The JVR Way
My dad, JVR, was a maker's maker. But for him, to make was not a label, it was a way of living. He had a lifelong passion to cut, shape, and assemble metal and wood into something of beauty and utility. He made precision scientific instruments, furniture, jewelry, boats, fishing rods, and even fishing reels. He tied his own flies for fishing, but first he made the clamps, vises, and bobbins that he used to tie them.
It’s no surprise then, that when dad made Krupnik, he made the tools he needed. Like a hand made knife, with the blade curved just so, for cutting and chopping spices. Or a mallet, machined from a billet of aluminum, with the handle knurled for better grip.
The JVR Way? Make it yourself. Make it by hand. Make it right. And put the tool back where you found it.
