Portland, OR. Portland knifemaker Alex Horn has created several commemorative knives from the rubble of the Twin Towers and says, “On this day, 20 years ago, the steel inside of this knife fell from a great height.” The proceeds from two knives will be donated to a charity called Tuesday’s Children. The nonprofit is still working with families whose lives were forever changed when the towers were brought down by a terrorist attack on September 11th, 2001. Alex Horn says of the creative project, “I was considering where the steel came from and it definitely made me handle the steel with more care.” The benefit auction will be on the knifemaker’s Instagram starting on Saturday, September 11th, and the bidding will close at midnight, Monday, September 13th.
In addition to 9/11 families, Tuesday’s Children also works with families, “Who have been forever changed by terrorism, military conflict or mass violence.”
Many people have reached out to Alex Horn. He is thanking them for their kind words and for sharing their stories saying, “It’s been an honor.”
