Inspiration from History

     Let's face it, everything we create is a mashup of influences. I feel original, but I know the truth is that I am only recreating. There is something to be said, however, for being a part of a tradition.  I want to explore some of these influences and traditions. We will be looking at everything from knife history, cutlery techniques , and general history to contextualize our place in the heritage. 

This journal will include articles on knife history that has led to today's popular styles, historical knife usage and making, and thoughts on community, the maker movement and craftsmanship.
