Creativity, Quality & Craftsmanship

Welcome ...


Wecome to our online home, we trust that you will enjoy the information and pictures shared on this site.


We strive to create a knife (or knives) for each one of our customers that meets their requirements, may it be for a shiny display knife or a hardworking tool that can take a lot of hammering. We do not try to mass produce a set range of knives, with the result that each one of our knives is unique.


We enjoy talking to our customers and friends, so please feel free to contact us anytime.

It is with great pleasure that we announce the Africa's Bowhunter Magazine hunting knives, available in damascus and carbon fibre or in stainless steel and dymondwood / G10. These knives are designed to be the ultimate bowhunter companion and are individually handcrafted by Andre Erasmus.



Huntex Eastern Cape 2016 was good for us, as the organisers bought one of our NightShade knives which they gave away as a 2nd prize in their lottery. The winning prize was a .300 WinMag caliber Tikka rifle. We also had the priviledge of meeting frontiersman Mr Robin Barkes and handing a knife over to him. Mr Barkes has written many articles for the popular Magnum magazine and it was indeed a big honour to handle the huge double barrelled elephant rifle he brought to show us. Sadly we forgot to ask him for a photo.

My first colour blued bowie was an instant hit. It was crafted from san mai with a damascus inner core clad with 2 layers of stainless steel made by Tinus Steenkamp.

I have been accepted as a member of the Cape Knifemakers Guild. This is a big milestone in my knifemaking path and I am honoured to be accepted by the members.
