砲彈鋼刀

文‧莊坤儒 圖‧莊坤儒


蕞爾金門島歷經「823砲戰」近百萬發砲彈的攻擊,島上遺留了無數的彈殼。金合利的吳增棟師傅利用當年戰爭的砲彈碎片,數十年如一日地打造一把把鋒利的鋼刀,成為今日豐富佳餚的廚刀。

鋼槌千鈞、火光交錯之際,恍若當年砲戰的激烈景況。

Kinmen was bombarded with nearly a million artillery shells during the Second Taiwan Strait Crisis of 1958, leaving countless shell casings strewn across the island.

The ringing hammer blows and blazing sparks are reminiscent of the intense artillery battles of years ago.
