  • G'day all.

    Hi forum members,
    I just noticed this section and thought i best introduce myself.

    Been interested in knives from an early age and started buying knives from Aussie Disposals and Kmart in my early teens. (anyone remember "the black eagle?")

    Got into mainly Spyderco's and similar quality knives in my early twenties, then kind of lost interest for fifteen-twenty years.

    Somehow, recently became interested in the hobby again, and made the mistake of getting on blade forums and looking at knife reviews on youtube etc..

    While I'm sure many have a similar story, i once thought Spyderco and the like was as good as it gets, but OH NO!!. Now i find myself coming up with another reason why i need one more Strider or Chris Reeve or Emerson or...........GULP!

    Anyway, enjoying my newly rediscovered hobby and look forward to being part of a community with fellow knife enthusiasts.

    Cheers Rob.
