  • Hi there!

    My name's Col.
    I'm based in Sth Western Sydney, work in Quality Control in the sheet metal industry.
    Came from a metal trades background originally.
    Major hobby over the years has been photography, but have only recently switched to digital from film, so still learning my way around my camera.
    Have been interested in knives forever, currently have a few folders plus a fixed blade and a necker.
    Just purchased some blanks and researching what handles and fittings I want to use and finding out what's available in Sydney area.
    New to Forum concept of communication.
    Any help greatly appreciated - will be exploring the forum, may not have a lot to contribute initially.
