These knives are used for cutting the uncut leaves of magazines and papers . Fig . 1 of the-drawings shows such a knife . B is thefblade and H is the handle . Use hard wood having a fine grain . Hickory , hard mapleiyfine grained oak , osage orange and other % woods , will answer . . Make the knife at least eight / inches long .

And he looked down over himself , half in pride , half iii shame . This was too mu...
