Curtis Olson of the Bemidji area invites us to his shop where the iron age meets the space age. Olson demonstrates his process of making a hunting knife from special steel stock, through all of his carefully executed steps to a finished, fully functional work of utilitarian art. He honors the process, a legacy carried down from earlier innovators, for the sake of quality form & function.
