My brother built me a knife
I have not seen my brother for 10 years. He is one year younger than me. He was living in Ca and running a large electrical company and sold it about 6 years ago and moved to Idaho. He spends his days riding horses and hunting in the hills and has taken up making knives so I am told. We haven't talked much. Just the way life happens.
Last year when I was sick he called and left me a message. About 3 months ago I sent him a box of my favorite cigars as I heard he enjoys them. We were once close but life has pulled us apart.
Yesterday I got this box in the mail. Just a return address. Nothing more. Inside was this beautiful knife. The feel is amazing and it’s so sharp it scares me. Pretty much how I would have had a custom skinner made including the choice of scales.
We may not be the chattiest of siblings but we do know each other well.
