  • G'day!

    Hi all,

    Neophyte knifemaker here from sunny Townsville, QLD. Was advised by Corin over at Bushcraftoz to make my own bushcraft knife a few months ago and have been obsessed with the idea ever since. I've done a lot a reading while gathering requisite tools and have only to purchase a grinder, which I'm getting some good advice about from the kind folks here. There are some truly talented knifemakers here and many, many stunning knives to look at! If I can one day produce something half as nice I'll be well pleased. Looking forward to posting my first effort and getting some feedback. At the moment I'm making a few firesteels which have come out rather nice.
