    Welcome tino. We love the Swedish! I am especially fond of Swedish axes. I love my small collection of Gransfors axes.

        That's OK K2 - I have trouble with that as well.

        And welcome aboard tino. What is it about neck knives that you like?

          No tino is swiss from the swissgerman part - I live near the capitol of Switzerland and this is Berne, not Zuerich, Basel or Geneva.
          Zuerich is the banking place, Basel the chemical city and Geneva, there ist the UN and as well banking....... :-)

          to explain where Switzerland is in europe........ Sweden is the thumb of the right hand and Switzerland is in the mittle of the hand. the fingers are France, Spain and Portugal ....rughly.

          Hey nightowl, vo wo chunsch de du ? dr dialaekt isch doch vor oschtschwitz ?

          Hi Antonio, I have a neckknife from Dav Winch and a utility fron David Brodziak

            And looks like you're about to add a Del Raso also - congrats! I have a few Swiss watches in my collection, so I guess we have trade relations of sorts?!

              ABF is certainly starting to pick up a bit of an international flavour, good to see.
              Quantum physics is a bit of a passion of mine. It's extraordinary. There's a branch of mathematics that is based on lunacy, and that's wonderful.

                Welcome Tino

                I am sure that you will enjoy it here.

                While we are very serious about our knives as you can see there is a lot of light hearted banter as well.

                    Great investments. We sometimes forget in Oz that we have many fine makers who are recognised internationally
