The Conception of a Knife

When my knife-making husband describes an idea for his next knife, I have trouble imagining what he sees. He’ll even try to help me by pulling a knife off his rack and explaining how it compares to the yet-to-be-made one. I smile and nod.

The truth is, I don’t see it.

He sketches, erases, draws some more, twists the paper around to show me, but still . . . it’s not real to me.

I understand this.

I read voraciously and attend writing conferences every year, working to improve my writing. And though I learn a lot by listening to best-selling authors, I’m far more impressed if I have read one of their books.

It’s all about seeing and handling the finished product.

The Oregon Knife Show is a few weeks away, and it’s a great opportunity to get your hands on one of Jerry’s finished products. Come take a look. I plan to drop by his table often so maybe I’ll see you there.
