Projectknife is closing its doors

We are sad to announce the end of a 10 year long journey. Projectknife, and Projectfork before that, has not been able to attract a large enough audience to sustain itself any longer. We have tried our best to revitalise the project with a fresh start, but it was not enough. With downloads and sales in rapid decline, we are forced to discontinue any future development and support of the project. The website will remain online for at least another year so you can still access all the files that are available at this time. We would like to thank those who supported us and we wish you all the best and good success for your future.
