I have designs to suit most purposes guys from little ones that would open a snuff can or cap out a nice head, with models suited to various EDC or the skinning, boning and breaking down of anything you might be hunting and through Harry Wolhunters Lion Knife to Joe's JT Ranger Model for a multiplicity of possibilities. Check out the design page on my website to see all that are available or I can design one to suit your own particular needs.

A few weeks ago I entered into a collaboration with our resident Kiwi Knifemaker to create an "African" knife which would incorporate a specific set of priorities. I had a specific length and requirements which drove the blade design. Using his vast experience, Gary incorporated those thoughts into a minimalist design, that is in the hand perfect. Everything about a knife that may be used for something other than cutting rope or potatoes is captured in its balance and heft. I am confident that this one could not be improved upon. He also created a minimalist sheath which carries the knife in what I consider the perfect location - weak-side/butt forward. There it is always available and never prodding you in the back or butt when in a vehicle.

Simply great work my friend. It will be with me every day in South Africa in June and hopefully for many years to come.

Nice blade Von, specially like the deep sheath.

Thanks there are quite a few of that pattern out there doing it. Name is Garry but Gruff will do as well.

Spoken like a true Southerner Garry. Hope you weren't upset with the recent Crusaders-Highlanders pre-season game where the red & blacks sneaked in at the last minute. It should be a good season. Cheers Brian

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
