Tasmanian knifemaker

Australian knife maker Bismarck Metalcraft is a Tasmanian maker of quality knives, swords, cutlery, armour and other fine steel products.

It is an Australian registered craft business, in operation since 1988, owned and operated by Ken Bradford and is located in the township of Deloraine, Tasmania, Australia.

Bismarck Metalcraft produces:

The aim of the business is to produce fine quality edgeware using modern steel. Each piece is handcrafted to an extremely high standard and all blades are heat treated professionally. The steels used are: ATS34, D2, Stavax, Mushet m, 440c and 440b - and the new super-steel CPM S30V.

A certificate of origin is presented with each purchase, confirming that it is a collectors piece as well as a user piece, guaranteeing the quality.

Bismarck Metalcraft does not produce articles that are illegal or restricted in any state of Australia and does not sell to any retail outlets in Australia or overseas - only directly to the public. All the products are hand engraved in an old English font with the Bismarck name.
