The knife man

On the streets of Siem reap in Cambodia you can find this wondrous creature, known to me as the knife man. He carries around a mattress his knives attached in a circle of wire and his hand held stereo playing hard core techno as he pounds the streets looking for people to watch him jump through his circle of knives surrounded by a ring of fire. I used to actively seek him out he is fascinating , he never talks to anyone. He is one of life's enigmas with great scars which is obviously an occupational hazard and wonderful tattoos that somebody says he does himself.
I want to learn to dive through a flame filled knife ring!
