ABOUT THE MAKER
Schoeman, Corrie
I started making knives about 30 years ago while at University. My first knife was a big Bowie made from a car spring and I obtained a piece of stag from the local zoo for the handle. I still have and treasure that first knife. In my younger days I was very involved in martial arts yet could not buy Japanese weapons to train with, so I made my own, a short sword called a "sai". My fellow students were enthralled and I began taking orders to make more. Although having earned two university degrees, I continued to make knives part-time, but it became such a passion that I left my profession and am now a full-time knifemaking artist. I have been a member of the South African Knifemakers Guild since 1985 and one of the three members of the prospective member evaluation committee. Today I only make folders and automatics, using the best exotic materials such as mammoth ivory, pearl, damascus and damasteel. All my folders have fileworked liners and backstraps, each folder has a jewel inlaid somewhere on the knife as well as in the thumbstud. My logo is "Folding Art", and that is what my knives are: pieces of folding art."
