“Blades of Glory”: WSJ Profiles Thomas Mcguane IV

Self-taught knife maker Thomas McGuane,” says Wall Street Journal reporter Stinson Carter, “grew up around guys cut from the Hemingway cloth: men who fished the Florida Keys and hunted the Montana wilderness—when they weren’t pounding on their typewriter keys.”

Be sure to read writer Thomas McGuane’s 2000 piece “A Cut Above” in Food & Wine, where he says about his son’s craft: “Food preparation, that daily chore, is a challenge, a war on dreariness, an opportunity to restore joyousness to repeated tasks. Good knives that you sharpen and care for, that you perhaps find beauty in and keep, good knives help.”
