Custom Made Knives
Jan Wahl is a member of the Knife Makers Guild of Southern Africa. You can find his personal page on the Guild website here. If you want to learn knifemaking from Jan personally, then you can attend one of his Basic Fixed Blade Hunter courses. Jan has a background in taxidermy (the art of preparing, stuffing, and mounting the skins of animals with lifelike effect) where he saw a colleague make a quick knife out of an old bandsaw blade. This got him interested in knifemaking, and the rest is history! He also won many awards for his knives. Have a look at his awards here. He has been a full-time knifemaker since 2009. And became a member of the Guild in 2012.
