GIVE THE DONOR A COIN


In the movie The Edge Anthony Hopkins's character, Charles Morse, receives a knife as a birthday gift.  This beautiful custom knife was handcrafted by well known Canadian knifemaker and bladesmith Brian Lyttle.  Lyttle also had a role as an extra in the film.

The engraving "CM" stands for Charles Morse

Don't forget, if you are gifted a knife please remember to give the donor a coin.  If you'd like to read more about this old tradition there's a great article titled A Penny For A Knife in the September 1999 issue of Blade Magazine.

Give him a coin. You got to give the donor a coin. Old superstition.
Ah, yes. Thank you.
Give him a coin?
If someone gives you a knife, you should give them a coin in return or it cuts the friendship.

  1. I had a story. My brother is younger than me who found a similar knife with a metal detector for children. We bought his way through this site http://collectinviolity.com/ . I advise you to buy your child, too. It will help him than to do.
