Skull Knives is based just north of Pretoria. Reino is a mostly self-taught knife maker that started knife making as a hobby 3 1/2
years ago. He decided to start making knives when his spouse said he may not buy any more.
Doing stock removal on various types of steel, with various natural and synthetic handle material and styles and have tried his hand at almost anything from fixed blades, folders, biltong slicers and most recently an arming sword.
Although Reino is currently doing this part-time he devotes hours of work on stock removal, hardening, fitting handles, bolsters, pins etc. in each knife he produces. Each unique piece is done with care and attention to detail. For this knife maker, the aesthetics are as important as the functionality, and he prides himself in the cutting edges he obtains.
