People generally make their decisions early and are seldom swayed by any future information. But, like that uplifting story about the person who throws starfish back into the ocean, if it matters to you, helps even a few people make better sense of all this, then it was likely worth it. Another not insignificant slice of my hesitation is that this is going to get me on the radar of the cranky read crazy vegan folks. One of the people featured in the movie did prison time for harassment and was the founder of an animal rights group that is known to have done everything from physical intimidation of people they disagree with, to firebombing houses of employees of the same.
Return to Topics Files are one of man's simplest tools, yet are capable of an unbelievable amount of cuts, forms, and shapes. Though there are only a handful of file shapes, there are numerous sizes, cuts, and wear conditions. A worn file may still be a useful file, creating a softer cut with a smoother edged line.
Cutting can benefit from liquid solutions and wax lubricants, easing clogging and reducing friction and heat.
A simple file cleaner is denatured alcohol. File handles are very important. Most are too small for comfortable use. The photo is manipulated with contrast tracing, embossing, and light solarization.
What if I can't afford your prices; can you make a cheaper knife?
Yes I can, but why? Sometimes a client receives a quote from me and realizes he's chosen features, materials, finishes, and embellishments that are out of his price range. With custom knives, the inclination is to go all-out, to get the features and materials you want, often because it's a dream knife, sometimes even a once-in-a-lifetime investment.
The client wants his money to go as far as possible, and also wants a very fine knife, one that will appreciate in value over the years. A knife made to these high quality standards will often become an heirloom piece, graciously handed down through generations.
If only he could buy the knife I am not interested in making budget knives. That would be like asking a fine chef to microwave a TV dinner for you. If a client needs a lower price, the conversation between client and maker might erode to a line by line evaluation of each feature, cutting away what is refined and valuable, and leaving out features in order to fit the knife within the budget.
The knife concept will ultimately suffer to become less than ideal, and less than the client or maker imagines. This is not a way to commission a fine handmade custom knife that will be worthy of investment, use, or collection.
From the knife maker's perspective, it doesn't make a lot of sense, with a high shop overhead, plenty of orders of fine pieces, and over three decades of hard experience making knives to then make budget knives.
There are already a great deal of inexpensive knives in the world for sale: As the maker's clientele become more vigilant of the maker's trends and knife values and the maker creates a much better product in higher demand for higher prices, it is clear that the maker should serve his existing clients by only making the very best of knives.
How might the collector of fine handmade knives feel if his favorite knife maker is now creating a cheap, quick product? This direction might indicate that the interest in the maker's work is waning in the marketplace, and this devalues existing collections.
