Knife maker talks shop and shows the tools of the trade

(CBS) - We hit on the subject of food/cooking in our last post with an expert butcher displaying how to take a pig apart. So let's stick with the theme, but switch gears a little, and focus on the tools of the trade: knives! Check out this video with an expert knife maker talking about his craft.

Fascinating, right? I've always been a bit of a foodie, so am totally intrigued with what's "behind the curtain" and the process and tools that go into the creation. The video features knife maker  Joel Bukiewicz and was posted by Vimeo user Made by Hand who writes:

In our second film, we meet writer turned knife maker Joel Bukiewicz of Cut Brooklyn. He talks about the human element of craft, and the potential for a skill to mature into an art. And in sharing his story, he alights on the real meaning of handmade - a movement whose riches are measured in people, not cash.
