  • Hello from Perth

    Hello all.

    My names Frank, im from Perth and have have just got into knife making. Ive made training knives for a few years and have decided to start teaching myself this great art form. Ive set up a small shop in my shed and have been collecting recycled steel (files etc) to start practising on.

    Im interested in functional and affordable pieces and I like all blades associated with asian martial arts. Ive just finished my first knife (I'll post it in tbe custom thread) and have heaps of questions etc.

    Id like to network with knife makers in Perth especially and am excited about finishing my first piece.
