They planted so many knives in me that when they give me a flower at first I don’t understand what it is. It takes time.
Henry Charles “Hank” Bukowski Jr.,born Heinrich Karl Bukowski (IPA: [buːˈkɒfski], also known by the pseudonym Henry Chinaski,his literary alter ego (August 16, 1920 – March 9, 1994) was an American poet and writer.
He has written six novels, hundreds of short stories and thousands of poems, for a total of over sixty books.
The content of these treats of his life, characterized by a morbid relationship with alcohol, frequent sexual experiences (described in a realistic way and without too many euphemisms) and stormy relationships with people.
The literary current to which it is often associated is that of dirty realism.
“The profound truth, to do anything, to write, to paint, lies in simplicity. Life is profound in its simplicity.”
Charles Bukowski’s sharp quote I love because it encapsulates and somehow shares a part of my philosophy, even with regard to the knife, simple and essential, perhaps that’s why Loveless’s par excellence Drop Point knife is and has been a school for everyone.
You can make a thousand curves and incisions but if the knife lacks essence it is like a well-dressed pyre, it always remains a pyre.
The essence is felt, it is perceived beyond appearances!
