editor’s say

As we’re getting ready to go to print with this fourth issue, I can reflect on the last 12 month’s journey. From conception, I had no doubt that this magazine was a good idea and exactly what our hobby needed. The support and encouragement we’ve received over the last 12 months has been nothing short of overwhelming! Right across the board, from the advertisers (without whom this publication would not be possible), to the contributors and of course you – the readers! Then of course there’s the small, dedicated team of helpers making this publication not just possible, but to continue the level of quality with every new issue. Personally, I managed to attend all but one major knife show in Australia over the last 12 months, and that has been…

sharper than a razor

Knife Grinders www.knifeGrinders.com.au Sharpening is the final step before boxing a custom knife for delivery. Before that, the knifemaker hafts the blade. Before that, the blade is polished. Before that, the blade is heat treated, hardened and tempered. Before that, the blade is cut out and shaped. Before that, the knife is designed. I only skipped about 50 more steps between the moment the knifemaker conceives a new knife, and we sharpen it. Knifemaker Lawrence Cheng talks about his path to the knife making passion: “After serving in the Australian Regular Army for seven years, through a series of converging opportunities, I attended a Damascus steel and knife making class at Tharwa Valley Forge facilitated by Karim and Leila Haddad. At a later date I spent a couple of days with Bruce Barnett at the Windy Hollow Forge in Bridgetown W.A.…

2017 canberra knife show

I’ve been to my fair share of knife shows and I thought I had an idea of what to expect when I came to the 2017 Canberra Knife Show, but as it turns out, I don’t think any of us had any idea of what lay in store for us! Canberra Knife Show has found its new home at Cuppacumbalong. This is not just a venue, this is an artisan centre with over 180 years of history! This homestead was built in the 1920’s (the third homestead built here) and has seen a lot of history, but now it seems it has found a new purpose. This is now part of the largest knife making school in the World! On 3rd December, knife makers have travelled thousands of kilometres across five states…

knife restoration

www.australianmilitaryknives.com To do or not to do? That is the question! At some stage we all come across a knife that we feel can do with a bit of a clean. Then arises the question. How far should we take it? I need to establish one thing very clearly to start with. If you have an old worn, perhaps rusty and maybe a bit battered knife, no matter what you do you cannot restore the knife to new condition. Trying to will only destroy any collecting value that the knife may have. The best you can hope to do is restore the knife to a similar condition to that of a used and cared for knife. Even that may not be achievable. The first thing to do is establish why you want to clean…

knife art association hosts 2018 blade symposium

If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the past few years, it’s that when the Knife Art Association puts on an event, it’s going to be something special. So when I was invited to report on this, I pounced onto it like a fat kid onto a cookie! Without any pre-conceived ideas, tent, sleeping bag and refreshments, with my old mate and trusted travelling companion Neville, we aim the Mazda ute toward Cuppacumbalong in the ACT to take part in the 2018 Blade Symposium. But truth be told, If there was ever going to be a knife making festival – this is it! With over 100 Aussie and international makers gathered here to share their knowledge, experience and broaden their skills. Presentations and demonstrations from 21 guest presenters covering every facet…

cover story

The Symposium is as much social event as it is a learning experiment. This is where old mates catch up and new friendships are forged (pun intended). The most popular extracurricular activity of the Symposium was undoubtedly the “speed forging event”. This was as much fun for the spectators as it was for the participants. With seven anvils ringing in chorus, and forges glowing orange as dusk settled on the peaceful valley, the race was on! The goal is to transform a small lump of steel into a knife-shaped object in just 20 minutes. This is a pretty tall order, but plenty of competitors rose to the challenge. You could bring your own hammer if you were willing to take a 30 second handicap. Well worth it by the looks…
