Well said Patrice!!
I appreciate all knives. My personal preference is to follow my muse, and to sit back and enjoy watching where other people go with their vision.
I admit I don't care for sci-fi Klingon 6 bladed knives, but also know that the people who make them and buy them have their own opinion.
I personally want to make only knives that are works of art that have the heat treat nailed. Works if art that cut.
I have heard too much talk that art knives can't cut. Maybe some, but as a stereotype? Really?
BTW, you and Tai are largely responsible for getting me to look into the artistic side of knives deeper.
