editors say

Honorary MemberMy passionsWelcome to the first issue of our new publication. This is a celebration, and sharing in the experience we get from making, using, holding or just seeing a fine knife! For too long these have been demonised by the media, politicians and scare mongers and it’s time for change. This is not a political campaign but rather an education that a knife is man’s oldest tool, and since the dawn of time, like the wheel, it has helped shape our civilization. Yes, there have been wars and there have been atrocities committed, but that is not the fault of the tool – it’s the fool holding it!I built my first knife with my father when I was 12 years old, it was simple (and colourful) and it had…

the evolution of the modern tactical folding knife

Recently I had a realisation, namely that, despite collecting and enjoying knives for at least the last 20 odd years, I was ignorant of a significant portion of modern knife history. I speak of course of the period of transition which resulted in the modern tactical folder which we know and love today.Now, first things first, the term ‘tactical’. It has become part of the vernacular when talking knives, but, where does it come from? What does it mean? Is it just fancy-pants marketing spin or something more? I decided to ask some of my more intellectually gifted (i.e. Western Australian) knife enthusiast alumni what the term meant to them and if they knew where it came from. Strangely enough, I couldn’t get a straight answer, one said survival knife,…

adam parker course

Full MemberThe chill of a brisk winter weekend had no chance of cooling the enthusiasm of the students who gathered at the workshop of Adam Parker for one of his basic stock removal knife making courses this July. The preliminary discussion centered on steel selection and knife design, the four inch drop point Adam’s choice of style for classes as it teaches all the basic elements of knife construction from hollow grinding to fitting a slotted guard, giving students an excellent grounding in knife making techniques that they can then use on their own knife making journey.In recent years the surge of interest in knife making has created a demand for knowledge that almost surpasses what technology can offer. It was this need that helped Adam in his decision to…

beginners’ steel

Full MemberIf you are new to knife making, the vast and complex array of available steels can be daunting when it comes to choosing a starting point for your edged creation. The simplest approach to stock removal is to start with bar steel for a couple of reasons - the first is that you have a known steel which will give predictable results during the heat treatment processes and secondly, most of early attempts will end up as grinding dust or scrap in the bin. Reasonably priced and easy to source steel, means it’s not too devastating on the wallet to chew through a bit during practice, but it also will give you a great knife upon completion.When I started out, 440C and ATS34 were the go-to steels. Both are…
