“Knives are a very important tool- whether it’s self defense or cutting a tomato. It’s something that you use pretty much everyday… It’s one of the earliest tools that humans developed.” [4:00]

“You have to respect the animal enough to get as much out of it as possible, and to do that, you need the right tools.” [7:30]
