I know a knife maker does some great work but won’t sell them to anyone I have been trying to get a skinning knife out of him for years. I ended up buying a kershaw folder and grinding the tip round so as to not Pearce the skins

“Canberra has a small but growing knife making community.”

The really good ones are trained at the Alexander Maconochie Centre.
