South-African Knife Maker Of The Month

As Africa’s toughest knife and a proudly South African brand, Honey Badger is thrilled to shine a spotlight on some of the most esteemed and globally recognized local knife makers. Through our “South African Knife Maker of the Month” initiative, we aim to introduce our Honey Badger enthusiasts to the exceptional talent that South Africa has to offer, one member of the Knife Makers Guild of Southern Africa (KGSA) at a time.

Each KGSA member featured here is a testament to the remarkable skill and creativity found within our borders. Crafting extraordinary masterpieces with intricate designs, distinctive elements, and exclusive materials, these knife makers represent the pinnacle of craftsmanship.

Be sure to check back regularly as we unveil a new knife maker every month. We take immense pride in sharing the stories of these highly successful and globally acclaimed South African artisans.
