    .... I will try taking embarrassing photos of Jon. That will be the most spectacular contribution that I can make for a knife community.

    I love learning history too I majored in American Studies as an undergrad, and Journalism in graduate school. I'll keep looking so I can share more historical findings about knives

    There are some craftsmen making knives from worn-out knives, but this is more for fun and for a personal(or communal) project than for commercial reasons... For the most part, I think recycling knives is not very cost effective, and the end result is somewhat unpredictable.
