The Knife Maker

The wonderful folks behind Made By Hand just released their second short about a Brooklyn based writer turned knife maker. Joel Bukiewicz of Cut Brooklyn talks about the human element of craft, and the potential for a skill to mature into an art. And in sharing his story, he alights on the real meaning of handmade—a movement whose riches are measured in people, not cash. Wonderful!

Made by Hand is a short film series celebrating the people who make things by hand — sustainably, locally, and with a love for their craft.

  1. Chow filmed and interviewed Joel a while back for their Obsessives series. Well worth a look, his craft and enthusiasm for keeping it simple is inspiring.

  2. thanks for sharing – again!! I sometimes think the western world is running out of people who actually are able to MAKE things. this gives me hope :-)
