Dear What's Cookin',
I know it's long past December and January, and now February has faded, too, but I've been dying to tell you what I got for Christmas: A hand-forged kitchen knife! Wait until you see it! If you come over, I will let you try it, but if you can't drop by, let me tell you that using it to slice is a delight! It isn't just another blade, it's a whole new experience. I am wishing for you to get one under your tree next year.
Take a gander at the whole beautiful process, from segment of rail car spring to finished tool, it's a long and lovely journey!

Isn't it marvelous what a skilled craftsperson can get from fire & steel? I wonder if you should wait as long as December... and anyway, you'll want to get your order in early! Here's where to begin.
