I just love these short films. I know it is a marketing piece from The Balvenie but that only comes into it at the very end.
We should he championing British crafts people in this day of mechanical autonomy, it is small business/people like Will Ferraby from Sheffield who are keeping traditional skills alive. I had not heard of Will before but will now make a concerted effort to learn more about him and the hand crafted knives he makes. I find it fascinating having long wanted to see how knives are made and had even drafted a small article. I had intended to interview a medium sized, higher end producer but this short has changed my mind. I will now seek out a true craftsman (hopefully Will!) to document the process with my camera. So thank you Michel Roux Jr, The Balvenie and of course Will Ferraby.
