Knife of the Month – June 2021

The North Coast Knife Club can boast a number of renowned knifemakers in their ranks.

To keep to our commitment of raising the profiles of our local talent, KZNknifemakers is running a competition within the club for a “Knife of the month” or KOTM for short. Every member has the opportunity to submit one or more of their works to their peers and the Kznknifemakers community each calendar month.

The winner will have their work featured as the WhatsApp group profile pic, the club’s Facebook group header image, and of course on the kznknifemakers’s facebook page and website for the month. All the monthly winners will be in the running for the Knife of the Year accolade and be featured in the forthcoming 2022 calendar.

We had a number of great submissions from the makers in June 2021 to choose from but there can only be one winner. It was a close race but Ricky Mayne’s recurve hunter took top honors.

Ricky is a relative newcomer to the knifemakers club but has grown immensely. Ricky showed off this recurve hunter with a unique stacked wild olive handle, brass fittings, and mirror polished blade.

Congratulations to Ricky (Howick, KZN).
