Tactical & EDC

As a teenager I normally had a small knife in my pocket - a Wenger 1961 'Soldier' with silver alox scales. One of the original 'Swiss Army Knives'. The knife belonged to my father who had it since the late 60's. Slicing up apples, whittling sticks, opening bottles of coke or tinned food while 'camping' in the bush veldt around home - I thought there was nothing that this little knife couldn't do... except close on your fingers! Man, I loved that knife :-)

My EDC (Every Day Carry) knives are designed to be general use cutting tools that are lightweight, compact and tough enough for most tasks. The best knife for a job is the  one that you have with you!

Another knife that I spent a lot of time with while growing up was my 'Rambo' knife. It was a cheap supermarket buy (but was hugely expensive on my pocket-money budget). It was made of some unknown, crap steel, had a 5"painted black blade and saw-teeth on the spine (for cutting through barbed-wire fences of course!). But best of all was the hollow aluminium handle that housed the all-important 'survival' kit and the water-filled compass on the pommel. It even had a plastic faux-leather sheath with a sharpening stone in a clip pouch. I had many, many hours adventuring with this tool in the garden and surrounding bushveldt while humming the Rambo theme tune.

All of my Tactical and EDC knives come with a custom fitted kydex or leather sheath. If you have any specific requirements or customizations such as handle or blade materials, initials engraved on the blade/embossed on the sheath etc. - please get in touch.
