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?"
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.
