Salutations!

Here is “therapy” project that I made this week. Damascus steel blade with deer bone handle and bronze pommel. Blade is tempered and sharpened.

I hate when animal is hunted and hunter doesn’t use every bit of it. Deer’s carcass was about to go to the carbage but I took it from the hunter to use rest of the parts of it.


This knife is on sale, but due United states strict customs this is only available in EU. (They don’t like the bone parts.) You can find it and other my products from Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/your/shops/Alkutuli/tools/listings/226191272

The True Tale of Buying a Knife in China

I decided to buy a chopping knife, because cutting vegetables should be enjoyable, so I went to Carrefour across the street from campus. Carrefour is like a French version of Walmart that carries basically everything. In my Carrefour they sell clothing, backpacks, bikes, groceries of all kinds, rice cookers and other home appliances, dishes, beauty products, home and automobile cleaning products, and more. 

They do not sell knives, as I found out. Following some stabbings last decade, and in the run-up to the 2008 Olympics, knife sales in China began to be restricted. As far as I’ve found, there’s no place in the central city to buy a big, sharp knife. I had to go to IKEA on the south side to find one.

We - luckily I had a Chinese-speaking friend with me - found the knives in a locked glass case on the wall after slowly traversing the whole IKEA pathway to the market hall. We spoke to a salesperson and told her which one we wanted, and she brought us to a computer, where she entered my passport number and phone number. We then waited for about 15 minutes while they printed a paper with my information along with the knife’s. To actually get the knife, we had to take that paper to the cashier, pay, and then go to another counter off to the side, where they brought the knife out to us. Finally, we could leave IKEA, but we still had to take an hour-long cab ride home because we wouldn’t be allowed on the subway with the knife.

For a kitchen knife this seems like overkill to me, but it would be good if buying a gun in America were at least this difficult. Recording identification and keeping weapons in a place where not just anyone can grab them just sounds sensible. If it were just up to me I’d probably require a safety certification as well, but this would at least be a start.
