  • Hello everyone

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Dan.
    I live in Melbourne

    My Dad and I recently went to knife show.
    I met lots of knife makers and saw some great knives.
    I especially like one that Karim Haddad had on his table.
    Many thanks to everyone that took the time to talk me and for all the good tips.

    I'm in the middle of making my first knife.
    It's a DH Russell skinner.
    I've done the ricasso with my dad and we've flat ground the blade.
    Bit more filing before we get it heat treated.
    I'm thinking of using either Jarrah or blackwood for the handle.
    I'll probably ask for a bit of help when we get closer to putting it all together.

    If I get a chance I'll put a few pics up.

    Regards,

    Dan

    Hi Dan and welcome.

    Yep, Karim does some great work. I've been to his sharpening course and he's a great guy - is always willing to answer questions.

    Good luck with the first knife. Sounds like a nice project for you and your dad to work on.

                  Welome aboard mate, you know you've come to the right place.
                  I still remember making my first knife with my dad when I was a teenager. An experience I will treasure for the rest of my life.
