    David Mamet's Notes: Here please find various knives which I used, collected, or had been given to me. I was once rather ill for a long period, and had before I got knocked off my feet, bought a knife collectors magazine to research something or other for writing. It featured an article on custom knifemakers and many of their ads. In bed I wrote to them and collected their catalogues and bought, and then traded, many of their knives. I got interested in knife collecting and here please find a bunch of them.
