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.  

Willem says, “My goal in knife-making is to improve my skills on every knife I make.  I endeavor to learn as much as I can from other knife–makers that have the same interests as I have.”

~ Direct from the Maker ~

Each time I receive a knife from Willem Steenkamp I am repeatedly impressed with his Precision Fit & Finish and the unique Combination of materials he uses.  This is a Custom Native Slip Joint showcases the Talent of this fine Custom Maker. 

The Thunderstorm Kevlar handle scales on this Steenkamp Native Slip Joint are Custom Contoured and Willem has added a contrasting Satin Finished Titanium Shield Inlay and Pivot.  Extremely smooth action with Excellent Spring tension.  Note: the Brass Strands woven into the tough Kevlar material catch the light when rotated. 

Extremely Solid build, tough enough for any EDC chore, yet elegant enough for Sunday carry as well. The Hand Ground, M390 Blade has superb “Walk and Talk” and the Half Stop is very secure. The Blade has a Labor Intensive Hand Rubbed – High Satin Finish and a Custom Forward Swedge. Extremely smooth action with just the right amount of tension on the Spring. 

This knife is smooth and tough at the same time. Precision Fit handle scales against the Titanium Frame and the Stainless Backspring. A Custom Slip joint that bridges the gap between Traditional and Modern!

An Extremely Affordable, Hand Built Precision Pocket Knife that would find a place of honor in any collection.

Complete with a Branded Padded Zipper Storage Pouch, felt slip pouch and COA.  

Willem’s knives are some of the best values in Custom Folders that I offer ~ High Quality and completely Hand Made!
