Custom Made Knives

Maker Biography: My name is Stephan Fourie and I am a 24 year old self-taught Blade smith. As a two and half year old boy I had Meningitis. Because of the damage, I never could attend a normal school and finished my School Career at a Special School in Rustenburg. I was fortunate to be employed directly after School. This however did not work out. I started working in my Dad’s Woodworking Factory where we manufactured Kitchens, Furniture, Bars etc. in Solid Wood.
I have always had a passion for knives and have been collecting knives for a long time. Then Forge in Fire happened on TV and I was instantly hooked. With the help of my Dad we build our 1st Forge a few years ago. After forging my 1st knife, I was totally hooked. With the help of various Blade smiths and Knife makers, I have educated myself in the art of forging knives. During August 2018, I attended a Damascus Coarse with Frik Kruger, producing my first Damascus billet and finally my first Damascus hunting knife. Each Knife and Axe are unique as it is hand forged from 5160 Steel. I also stared doing Stock Removal knives from N690 steel.

Over the past 2 years, I exhibited my knives at the Boabab. Brooklyn Mall and Rustenburg Knife Shows.
