Meet the Magpie

These birds are Aussie icons. You hear them every morning. They're smart and can adapt. Our knife is like them - adaptable and tough. Magpies like shiny things, so we added steel. It's about finding beauty in common things. Why Magpie? We see them every day, everywhere. From July to November, they build nests. They defend their territory fiercely. Sometimes, they swoop. That's the Magpie.

Introducing Our Aviary Collection

We are excited to introduce our Aviary Collection, a reflection of our dedication to blending functionality with inspiration drawn from the natural world. It's a celebration of Australia's vibrant birdlife and the diverse landscapes they inhabit.

Each blade in this group is a tribute to the elegance and strength of these remarkable creatures. Our goal? To design tools that serve a practical function but also evoke a connection to the beauty of nature every time they are used.


The Magpie—the cornerstone of our Aviary Collection is renowned for its intelligence and adaptability. It's fitting that our flagship knife pays homage to this iconic bird, symbolising strength, versatility, and community.

The Magpie Everyday Carry Pocket Knife Features

What makes this knife a must-have for every lifestyle?

Robust Construction for Any Situation

The Magpie knife boasts a handle crafted from dark ebony timber and white pearl resin, radiating warmth and durability. Our selection of materials isn't random; after years of experimentation, we've discovered that this blend provides both a tactile sensation and lasting quality.


The knife's liner measures 1.8mm (0.09") thick, with a precision-milled section of 0.9mm. This rigorous design provides the necessary spring movement to securely lock the blade in position, a crucial feature required for ownership in most countries. Unlocking the blade is a simple yet secure process - just push the spring steel to the side to release.

Precision Blade for Every Cutting Need

The blade of the Magpie is honed to a sharp edge, and it effortlessly tackles various cutting tasks with ease. When you're cutting through rope, prepping food, or tackling DIY projects, the Magpie knife is up to the task.

Designed with user comfort in mind, the Magpie features an ergonomic handle that enhances grip and control. The handle's design fits snugly in the palm and reduces fatigue during prolonged use. It's a knife that feels like an extension of your hand, making every task a breeze.
