Hi my name is Daniel

I was made in Malaysia, raised in my teens in New Zealand, and have been living in Australia for the last 18 years. Now married with kids etc in Sydney, NSW
I discovered Spyderco a few years ago and have been trying to collect - now trying to use - every single one of their lineup LOL
