Visit this maker's website: Rob Brown Knives. "Born and raised in South Africa within casting distance of the Indian Ocean, I developed a great love for the outdoors. The bushveld, rivers and ocean, with all the game that abounds there, formed an integral part of my life. I became a member of the "Southern African Knifemaker's Guild" in October 1986 and by the end of 1988 took up knifemaking as a full-time occupation - the bug had truly bitten at that stage.To date I have been awarded 38 "Certificates of Excellence" for individual knives exhibited at the annual shows and "Best Overall Knifemaker" on 5 separate occasions.I work from a one man shop (with a good view of the ocean) building knives to order, one at a time. My aim is to produce a wide variety of investor class, quality fixed blade knives for the collector and discerning user, and as such continually strive for the highest degree of craftsmanship possible.
