    I just got back from the Philippines. I was there with Team Rubicon to provide medical relief after Typhoon Yolanda. One of the things I did was set up a little field hospital in Carigara, which is about 20 miles as the crow flies from Tacloban. There were lots of aid organizations in Tacloban, but very few left the area to help out in the rural areas.

    While I was in Carigara I found their local knife industry. It is quite interesting. I bought a whole bunch of knives to bring back and I also filmed the process of them being made.

    Awesome. $20 a piece is a screaming deal.

    Any way we can get some better pics of the pieces you brought home?

    That was great of you to volunteer for relief in the Phillipines. I watched your videos day 4 and day 4.5. I am glad you got a little free time. Those are great looking knives also! I can't wait to see pictures!
