BD McGee is a Florida pirate, former New Jersey cop, and maker of all things sharp, metal, and pointy.
We'll get into the dare from his wife that had him making his first blade (out of a what?) to winning the big prize on Forged In Fire on the History Channel. But more importantly you'll hear the absolute joy that he gets out of creating a custom blade for one of his many adoring customers.

Your host Phil Johnson (comedian, musician, and pirate geek) interviews the most interesting people in the pirate subculture: Actors, Authors, Historians, Musicians, Artists, Festival Founders, Clothing and Prop Designers, Treasure Hunters, Archaeologists, and more.
