    Hi Everyone,
    Just signed up for the forum, checking out the BladeSport Events. I have been collecting since a teenager, but now, at 52 am really enjoying knifework of quality. I spent 26 years in the Police and now teach Computing at TAFE.

    Welcome to the forum.
    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.

                Hi there Mick., welcome to the forum.
                Over the years I have known quite a few police. They all liked and collected knives, guns etc. Just goes to show, police are real guys too.

                            Thanks for the welcome. I will post pics when I have time to sit down and do it. Had a bit of trouble re-logging in. Seems OK now. I used to carry a small Kershaw folder when working and found it extremely useful. Always kept it as sharp as I could though. Then finally upgraded to an Applegate Fairbairne Combat Folder. That was (and still is) a useful knife. Used it cut everything from plastic packing tape to cable ties and seat belts. Not so much now though. Still have my first knife, a sheath knife 4!/2 inch blade Solingon. Used it for hunting and camping when I was a kid and taught myself to throw with it.
