Why Spend With Us?
“Hi there – My name is Tyler and I am 16 years old! I keep myself busy creating old school hand forged knives, with a special interest in damascus. I am fully self taught and dedicate every spare moment forging out my latest projects”.
Tyler has worked hard to create his own set up in his own makeshift shed in rural NSW on the Mid North Coast. Tyler is self taught and shares all his skills and tools with his mate Rourke. Most days after school and pretty much at any time that he is home he is down in his ‘workshop’. Tylers instagram account is tb_kustom_knives. Most of the items you will see are made by Tyler and if you can’t see something you like – get in contact as most of Tyler’s work is custom ordered knives and pieces made to order for the customer. He is so busy doing his custom orders it is hard to always find the time to add new stock items to the shop. At times, Tyler’s mate, Rourke who is also self taught, comes out and forges whenever he can! Rourkes instagram account is rh_kustom_knives.
More recently, Tylers younger sister Jayde (12 years) has started making and selling a small jewellery range. Named “Gems by Jayde”, Jayde incorporates her love of crystals into her work. Jayde is self -taught and has managed to create her own ‘DEPOP’ account and has been busy making and selling after only a short time. From time to time we will post some of Jaydes Creations up here too!
We were a lot luckier then many around us with only having lost fences and stand alone items during the horrific November 2019 fires. However, due to the effect of the fires and the current crisis (and living out of town and not yet old enough to drive) it is difficult to find work … this hobby keeps us busy whilst also providing a means to continue to do what we love. Thank you to everyone for your support!!
