A couple of weeks ago @Chui posted some photos of knives I made on this forum but I couldn't say much about them or myself at the time as I did not have my maker's membership paid up. I guess I can now properly introduce myself and tell a bit of my story: I started making knives in 1997, was a full time maker until 2001. Seven years ago I made some multiblades but became progressively more far sighted so I gave it up. Then, in August of this year I decided to have another go as my eyes seemed to have stopped their outward wandering. I then had to learn how to make a knife while wearing optivisors, which took a while, the first couple of knives were not suitable for human consumption. Perseverance paid off: Knife nr 11 of 2019, a damascus five blade, won Best Art Folder and knife nr 15, a stockman, won Best Working Folder at the Brooklyn Knife Show, which was held in Pretoria at the end of November. I have delivered nr 15 to its very happy owner: 3 3/4"closed, SAE1070 blades and springs, relieved brass liners, bronze bolsters and pins, stabilized burl oak scales. Thank you for looking, questions and comments welcome!
