The 'Pondoro' Hunter

The 'Pondoro' Hunter

The 'Pondoro' is the latest hunting knife design from BALETA Handmade. Named after the esteemed big game hunter John 'Pondoro' Taylor and inspired by the big tuskers of his day. A rounded handle, lanyard tube, generous finger guard and a tapered tang combines practicality with the aesthetic.


The 'Pondoro' is available to order in a full or hidden tang versions. Blade steel, finger guard & pin,  and handle material are all of the customer choice. As a premium product, I try and use the best steels and most exotic handle materials on the 'Pondoro'. Jimping or filework can also be done on the spine as a custom order.


After a hard day's work in the field, this knife will make light work of breaking down your quarry. Enough blade and robust enough for some of the largest thick-skinned game like Cape Buffalo as well as general duties around the campsite. This knife will serve you well in hunting trips for the rest your lifetime.


Prices for the 'Pondoro' are from 660 Euro for the hidden tang and 750 Euro for the full tang version. Please enquire for your custom order.
