My Name is Rucus Coetzee,
I was born in 1991, started making knives in 2010 under Master Smiths Kevin and Heather Harvey. I worked under them full time for 3 years, in that time gaining my guild membership.
I am full time into Knifemaking and I specialize in both the forged blade and the stainless blade. My work varies from a simple utility knife to a historical dagger. I make swords from time to to time and enjoy making Kitchen knives as well.
I like to use natural materials and I love to use bronze, brass and copper for fittings. I also make my own Damascus from time to time.
