    Hi ABF!
    Good to meet you all! I am in Sydney/

    I have a collection of knives and straight razors. Some are fancier than others but I love them all!

    I have just started learning how to make knives, so far they are very basic.

    My tools are mainly a small gas forge I made, files, hacksaw, drill press/mill and elbow grease.
    So far I have annealed a chisel and made a Kiridashi, but the chisel was of poor quality and it wont go 24 hours without oxidizing . Though I did make a nice looking bevel and heat treat successfully.

    I got some blacksmith tongs from Noric as well as some 5160 steel . I have almost finished rough cutting a small wharncliffe, just needs a little more file work before I can start on the bevel.

    I look forward to learning more and contributing where I can!
