G##day Mate

I知 Dougie from Australia. I知 a 61 year old Navy Veteran. I知 about to retire, & chose knife making as a retirement hobby (I can稚 go fishing every day). I致e not yet made my first knife as I知 building all my equipment first. I致e built my forge, & I知 currently building a 2x72 belt grinder. I just enjoy making things more than buying things. I知 sure I値l have some dumb questions for you all.
Anyway, just wanted to introduce myself & say G##day.

Ps. Why why am I getting hashtags in place of some letters?

Welcome to Knife Network! We'll be happy to prov##e suggestions so ask away!

The ## is because of scammers posted for fake documentation so those combos that have that letter sequence get censored.

If you're not making mistakes then you're not trying hard enough

Welcome to the jungle. Just so's you know, once you get deeper into bladesmithing your fishing gear will start collecting dust and your wife will want to fill your "hole in the water" with dirt and flowers.
Wish you the best in your adventure and don't be a stranger - at least no stranger than the rest of us addicts.
