Not every day do you hear the words ‘knife’ and ‘beautiful’ appear together in the same sentence. Words in harmony with tactical knives are usually rugged, lethal, sharp, robust, deadly, etc. So, one wonders why whey he sees a feminine adjective like ‘beautiful’ sitting alongside a deadly weapon. Margaret Wolfe Hungerford once famously quoted “Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder” and how rightly. You see beauty in anything you love and are passionate about.
