Made by Hand No 2 – The Knife Maker


Click the space above if you don’t see the video.  It’s there but for some reason it doesn’t show up on some computers/browsers.

This well made video is about Joel Bukiewicz, the owner of Cut Brooklyn, who started out wanting to be a writer but found he loves making things and being part of a community that makes things by hand.  Joel explains why, how he came to make knives for home and professional cooks and what it takes to get really good at something.

I enjoy videos like this and I’ve posted similar ones.  But for reasons I’m not sure I understand this one resonants with me much more than the others.  It might be because I also enjoy making things, but I make my living with computers so I don’t have anything tangible that I can see and hold at the end of my workday.
