The sculpture stood 27ft high and was installed outside Liverpool Cathedral. Created by Alfie Bradley, it is a memorial to for whose lives have been affected by knife crime.

Alfie designed and created the artwork single-handedly at the British Ironworks Centre. 100,000 knives were surrendered and collected during nationwide amnesties in 2015/2016. The Centre provided knife banks for the amnesties with 43 police forces across the country involved.
