  • About time.

    G'day.
    Yes, it's about time I introduce myself. I've been a member for a while but never posted before.
    My name is Paul, I am from Mount Nebo in Queensland and spend far too much time in my shed making knives.
    I grew up in France where I was inspired by my dad who is a keen collector of edge weapons and my grand dad who grew up in the village of Laguiole. As a kid, I was surrounded by knives, swords, halberds, suits of armours, helmets and axes which were much better than plastic toys!
    The first knife I owed was a small opinel that was given to me when I was 6 years old. As I grew up I owed many old Laguiole knives that my grand dad restored.
    When he passed away, I found myself without any one to make me knives and started to make my own.
    I have now been making knives on and off for about 7 years, but got more serious (obsessed) in the last 3 years.

    Cheers.

    Paul

    Welcome to the forum. Don't forget to post some pics of your work.
    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.
