This coming month we are going to treat you to one of Hollywood’s best kept secrets, Tom Bender. He’s not a screen name but his work has made just about every action film ever shot a success with his mastery of ordnance, weapons and explosives. Recall those KA-BOOMS that we all like so much, there’s a better than 50% chance Tom had a hand in it.
In addition to his entertainment industry career, Tom is a custom knife maker working out of his shop in Van Nuys, CA.
So, why haven’t you heard about Tom before? Let’s just say that he’s been hard at work finding his sweet spot and it looks like he’s found it with his chisel edge fixed blade designs. In our up coming expose of Tom Bender we’ll share with you his thoughts and philosophy, along with a sampling of his filmography, which is extensive.
In the meantime, if you want a Tom Bender knife, be prepared to wait. He’s asked me not to give out his contact information if that’s any clue to you.
Stay tuned for more to come…
