Reuse & Repurpose: Knife Work!

Last week I shared with you a "spoondelier," and today, I offer a Silverware Skyline. As I walked by the window of Fishs Eddy the other day, I saw New York in a whole new perspective, thanks to this Empire State Building made mostly of knives, a smaller, neighboring structure crafted out of spoons, and a Chrysler Building (not in this photo) made of forks and plates, all emulating the Manhattan skyline in flatware!
