I was talking to my sister about some projects I have in mind, and I casually stated that knives are my passion.
She asked me why? I at first went blank then wrote her back:So, share with all of us why are knives your passion?You ask hard questions.... I of course gravitate to all things cooking. And a knife is the main tool of a chef. It becomes a personal statement, it becomes a part of your hand. They can be incredibly beautiful, in craftmanship and design.
If I think about it more, I might come up with a more intelligent answer.
