Services

We have years of knifemaking experience and can assist you to get the best solution for your requirements. Many a grown man has cried for spending lots of money on the wrong machine, investing in an own design that cannot do all the work, or making an amazing looking knife with unsuitable materials.

 

We will assist in any way we can, short of doing the grinding for you.

 

We offer knifemaking training for both fixed blade and folder knives where you get to work with our machines to see what they can really do.

 

We encourage prospective customers to grind a blade in our workshop before you decide on a beltgrinder.

 

Can you save a lot of money with your own design grinder??

Most of the cost of a beltsander is made up of the materials, wheels, electrics and coating. We have the utmost respect for the engineering abilities of some people, but do you want to make a machine, or do you want to make gorgeous knives?

 

Do you want to risk losing a lot of money on your own design or do you want to use a proven machine that can help you to repeatably achieve high quality grinds and enhance your knifemaking abilities?

 

Inferior quality parts like skateboard wheels, washing machine motors, wooden wheels and more, can never ever result in a high quality end product. Which brings us right back to the question, do you want to tinker with a machine, or do you want to make the very best knives that you can?

 

The very few cases we know of where somebody built a great machine at home, they spend months and months refining and changing- and every time that costs money.

 

In contrast a top of the range beltsander with all the attachments will cost you around R25000. At R2500 a hunting knife you only have to make 10 knives to repay the machine. 10 Knives should not take you more than 130 hours, at the most, to make. Working 8 ours a day, you should pay for your machine in less than 3 months if you work weekends only.
