Professor Paul received his first lesson in custom knife forging from our friend Nate the Blade Maker. Nate Summers is a History Channel, Forged in Fire winner and a skilled custom knife maker.

We have another Duracoat Finished Firearm of the week for you guys. This week, Paul will show off a GLOCK 17 that he refinished after attending Duracoat University.
