  1. Thought I would have a crack at making my own utility style skinning knife. Saw blade for the blank and local Ironbark for the handle. Oiled finish Pins are alloy with brass insert Very happy with the result

  2. Hello all. I give this bloke in town a bit of venison from time to time. I also give him a few fallow casts as I know he mucks around making a few knifes. Last week he turns up at home with this gift. A skinning knife design made out of one of my casts and a concrete cutting blade. Hopefully I'll try it out in a few weekends. Brett

  3. Here's a few pics of my latest knife. The blade is 440c with stabilised birdseye redgum & a black/white/black spacer, stainless & brass mosaic pins and a stainless lanyard hole. The push-fit sheath is actually brown but the crappy little camera doesn't like photographing leather properly. The handle is a bit slimmer than usual as it has been made to fit a female hunter's hand. Even though redgum is a dense wood, it 's grain is a little more open than some other Aussie hardwoods, hence you can see the light reflecting off some of the open grain. It can be filled but I like to keep as much of the original texture of the wood a possible.

  4. Hi I was so fortunate recently to be given a new knife for a significant birthday. It was made by Rob Podesta from Ulladulla (0437 389 251). I would never have contemplated buying myself such as knife but as a gift I am amazed how good it looks and how good it feels. It has a buck eye burl for the handle and a nice Damascus blade. I had to ring Rob to thank him personally. He was great in providing some tips on how to look after it. He also said to make sure to use it. It annoys him when people buy his knives and then don't use them because they are so nice.
