Anton van der Westhuizen
I was very fortunate to begin working with several South African Knife Makers many years ago, I am continually impressed with the Quality of their knives and the value they offer. In my journey as a knife dealer several SA Makers have introduced me to other SA Makers and the list of quality knives that I sell from that country continues to grow.
The newest addition to my website is South African Knife Makers Guild member Anton van der Westhuizen.
Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a Dealer for Anton van der Westhuizen

This is Anton van der Westhuizen’s Gorgeous Boudicca Flipper. It features a Stealthy Smooth Black Cerakote Finish on all Surfaces and twin pockets of “Night Fire” Rag Micarta.
The elegant Blade was Hand Ground from Tough M390. Anton uses Caged Ceramic Bearings so just a bit of pressure on the flipper mechanism causes the blade to Leap into the Open and Locked Position! Incredible action that will bring a smile to your Face!
Anton Mirror Polished the Blade and then coated it with Tough Black Cerakote. He also gave this example some beautiful Custom Timascus Pivot Collars.
Very Secure, Early lock up! Note how Anton Textured the End of the Flipper Mechanism for a better grip.
Anton also gave this one an Extended Timascus Backspacer to match the Clip and Pivot Collars
Complete with a Custom Low Rider Timascus Clip.
An incredible Custom Flipper, complete with a Hand Written & Signed COA
