The Australian Blade Symposium brings together the very best of knife making in Australia. If you have an interest in edged tools and how they are made, then this is the premier event for you. From the beginner to the advanced, the Symposium will have something for everyone.

Learn from some of Australia’s very best knife makers and bladesmiths as they share their secrets to manufacturing the perfect knife. See blades get forged and ground and learn the intricacies of the heat treatment. Learn to fit handles and new methods to finish your blades from some of Australia’s best.

Along with the learning based sessions, the Symposium is known for bringing the community together where you’ll be able to meet other knife makers and bladesmiths, share your experiences and get involved in the social dinners on Friday and Saturday nights. We also encourage all attendees to bring their work and take part in a mini knife show and market place on Saturday night.
