On this page I show the various types of knives that I built. Each one of these can be built with different handles consisting of hard woods, animal bone or ivory from hippopotamus-teeth or warthog.

Being a hunter myself I designed the above while sitting in a hide with my bow waiting for the prey.
Built from Tambotie hardwood and 12c27 stainless steel (hardened to +- 58 Rockwell) it is light, washable and can be dismantled. The Lion in the front is laser-cut.
The pouch is handmade from genuine leather.



The slightly larger hunter make provision for a better grip.
I also used 12c27 stainless for the blade and 303 stainless for the bolster.
The blade is filed with grape vine pattern and the bolster is engraved .
Cocobocola-wood is used for the handle.

Although a section was devoted to folding knives , this page would be incomplete not to include a folder. This blade and bolster with Demascus from Hans Bosch is coloured to match the handle from Buffalo horn.

                                         BIRD-AND-TROUT
This slick Bird-and-Trout knife is mainly used for the  skin of fish where delicate cutting is required.
I used 12c27 steel for the blade and 303 stainless for the bolster.
The Desert wood is complimented with a small piece of Warthhog.

This compact hunter is mainly used in the veld and is easy to carry with a leather pouch.
I used 12c27 steel for the blade and 303 stainless for the bolster.
Red ivory,Buffallo horn and Warthog are used in the handle.The 'Big 5' is lasercut into the 12c27 blade with Giraffe-bone (coloured) in the handle.

Sometimes a knife is built from the heart with no specific usage for it. The 12c27 is complimented with red ivory and warthog.
