It was an honor and privilege to have met this man and his wife today. Andre Shoeman is a custom knife maker in South Africa and they made a special trip to my hotel to show me there wares. I purchased all the items shown, well he threw in a couple for free, and thirty minutes after they left I had regrets for not buying more. I sent them a text, picked out two more knives, and they will get them shipped to me in Namibia this week. His knives were incredible , very well made, and all felt so natural in my hand. All three pictured have sable bone handles with 440 steel blades.
