My name is Niel van Heerden, I am from Klerksdorp in the North West province. My knife making journey began in 2019 when I first tried making a knife with a file and some basic hand tools. After making a few fixed blade knives, I completed a liner lock course during December 2019 under the guidance of Mr. Andre Erasmus. This experience sparked a passion for making folding knives and this is what I am currently focusing all my energy on. I am in the process of designing and testing a series of liner lock as well as frame lock knives for everyday carry. These knives will be available with stainless, high carbon and damascus steel blades and also with a variety of handle materials.
