Autopsies by Day, Making Chef …

When people die in suspicious circumstances, he determines causes of death by slicing through their corpses. He also makes customizable, top-of-the-line knives cherished by celebrity chefs.

In this episode of SIDE HUSTLES, meet Dr. Stephen Pustilnik, a forensic pathologist in Houston on a quest to create stronger, sharper knives for cutting up meat — in the kitchen and the morgue. Dr. P’s obsession with precision (as well as extra-hard, alloy steels and 40,000 year-old mammoth teeth) has made him pals with top chefs and left him with a five-year waitlist for his coveted knives, but he has to keep up his critical work at the county morgue.
