De Villiers, Andre (ADV Tactical)

André started making knives while at school in South Africa. A need for a hunting knife snowballed into a career after his father wanted one too. Now he makes all kinds of knives, ranging from folders to fixed blades, to swords. His specialty, however, is artistic folding knives. He has been a full time maker since 1990.
