Bloodroot Blades, a set of Japanese-style knives, come with a heartwarming friendship story. Dave, a cook and gardener, was in want of better blades. Luke, his blade-making friend, helped him out. Dave gave the spectacular knives to his groomsmen as gifts. Now, the pair is in business together, making the knives from wood, leather, antler, brass, aluminum, copper, and so on. The materials are recycled, making the designs a true mark of happily-ever-after.
