I idolized my dad. I liked (and copied) every thing he did. He always had to have a sharp knife. He was a great fisherman. He told me a sharp knife was the most important thing when cleaning fish. I would watch him sharpen them before he would clean fish.
I cut my hand playing with one of his knives. He said if I learned how to take care of a knife he would get me one. One day he gave me a knife. I still have it. I inherited all of Dad's knives. They are very important to me.
