The Bladesmith

I have been making knives since 2004 when I did my first knife making course with Roelf Swanepoel in Nelspruit.

Ever since I have been hooked. In the 14 years of making knives I studied with the following teachers:

2004 – date:Roelf Swanepoel – Fixed Blade course

Andre Thorburn – Folders course

Andre Thorburn – Fixed Blade course

Herbst Knife Making Academy – Fixed Blade course

Neels van den Berg – Forging course

Hilton Rutherford – Forging course

Kevin Harvey (Master Bladesmith) – 2 Week ABS Forging course

Kevin Harvey (Master Bladesmith) – 1 Week Handles and Sheaths course

It has been an absolute pleasure learning from these guys and I consider myself an eternal student that is constantly seeking to better my craft. Now that I am teaching I like to install the best of what I have learned from my teachers into my students.
