52 tons of knives & other stuff used in 2012 Olympic Stadium

Ever heard of recycling knives? No, not melting and then re-forging old blades into new ones. I’m talking recycling entire knives and other metal items seized by London’s Police Dept. and then using them to build major structures, like this one-

I’m all for recycling and all, but my question is this- what are collectors of old knives to do if there are no more old knives to collect. Today’s knives are the old knives of tomorrow.
