Who We Are
KZNKnifemakers.co.za was created by the members of the KZN Knifemakers Club as a way to showcase the very best knife-making talent across our province of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, help enthusiasts and collectors discover new and interesting knifemakers and to raise the profile of handmade custom knives to members of the public.
The website was created in 2017 and serves as the epicentre for knife enthusiasts, and knife collectors across KZN, South Africa, and the world.
There are few things as beautiful as a custom handmade knife and our artists create knives that are as unique as themselves to suit every budget and need, covering a wide range of different categories including, culinary, hunting, bushcraft, folders, tactical, utility knives etc.
What We Do
At KZNKnifeMakers our mission is not only to promote the knifemakers of our province but also to foster collaboration and learning amongst makers to further the craft to young and old alike. Many knifemakers are members of either, the KZN Knifemakers Club, Pietermaritzburg Knifemaking Club, Knifemakers Guild of Southern Africa and or South African Bladesmiths Association.
KZNKnifeMakers has long embraced the goal of breaking down barriers between custom knife enthusiasts, knife collectors and the creators who hand make these beautiful and functional pieces of craftsmanship.
By providing the knife makers with the opportunity to list themselves and their knives on the KZNKnifeMakers website, they can raise their online profile to new audiences, and interact with local and foreign-based collectors and enthusiasts at all stages of their knife making careers.
This allows the public to identify and engage with their favourite knife makers without having to wait for periodic events such as knife shows.
All pieces are individually handcrafted by the knifemakers using the best knife steels, specially selected indigenous hardwoods and a range of exotic materials.
All of the knife makers are based in KwaZulu-Natal and are based in Durban, Pietermaritzburg, Richards Bay, Hillcrest, Ballito, Mtunzini, Mandini, Port Shepstone, to name but a few locations.
Thank you for your support and patronage.
