Hand crafted perfection

We pride ourselves on making bladed tools and weapons from the highest quality materials and craftsmanship.

For stock removal knives we mainly use Bohler N690 and M390, and Sandvic 12C27 and 14C28N. These are all high grade stainless steels developed specifically for cutting tools.

For forged blades we usually use SAE5160 or K460 if available. These steels produce excellent blades that are more traditional and need a little more care, but has so much character.

Handle materials vary from synthetic materials like Micarta, Diamond wood, Corian and Kirinite.

We use a variety of  natural stabilised woods from African hard woods like Lead wood, Wild Olive, Tambotie and Rooibos, to imported Burls like, BuckEye burl, Wild pear, Red wood burl to name only a few. We also use a variety of horn, bone, tusk and ivory on our blades.

Sheaths are handmade, by ourselves, from various types of leather and also from Kaydex or ABS for tactical and EDC knives. The sheaths are a very important part of our product because even the best knife becomes ineffective if it’s not carried in a proper well designed sheath.
