No other industry can tout artisans the way bladesmiths can. If you want to discover the spans of talent and human creativity just attend the Atlanta Blade Show; this is true around the world with examples like Bastien Cove of Bastinelli Creations, Paris France, Jesus Hernandez of Salamanca Spain or Brent Beshara from Holyrood, Canada. Talent abounds!
One such individual is Thomas R. Bender from Van Nuys, Ca. By way of background, if you’ve been to see an action movie in the last 10 to 20 years it’s highly probable that Tom Bender had something to do with the guns and kabooms.
In November, I’ll be reviewing one of his creations for our readers. So, stay tuned.
