I came across this site purely by accident the other evening so joined up as I've never been a member of a knife collectors/makers forum or club before.
My names Gareth and I live in South Wales (UK).
I have been collecting knives and occasionally other weapons since I was a very young child and over the years have built up my collection as well as built up my knowledge from reading books & other resources.
I enjoy making things using my hands as a keen DIYer, model maker and car enthusiast so have also made a few knives over the years. Mostly from kits/blade blanks tbh but once I get my garage at home fully sorted I will be trying my hand at making knives from scratch.
I collect all sorts of knives from folding blades to fixed blades, small and big as well as unusual knives when I come across them. Once I get a feel for the forum I might get some pictures sorted to share but for now I just thought I'd introduce myself.
