Custom Made Knives

My name is Edward Louis Pretorius, I currently reside in Little Falls, Johannesburg. I started knife making three and a half years ago, as a side-line hobby, which ended up turning into a full-time business. I love making tactical fighters, bowies, and art knives. I ran and owned my own fish taxidermy company for 18 years, which gave me an upper hand in being creative, as well as I am a tool-maker by trade which lead to my interest in working with steel and ultimately the fine art of making knives. So, I decided to open my own company in producing knives.

This has become a big part of my life and a massive passion. My day to day inspiration comes from military and early pioneer days through history. I also take a lot of inspiration from famous knife makers-past and present-who have been in the trade longer than myself.
