Knives, made by hand

posted by Jason Kottke   Nov 03, 2011

Another excellent video by Made By Hand: The Knife Maker.

Writer turned knife maker Joel Bukiewicz of Cut Brooklyn talks about the human element of craft, and the potential for a skill to mature into an art. And in sharing his story, he alights on the real meaning of handmade-a movement whose riches are measured in people, not cash.

At Cut Brooklyn, Bukiewicz also does knife sharpening, holds open shop hours in his workshop, holds knife skills classes, and has various knives for sale.

Made By Hand’s first video was about the Breuckelen Distilling Company.
