  • New guy on the block! (PIC HEAVY)

    My names Braydon, I'm 18 and a new knife maker, I made my first knife in late November of 2012 and have been hooked ever since! Thought it would be a good idea to get on the Aussie Blade Forums and chat with some other makers and knife enthusiasts! I've been lurking around here for a while but I figured it was about time to sign up!

    Here's some of my blades so far, they're not pretty but they're knives nevertheless!













    3 of my blades aren't in my possession anymore, so I can't show you those. One is being tested by a British Army Commando in the jungles of Brunei and the other 2 are in the USA!

    I look forward to hearing from you guys and getting to know some of you! Cheers guys,
    Braydon

              It's doesn't work as well as I thought it would. The general idea behind that knife was to have a blade that can be used as a hatchet/tomahawk once lashed to a stick. After 10 hits the paracord begins loosening and the blade starts to move around. It can chop, that's for sure but the blade movement makes it difficult to work with. I'm in the process of making a 2nd version of it with a ton of improvements.
