knife makers. As advanced as we have become, it is hard to imagine craftsmen will ever truly be replaced by machines.
Check out Southern Grind and stay tuned for the full review of the Modified Tanto Bad Monkey knife.
