  • New Member Intro

    Hey Guys,
    Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Dan, I moved to Perth last year from Northern California. My father is a full-time knife maker there and he taught me his trade (at least some of it). I haven't made any knives in 12 years but just started back up again. Just wanted to give a shout out and I look forward to getting to know some of you.

    Thanks,
    Dan

                    Hi Richard,
                    No, my dad is very old school = no computers. For those of you who have been around the knife world for awhile you may recognize his name, Lloyd Pendleton. If not for his custom knives you may know of the Cold Steel knives that have his name.

                      Hi Matt,
                      I am located in Kallaroo. Glad to know there are some knife guys here in WA. I have to admit I am a little suprised at the amount of interest here.

                        Thank you all for your words of welcome. I look forward to sharing with all of you here.

                        I'll try to post some pics of a few knifes I still have around.


                        Cheers,

                          Dan, your dad's name (and work) is legendary - but you knew that already ...
                          Some big shoes to fill there, hope you learned something from him.

                            Good stuff Dan,

                            Im about an hour south of you. Ross Yeats who is a member of the guild is in Hillary's, the next suburb down from you. He forges some nice Damascus!

                            We are planning for a ABF get together/hammer in over winter. Everyone will be welcome!
