Skate Shank is a bespoke craft and design studio located in Sydney, producing quality knives, or shanks, for the kitchen, filleting, camping, hunting and cheese carving. Being a keen outdoorsman, fisherman, and avid skater, Rowland Perry, saw the opening to combine such activities with a small business scheme in order to resolve the qualm of having many bygone skateboards lying around his studio in multiple pieces. To the rest of the world, a skateboard may just be a well-crafted piece of wood on wheels; but to Rowland, it is the building block of creation that has seen retired old boards travel far beyond city streets and park bowls.
