  • Hi from Hillsmaker

    A quick note to say hi to all the other knife makers out there.

    I've been making knives on an off for six years now, operating out of a tiny under the stairs wine celler (had to empty it first) in the Adelaide Hills. Malcolm Day, formally of the Cutlers Cottage, took me under his wing and helped me sort the wheat from chaff, as he has done with a flock of aspiring makers over the years. So thanks Mal.

    Originally a geologist, I discovered the custom knife world while twiddling my internet thumbs on long late nights in a mud and thatch village in remote tropical Africa. Sweat, buzzing insects, the sound of drums in the background and me looking at damascus blades on my laptop. Now as a house dad in sedate, tranquil Adelaide, its my chance to use my hands.

    I reckon I've just got to the stage I'm proud of my work and have started selling it, the first hundred 'experiments' were either trashed, hidden under the bed or given to relatives as shed knives. I"m sure you've all been there.

    So thanks for having me

    Welcome to the forum.

          Welcome Warwick, fellow Adelaidean here. Look forward to seeing your work, and possibly making a purchase!

              thanks guys, how do I paste pics into the forum or are they all formatted as links to photobucket or similar. I'd pref to have the pic in the forum if possible ??

                Two ways to do this.

                Easiest: Simply link to your photobucket pics in your post.

                Marginally more complicated (and costs a small amount of money): Get a Knifemaker membership for only $15 for the first year which gives you, among other things, your very own sub forum where you can do your own thing and this includes the ability to upload your pics to the forum server.

                Whichever you please.

                  sounds like a membership is the way to go, how do I go about getting the funds to you. You can email me direct with your reply if you want.

                    See your PMs for info.

                    Have a look at the Knifemaker Discussion forum. You will get your own sub forum in there in which you will have moderator privileges and you can control discussion as you see fit. You can also upload your pics to the forum. There is a post in the main forum that tells you how to do this.

                    Knifemaker membership also affords you all the priveleges of Gold membership.

                    Enjoy!

                        Ok, i've established a forum called Hillsmaker to show off some of my work. I'm still clutzing aruond trying to get the pics formatted and in place correctly so, have a look but be patient while I muck around with it.
