Joel Bukiewicz of Cut Brooklyn talks about the value of handmade, and how that extends to his line of kitchen knives that he builds in his studio in Brooklyn, New York. Joel was a writer by trade who, after taking a three month sabbatical, discovered the desire to make physical things instead. He worked with wood, jewelry, and eventually ended up making hunting knives. After finding that the knives were being displayed as works of art rather then functional tools, he switched to making kitchen knives, and catering to the New York food scene. My favorite part of the film is how he talks about moving into a work studio with others and the creativity that was fostered there.
