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 12 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 5 years now. I have enjoyed the opportunity to exhibit at the Sydney Knife Show for the past 3 years. Creating items that are functional, beautiful and are built to last is what WildFire Gear is all about.
