Hi Everyone,

Having migrated from Fiji last year. I am interested in learning about Bushcraft. I live in Hamilton and was wandering if there was any events coming up around the Waikato?

I have done a little camping and tramping through the dense jungles of Fiji. I don't have any experience camping out in New Zealand bushes and winter survival. I would certainly love to learn though.

My interest are mainly knife making, having made over 100 knives from simple saw blades to old files to some CPM steels. I also have made the odd attempt at making a long bow.

I uploaded a photo of my bushcraft knife made from an old nicholson file.

Is there a group in Hamilton?

So nice meeting you all.

Welcome to the site Philip, I hope you're able to network with other bushcraft enthusiasts in the Waikato area.

All the best, take care out there.
