Profile:
Born in Bethlehem, Freestate, raised and schooled in Roodepoort, Gauteng.
At a young age I visited the Durban Easter Knife Show and told my family that one day I wanted to make knives. In 2009 I started off with hand tools only and made a few knives using a file. In 2010 I slowly started to build my own machines and my workshop expanded, and is still expanding. I soon realised that knife makers are a close "family" that share knowledge and help one another. I befriended many knife makers and visited them often asking streams of questions and "stole" with my eyes. I soon got a liking in making liner lock folding knives. But I try to make at least one fixed blade knife a year. In April 2016 I submitted my five knives for evaluation and were accepted into the SA Knife Makers Guild. I make knives using the stock removal method, and have a personal preference for ATS34, RWL34, 440C and Elmax stainless steel as blade material. I prefer using natural materials for handles, although some of my knives are dressed in synthetic material.
Currently I am making knives on a part time basis only, but plan to do it full time once retired from work. I would like to take this opportunity to thank my wonderful wive and daughters for "allowing" me to spend endless hours in my "happy place" aka workshop.
