Why a small knife show? Aren't big ones allowed Down-Under?
Why a small one?
This one has been put together by a knifemaker near Canberra, as I understand it for local knifemakers and enthusists, but if your interested come on down type of affair.
Population (lack of)
Tyanny of distance
Size of the venue, if you blink going through where its being held you will miss it.
There are bigger one's (compared to what happens in the USA minuscule) periodically held in the major cities.
There are some outstanding craftsman making knives to a very high standard in this country.
The catch is the general population generally wont pay more than $20 for a knife, so these shows aren't as big as they might be.
Still things seem to be improving, albeit slowly.
