A One-Off Custom Knife From An Important Australian Knife Maker


An Aussie icon, Alistair Bastian (Bastian Knives) is perhaps the best known/ most recognised Australian knife maker internationally. From his workshop in Mount Gambier, South Australia, his art work has reached across the globe and has been cherished by prominent collectors worldwide. Alistair's knives are 100% handmade, meaning he does not use any CNC, waterjet, wire EDM or other automated machinery. Everything is done completely by hand which adds significant value to his work, considering how very few makers in the world still do everything by hand.


Since 2002, Alistair has forged his own carbon steel & Damascus blades as well as mosaic Damascus with the help of Shawn McIntyre. From 2004 onwards, he has been forging his own Mokume utilising iron & copper which is unique in pattern and features exquisite colours rarely seen before. Ali's work is top notch, his designs are unique and distinctive and his knives are highly sought after and collectible. His creations are a cross between art knife and tactical folder. 


This offering is a superb one-off, full-dress comission piece made by Alistair in 2021. The knife was name "Boutet" by Alistair to honour the great French gunsmith Nicholas Noël Boutet. The blade is made of Damasteel in a high polished & acid etched finish. The bolsters are made of elegant Bastanium material which is a titanium damascus forged by Alistair homself, complimented by gold flake carbon fiber scales. The fully customised pivot screw and collar are masterfully hand filled and polished. The knife also features a beautifully hand carved two-part stainless steel backspacer. Inside of the backspacer is inscribed "Prototype Bastian N 255"


This magnficient, truely handmade custom knife is indeed an investment piece and a must have for any Aussie knife collector. 


Handle scales are incorrectly marked as mammoth Ivory in the original certificate by Alistair Bastian. Gold Flake carbon fiber is correct.
