The suit of swords doesn’t always have the best reputation in Tarot. It often represents mental battles, verbal assaults and/or general conflict and disruption.
And though typically considered intelligent, the Court Cards in this suit are sometimes stereotyped as arrogant, avaricious, and even mean.
But Joel Bukiewicz is a prime example of the more positive sides of the Sword mentality. He makes handmade knives and is the owner of Cut Brooklyn.
He’s intelligent, hard working, and clearly into sharp things, but he makes them to be used for good.
He started his career off as a fiction writer, which interestingly enough is another perfect job for the communicative Sword-type, but he gave it up when he discovered the joy in making knives.
Take a look at the Made by Hand video below to hear Bukiewicz describe his transition from a Page of Swords to the King he is today.
It takes work to be a master, but it’s definitely worth it.
