Could someone tell me who the knife maker was in the Pulp film? Loved him! Not sure I could afford it, but perhaps I could put a hand made knife on my gift list.

There is nothing like these craftspeople. For someone who's bounced around jobs, I'm in awe of people who find their bliss and carry on for a lifetime.

(Do expect more tourists out of the film.)

Watching that film, my hands almost ache to use some of that machinery - very similar to machines I used in my old job. :cry:

Only lived in Sheffield for a few years but always loved local history like this. Did a search and some great videos there.
