    That's what it would take to make a knife maker, not to *be* one.

    Hmmm.... Patience for a bunch of impatient customers? Time, and plenty of it? An understanding of not knowing how you're going to pay for your next meal, let alone the roof over your head or last night's bar tab? MORE time and patience?

    Wait, are we talking about making knives or "becoming a chef"?

    The ability to self delude yourself into thinking knifemaking is THE BEST and only option in life

    Just kidding, sort of.

    I'm going back to basics for my answer. The mastery of a hammer and how to shape things.
