          Hi Gibbo,

          Great to see another knifemaker in Sydney coming in out of the dark. Post some pictures of your work! There are quite a few of us in Sydney that meet pretty regularly. Normally either at my place or alternately at Keith Fludder's workshop down in Tahmoor.

          t would be great to meet you. We had 30 odd people at the last one. Keith's next one is promising to be even bigger.

          They are a great opportunity to discuss our hobby, and try different things, materials, tools and so on.

          The last one can be seen here

          *Edit* Just noticed you already signed up for keith's hammer in!
