“There’s something about a good knife that speaks to you. Call it primal.”
Always an admirer of skilled work, John took a special interest in knives when he cut himself on a fine kitchen knife given to him by a friend.
"I knew then I wanted to create one myself. I decided to take a knife class but living on Saba meant I would wait months before my schedule worked to attend a course. So I started watching YouTube videos, a lot of them! I create each knife with a purpose. Whether a survival knife, chef knife or fillet knife. The only problem is, once I create it, I want to keep it."
John Magor has been living on Saba since 1989. He came to Saba as a dive instructor but continues to wear many hats from hair stylist to photographer, dive shop owner, diesel mechanic, compressor technician, fabricator and his latest endeavor, knife maker.
