I would like to make something perfectly clear. If you come up to me while I am at the forge and ask me to make a knife. One of 2 things are going to happen ether I straight up tell you no, as I do not make knives until all other tools are done. Or I make the knife, but you will never hold it. You will ask me to do something with it and then lead me to the job. After the job is done the knife goes right back in my backpack. Asking me for a knife is proof enough that you can’t be trusted with one. The only people I will ever trust with a knife is those who can make one for themselves. Just know that if the first complete sentence I here from you is “can-you-mak-e-kni-fe” you will be watched like a hawk.
The reason for this informative rant is because of the life I just lived. I was born to an eve making a basket. After that she abandoned the reeds and picked me up. We started exploring to the south and immediately found a large village. Not quite a full set of tools yet but a good start. When I grew up I started setting up the forge as it was a mess. After I set up the fire a child comes up and specifically asks for “2” knives. I found it strange that she wanted 2 of anything when we were still missing so much. I told her “no” and “more important stuff first”. I went back to work making charcoal. I get my first red ingot on the stone and my hammer was gone. I asked around and someone told me that a child ran off with it. So I reheated the ingot and made a new hammer that I hid behind a tree. When I finished the saw blade that was requested I couldn’t find the person who wanted it, so I finished the saw myself and put wheels on 2 carts. I went back to the forge and found that all the important stuff was gone and there were rabbit bones everywhere. I ended up starving because I couldn’t set anything down.
Moral of the story: if you ask for a knife out of the blue with no obvious reason other than “boots” or if I see you dropping bones everywhere. I Will Kill You On Site.
