  • Hello everyone at ABF!

    As I have matured over the last few years so has my taste in knife collecting. I have discovered that my current taste is inclined to, but not strictly to tactical style frame lock flipper action blades.

    My goal is to start a area on my collection dedicated to Australian made customs somewhat meeting this criteria.

    I have just signed up today and started looking around at the different threads / posts etc. and it looks as though there are so many helpful people around.

    As I am new to the Australian custom knife market and ABF I would greatly appreciate any help or direction anyone can point me in to kick off my Aust custom collection journey.

    Looking around I see there is some incredibly talented makers that I had no idea existed in the country (sad I know) and with the help and input of the friendly members of ABF I would love to show my support for the market by making some exciting purchases.

    Thanking you in advance,

      Welcome and very nice intro. I can see you found Nate's thread. Good start! Keep eye out to see if Zac Cheong is going to do another run of his flippers. A lot of people (including me) are hanging for another run.

                  There is also the Adelaide show coming up where Zac might have some available.
