    My wife is Canadian and I'm in NY but we travel up to northern Ontario a few times a year to where she grew up to visit family up there. I collect mostly fixed blade Hunting, Survival, Combat knives. I used to work as an Apprentice Tool and Die maker as well as in Heat Treating so I have a good working knowledge of tool steels and their properties. I'm here to learn more about Canadian Knifemakers.

    Great to have you here (no passport required:)).

    I think the biggest difference between Canadian and American makers is availability of materials. We don't have the volume of either knife makers or suppliers here, so we often have to spend more time building our own tools and such.

    I recently aquired a nice fixed blade hunting knife on a Canadian online auction with the name " BEYER " stamped on it and am looking to find out who made it and some background behind it as it's a very impressive piece! And seeing as my wife is Canadian and we're both retired, we have the time to explore and meet some knifemakers.

    Hey Hawkeye welcome to the forum! Do you happen to have a photo of the knife stamped ‘Beyer?’

    I found a German maker by the name of Uwe Beyer. And an Austrian straight-razor company by the name of Koraat Knives linked to a person named Ulrik Beyer.

    Welcome Hawkeye. Never been able to consistently post pictures here successfully, but you could try posting them on imgur or flickr and linking them.

    When I get my PC set up sometime maybe I’ll see if I can make a video on how to do it since it’s sort of a strange process.

    Flickr is Easy. Upload your pics to your Flickr account/ photo stream. Then see the middle arrow pointing right with the tail (see first photo)? You click on that.

    Then click on BBCode (see second photo) and copy that URL link and simply paste into your Canadian Knife-Maker forum post. *Thumbs up* You’re done!
