Profile:I always told my wife I want to make knives and as a birthday present she booked me on a fixed blade course at Herbst Knife making Academy late in 2010. The bug has bitten and I have been making knives ever since.
I applied for membership to the Knifemakers Guild of Southern Africa in October 2015 and was honored to be accepted as a member.
Although I started off making fixed blade knives, I again attended a folding knife course at Herbst Knife making Academy as soon as I felt confident enough.
I mainly make liner lock folding knives now and only use Damasteel and RWL34 stainless steel for the blades.
