  • Gday from the tropics

    Gday everyone my name is michael and i am i new forum member

    soooo...... i just thought i would share abit about myse

    i am 17 years old..and yes i know a 17 yo playing with knifes but unlike most 17 year olds today i am quite responsible and mature and would never use a knife other than its intended purpose like for example most of my blades are for bushcaraft.

    i live up in the tropics in cairns QLD.

    So how did i get into knifes. well i always thought they were cool as a little kit but at that age having a knife could be considered Taboo

    so at the age of 10 i bought my own knife at a local camping store witch i know know wasn't the best of quality

    so as a grew older i started to collect more knifes then i really got addicted when i got into camping and bushcraft. I started collecting more expencive knifes like spyderco's

    witch comes to today i currently have to many knifes to count through to spyderco's to ontario's/cold steel's/falkniven's/mora's/ the list could go on and on

    so thats about it knife wise
    hope you enjoyed reading
