When people ask if it is hard to make a knife, I think of an older gentleman I met in Sweden. He was whittling a piece of wood into a Dalecarlian horse. I asked him if it was hard to make a horse. He gave me a wry smile and said, “No son it is not hard. You just have to cut away what’s not the horse.”
