Fiddleback Friday for 10/21/22
For as long as people have been walking the Earth. We've made tools from the bones of animals. Some of those tools were used in every day life, and some were made into hunting tools themselves. So it is no wonder that even after humans reached the iron age, they still used tools made from the bones, hide, and other part harvested from animals. Modern knife makers are no different, often using natural materials as their ancestors once did. There is something primal in us that still finds these tools to be both wondrous, and useful. We're drawn to the beauty of the natural material, much in the way that we're drawn to the great outdoors.
We have a few such examples of modern knife makers paying homage to our roots and ancestry. We also have more modern knives, influenced from other eras and regions. And then there are the complete modern knives, still made to do the most basic of human tasks... whether it's bushcraft, or food prep.
Turns out, the more things change, the more they stay the same.
