A Knife for Crafting

Did you notice the knife in the picture on yesterday's blog? That's my special crafting knife! My husband gave it to me when he was my boyfriend and we were dating in college. On Valentine's Day he gave me a gift bag filled to the top with Hershey Kisses. I'm sure I gave him some kind of face considering I wasn't that big of a fan of Hershey Kisses and there was no way one person would ever need that many. Little did I know there was something hidden in the middle of those chocolates. A KISS knife! And I thought the chocolates were weird...

He had to explain his thinking of course. He knew how much I enjoyed creating things and I had recently started a pottery class. I "borrowed" one of his man knives to assist me in slicing and recreating some of my clay pieces. His knife made a great tool in the pottery studio and I never really gave it back. I'm not sure he wanted it back anyway considering it was caked with clay.

That's when he got the idea to get me my very own knife I could do whatever I want with. How funny that it's a KISS knife named the PECK. Although these are cute names they do have a meaning,  KISS stands for Keep It Super Simple and PECK stands for Precision Engineered Knife. I use my KISS knife regularly, usually for paper crafts. After all I have a perfectly good knife for the studio. When I started throwing pottery again I was excited to open up my ceramic tool box and find my husbands knife still caked in clay.

That little KISS knife means more to me now than I ever thought it would at the time I received it. It's a memory of a thoughtful friend and a deep lasting love. I'm so thankful for my husband!
