If you remember, I had once posted a question regarding martial arts equipment, and some of you had been of great help to me. I am eternally thankful for that.
I have now decided to graduate to bladesmithingn(Knife making) as a primary business. I am also going to diversify into mountaineering gear and comic weapon replicas. I have already found a few interested parties in Singapore, who are both collectors and suppliers, and am in the process of negotiating with them and providing them with samples. And also have a workshop which I expect to be fully functional by March 2018, after which I plan to go into production. Am still working on my designs, parallel to pursuing a degree in Product Design.

I now would like to hear your insights on the following question - "Do you think an India-based version of Cold Steel will survive in the Indian market? Are there enough people buying knives in this country?"

...hello sir!!!
I would like to know if manufacturing/blacksmithing knives and swords requires a special kind of licence or permission from the government.......btw ....i am also an up and coming bladesmith and (possibly) ur future competitor......best of luck

Why would I help you if you are a competitor? Hahaha

Just joking, man

I am still in the process of figuring out all that shit... Once I've set up shop I will share my insights with you. You are even welcome to visit me in Mumbai.

Dear dhanoni l

Till the best I know our day to day Black Smiths comes under Cottage industries and hence have some privilege. they do not require a license for manufacturing a knife or any other type of edged item.
But of course as per the Govt. Rule they only sale the items in non sharpened condition, though they have the grinding wheel and other equipment with them always. ( :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: )
