    No, you have not mis-read that.

    This article from Wired magazine is about an attempt by some anthropologists to recreate an 'urban legend' of an elderly Inuit man in the '50s who supposedly made a knife so as to survive and disappeared into the wilderness...

    Here is a link so you can read it yourself: https://www.wired.com/story/knives-frozen-feces-kinda-crappy/

    Yeah, kinda weird. But an interesting read!

    L'chaim!

    I stumbled across this on my Google News feed a few days back. Certainly one of the more :censored: type articles I've seen lately.

    I won't spoil it for anyone but let's just say knife makers won't be embracing poop as the new material of choice.

    I'm a father and grew up/live on a farm. I've had poop on me before but I can say with a straight face I have never set out to touch it.

    Now that you’ve let the cat out of the bag, these will be all the rage on the knife forums...marketing just needs to make sure they get a few good people touting their fit and finish proudly, along with a hefty price tag, and we will start seeing the picture threads
