In this episode I (Ben Roberts) talk to Glenn Klecker – The owner of Klecker Knife and Tool and former designer for Leatherman.
In this episode we talk all about how he started Klecker, and how innovation has become such a big part of Klecker’s brand appeal such as the KLAX Axe-Multitool. We then look at how Glenn comes up with these unique and innovative designs. We discuss how Glenn works with his son at the company and what advice he has for introducing young people to knives.
