About WildFire Gear 

Born and Raised in the North island of New Zealand I moved across the ditch to Sydney Australia when I was 19. I grew up spending most of my time outdoors in the bush looking for critters, fishing, camping and exploring nature. I have always been intrigued with bespoke hobbies or which some refer to as dying arts. After I was made redundant in 2015 from my full time job in transport for 12 years, I had the awesome opportunity to try and make my hobbies and love of creating hand crafted items into a small business. Thus WildFire Gear was born. I have been doing Leather Work for around 8 years now and have always made things from wood as far back as I can remember. The Knife Making bug bit me hard and have been making knives for a few years now. I have enjoyed the opportunity to exhibit at the Sydney Knife Show for the past two years.  Creating items that are functional, beautiful and are built to last is what WildFire Gear is all about.
