VPR Cafe: Sisters of Steel
This week on the VPR Cafe, Melissa Pasanen profiles two women from Vermont who hand forge beautiful kitchen knives. While they both live in Brooklyn, New York, have never met, and use very different techniques to produce one of a kind knives. However, they both experience their work as a unique craft in a mass produced world and a personal connection to their customers. Melissa writes for the Burlington Free Press where you can read her story and see a video of how an old metal file becomes a handmade knife.
