El valor del Handmade – The Knifemaker

Handmade, Made by Hand.

Creo que handmade, o lo que es lo mismo hecho a mano, artesanalmente es una palabra que de tanto repetirla la estamos desvirtuando.

Acabo de ver un video que me ha recomendado mi amiga Carmela, y me he quedado impresionada. Por lo bien hecho que está y, sobretodo, por el tema de fondo en si.

El protagonista, un artesano cuchillero de Brooklyn nos habla de como y porqué empezó y siguió con su actividad. Sobran mis palabras, tenéis que verlo.

 

 

“And so those things are the same with writing and knifemaking. It just takes buckets of blood and seat and…fuckin’ work to get there, that’s it…to get good, to get competent. And then once you become competent maybe you have (—-) you to become an artist maybe you don’t…”

“The difference between my knife that spends fifteen hours in my hands all the way through the process and a knife made in Germany by, like ten different robots over like a fifteen minute period is all really in the DETAILS.”

“There needs to be a human element in the making of this things.”
