Retired and doing something that makes me want to jump up and get into my shop is my definition of happy, happy. Ideas pour forth for a new project, so lets “just do it”.
Crafting a new style of knife is and exercise in vision and patience. Many steps to plan. It all starts with the sheet of raw stainless steel that must go through many steps before becoming transformed to a beautiful, functional knife, built for many years of service.
Only the very best blades will ever make it to market and if it is a Burlock Blade, it will be one of the very best, guaranteed. Made to withstand hard work, or maybe just to be admired by a collecter, the knife will always be treasured by the owner.
I don’t create art as such but strive to build a tool that will last a lifetime.
A side Note:
From the most skilled surgeon to a bushman in the Amazon rainforest and everyone in between, the knife is the most used tool in the world, every day, year after year. Something to be said for the humble blade.
