  • Newbie from Queensland

    Hi all, just another new knife nut from Queensland, always liked knives, somehow got sucked into the knife world recently while researching for a gift for a friend. Now I have recently purchased a few new knives, very excited to be learning new things.

    Current knives that I own that are worthy of mention are
    Becker bk 16 and bk17 , Becker necker,
    Opinels in number 7 and 8
    Leatherman sidekick
    And have an izula 2 on the way

    Would love to continue to learn more from you guys, hopefully without too big of a hit to the wallet. Cheers

            Welcome to the forum. Nice to see you've included a couple of Opinels.

            Consider a #2, #6 and a #10 to round out your collection.

            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.

                  Thanks for the welcome guys,

                  Regarding the opinels,I love their simplicity and I am quite happy with the no. 7 and no. 8 (have 2 8s , one in inox and the other in carbon steel)
                  The other models either seem too large or too small to me, I'll have a play around at the shop the next time I get the chance anyway.
