Zen and the Art of Knifemaking (again)
- This knife chose its own shape entirely. I just
watched my hands go here and there. I had a design
in mind that had nothing at all to do with
what came out. A famous sculpter was once asked how
he created his creations and he said he simply
removed whatever shouldn't be there. This is how it
seemed to go for this knife. I had and have the
feeling that I had as little to do with it as a
telephone has with the messages it transmits.
