Greg Egerton, of Mad Butcher Dunedin, hones his skills for the 2018 World Butchers’ Challenge. When he sharpens his knives for next year’s World Butchers’ Challenge, the Dunedin man and his five team-mates will compete in a genuine world cup, with 12 countries vying for the title. The 2018 challenge is being held in Belfast and the likes of Ireland, Bulgaria, South Africa and the United States will be taking part for the first time. ‘‘I’ll be like a kid in a candy store: that’s one of the reasons I wanted to take part again,’’ Mr Egerton said. Other team members are Mr Egerton, Hannah Miller Childs (Auckland), Jeremy Garth (Christchurch), Zak Grammer (Auckland) and Hohepa Smith (Gold Coast).
