Default Hello

Just a quick intro about me and to say hello.

I'm returning to making knives after a twenty-year gap (career and family). I started after coming across a copy of 'Custom Knifemaking' at a gun-show and went on to make a few knives by stock-removal and smithing.

Boy have things changed since those days ! Mainly in the availabilty of materials - I was limited to what I could scrounge at the car-wreakers or using O1. Also in the number of other people making knives in the UK.

First build is an Enzo trapper handle job for a friend's 50th birthday pressie. Then hopefully I'll get a grinder sorted out and actually make some from scratch.

Howdo,

A lot of great makers post here and I'm sure that any additional contributions from you will be welcomed by all regardless of your past or present skill levels - I don't have any to offer unfortunately but really enjoy seeing those of others.
