  • Hello from WA

    Hey Guys
    Joel from mandurah here, I've just really started making knifes this last year thru a build along run on youtube, Made our first knives completely by hand (par the drill). Now I'm hooked, I forged my 2 knife and now I'm onto a file knife, with another on the list. I'm interested in learning more skills about knife making and possibly getting into a Blade sport club next year. Who knows I'll make my own knife for that too I guess. I'm into my youtube channel and learning a lot thru members there, Anyway oh and also I'm trying to build my ww2 collection of v44's/machetes, and such.

    Thanks for reading

    Welcome to the forum.
    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 to the forum.

        You will find the members here very helpful with adding to your knifemaking skills.

        Those of us who inhabit the Military Connection sub forum will be looking forward to seeing some of the knives in your collection. Drop in for a yarn some time.
