I made a knife out of slate when I was a kid. We called it a “magic knife” because it was so incredibly sharp it seemed like it could cut through anything! We would get our fingers sliced up and wouldn’t even realize it. We would keep it in a secret hiding place in the woods and then call upon its power when needed.

Then that jerk Jamie from three doors down decided to steal it one day and tried to stab a rock. It shattered like a mirror and cut his arm and forehead. Jamie’s mom came over and yelled at my mom for letting me make a knife, and my mom told her what to go do with herself. This started a feud which ended our annual neighborhood 4th of July party.
