Inside The Mind Of A Maker

Creativity
Ben Edmonds
Founder of Blok Knives
“If you really want to do something and you surround yourself with the right people, you take on the right advice, you’re just open and you just go for it. Anything is possible.”

Ben has always been fascinated by making, building and dismantling things; every now and again he’d find himself watching random videos of people doing the same. After watching a video of a young lad making a knife in his dad’s garage, he found his next project and Blok Knives was born.

Looking back on how his brand has grown, he shares some valuable lessons on the creative process and what it's like to turn a passion into a business.
