Knife Maker Bio
My name is Niel van Heerden and I am from Klerksdorp in the North West province.
My knife making journey began in 2019 when I first tried making a knife with a file and some basic hand tools. After making a few fixed blade knives, I completed a liner lock course during December 2019 under the guidance of Mr. Andre Erasmus.
This experience sparked a passion for making folding knives and this is what I am currently focusing all my energy on. I am in the process of designing and testing a series of liner lock as well as frame lock knives for everyday carry. These knives will be available with stainless, high carbon and Damascus steel blades and with a variety of handle materials.
Thank you for taking an interest in my knives and feel free to contact me to discuss that special knife that you have always wanted.
