We don't often get links with Australian knife info, I am glad to have it!
I have always wondered, do you have factories in Australia that make pocket knives, or are most imported?
Sadly, there is no Cutlery Industry in Australia.
The only evidence I have found for pocketknife manufacture in Australia was the WW2 and post war production from a limited number of engineering firms who tooled up to make knives for the war effort. The most prolific and the most long lasting was Whittingslowe Engineering in Adelaide. They did not survive the post war era and closed their doors in the 1950's. As you see by their post war newspaper advertisement they made a range of knives.
