1. a sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations.

When you pick up a knife it should take you back to another time or place.  This could be your childhood, a memorable hunt, an outing with your father, or grandfather.  

Bob Loveless once said "When a man picks up a knife, there's an old memory from the collective unconscious that surfaces. A knife is an atavistic experience. It was man's first tool and weapon. Man was chipping flint into cutting edges before he invented the wheel.  No matter how sophisticated we become, a knife takes us back to the cave."

I want each of my knives to be an experience.  I want each customer to hold their custom knife in their hand, and be immediately taken back to a simpler way of life.   I strive to create knives to be passed down to future generations. The knife you purchase today should be treasured 100 years from now.
