Custom Made Knifes

Born in South African 1967, I was raised on hunting, fishing, braai's and rugby.  I married my soul mate in 1991 and together we have 2 amazing kids.  Tasmin and Leon.  I am the owner of HYMAX a telecoms company operating in the Eastern Cape.

My passion for knife making started in the late 90’s in a town called Queenstown, where I was working for my employer at the time.  A chance meeting with a local knife maker led me to his workshop and knife foundry. I was bitten!

Over the next 2 months I spent every spare minute I had working alongside him on my very first knife until it was finished.

30 years on, I am the chairman of Border Knife Making, a Cape Knife maker Guild Member, and my passion for knife making is stronger than ever.
