I was the same way. A good friend and former co-worker of mine is also a knife maker. He makes some downright beautiful knives. Many blades he crafted from discarded bandsaw blades we used at that employer (about 2" wide and almost 1/8" thick). Some he made in damascus - those were my favorite. The handles were made from any manner of material, some purchased most made by hand. He was into wood burls for a while, just gorgeous.
I believe the appropriate metaphor here involves a river of excrement and a Native American water vessel without any means of propulsion.
