Why Do Custom Knife Makers Love Art Knives?

Tony over at Everydaycommentary.com poses the question.

I think there will be a number of reasons and they will vary slightly from maker to maker, but I’ll throw a few guesses out there:

Personal Interest – A production knife is made by machines that don’t worry about getting bored. ┬áCreative custom knife makers want to stay interested in the work that they do. ┬áMaybe they want to change up their work while still keeping with the overall design they like.

Market – Makers will make what people are buying and what will make them money. Whether or not people want to admit it, money is a huge motivator. When you know people collect and buy art knives, it’s easy to head in that direction. It’s a safer route than completely new designs.

Any other ideas?
