Buckle up for this EPIC episode of BOM!

Saunders and Grimsmo both have a LOT to talk about as Grimsmo bargains for the shop of his dreams, and Saunders takes on multiple projects that each have BIG implications and potential

Behind the GrimsBRO scenes 

When it comes down to it, Grimsmo Knives was started by two brothers, and they continue to make big business decisions together. Grimsmo shared a chat on his Insta story (@johngrimsmoknives) between him and Erik, and it left people guessing.  

BUT Grimsmo KNOWS what he wants. 

After visiting his dream shop a couple days ago, he says: 

“[The shop] is different than what I expected, but it’s also everything I expected. Price wise, it works” - Grimsmo
