    I only carry Okapi knives, I have gotten my hands on the hacksaw clasp knife as well, works wonders in opening the sternum when gutting an antelope 71092608_506869283218497_1662128055511941120_n.jpg

    Didn't realize that Okapi made a saw now. Thanks for posting.

    CBH,

    The knife have found a new home the U.S. for quite some time now. If I ever come across one again, I'll keep you in mind.

    Regards,
    Boela.

    Thanks to @Boela

    I’m coming to Africa soon, I’ve been waiting my whole life. I am travelling light using only a carry on so I don’t think I will be able to carry a knife. If I find something interesting I will have to post it home. Just a gun enthusiast with an interest in knives too.

    Something taken from a poacher is a good thing and would have been an interesting artefact to leave my son one day.

    Let your outfitter know you want an Okapi knife. He can coordinate one for you. Probably for a few bucks from one of his employees. If you want other items like swords, spears, axes, gin traps, wood carvings, he can probably arrange them for you at a cheap price. Wrap them all up, put them in a box and use that as a checked piece of luggage.

    Wheels, thanks for the advice. I’ve Leroy skied my PH a lot of questions. Probably the hardest he has worked for. Cull hunt client before the hunt.
    Seriously it’s a new to me. First o/seas travel and first paying Hunt.
    We are thinking about taking over a small checked luggage bag for some items of low value and importance going one way. Maybe some clothes, Australian Cadbury Chocolate and a bottle of Bundaberg Rum. Thongs for our feet (cheap Flip flops) we are doing January and they have a pool.
