  • Hi from Bris Vegas

    Hi All,

    Been a lurker for some time but finally got around to posting due to a recent Exchange purchase.

    Live and work in Brisbane. Collect many different styles and brands. Favourites are Spyderco's (I know - how original)

    I have a few safe queens but have predominantly bought all as eventual users, but thanks to certain legislative changes many of those potential users may not have their edges sullied now.

    Also into camping, kayaking and hiking and hope to capitalise on some property offers to practice some bush crafting.

    I have also been lucky enought to marry a great girl who also appreciates the beauty of a well made blade. She is currently collecting the "Tattoo" Spyderco series and is the proud owner of a pink Delica for work and a pink Izula for camping. Has a pink SAK in her handbag as well. I think she likes pink

    Well that's me. I'm always on the look out to expand my collection so I'll keep lurking about the Exchange section, but will be checking out the rest of the forums. I am looking to get some custom leather work done for a couple of users so any guidance appreciated (unfortunately don't have the space to do this myself at this time).
