Custom Made Knives

André and his wife, Erika on a small farm outside Bela Bela, Limpopo, SA.

His interest for making knives started in the early eighties, when he met an man who taught him the basics of knife-making. He then attended a course presented by Owen Wood. Soon after he started creating beautiful working knives, hunting knives, folders, carving sets and steak knife & fork sets as well as true art pieces for the collector who is looking for that “something special”. He loves to work with natural materials, such as horns, bones from various animals and also warthog tusk and crocodile leather. He invented a lock on his folders, calling it the bolster lock which is quite unique and very popular.
