About Andrew Bell

From a young age, I was obsessed with knives and sharp tools. For my 18th birthday present my parents sent me on a knife-making course with Andrè Thorburn, and later we were able to acquire a variety of knife-making machinery.

Due to circumstances, I did not really use these machines until 2015. Since then I have managed to make a few handmade knives and had the opportunity to sell some of these after exhibiting at the Durban Easter Knife Show of 2016.

In 2018 I started making liner lock folding knives with the assistance of Lourens Prinsloo and can now offer these with titanium liners, and various blade steels in a compact size.

I currently live in Hilton, KwaZulu-Natal, where I spend some of my free time making my knives. I am currently an active member of the North Coast Knife Makers Club.

I am currently working on a design of an everyday Carry (EDC) with a member of a Kaga Magra martial arts studio.

I do not generally take orders, but sell what I have currently made or have left in my stock draw.
