    Default Custom Butcher / Camp knife

    Hi all,

    Looking for urgent help.

    It is my bday this week and the way we do presents is that you choose and your spouse pays which is cool but I completely forgot to source my own present. I really, really want a custom braai or butchers(cleaver) blade

    Looking for a custom blade exactly like this:

    https://shop.grootcecil.com/collections/braai-blades

    Although I would really like one of his knives, I do not have a lead time of 4-6 weeks.

    Does anyone know where I can walk in a buy a custom knife like these in or around Stellenbosch?

    I will settle for something like Victorinox but absolute first prize would be from a SA knife maker.

    TIA!!

    I will buy 2nd hand if the quality is spot on and yours is just lying in a drawer :-)

    Speak to Righard from Righ Knives, he is in Nelspruit.

    I know for Xmas he makes batches of the more popular blades like the cleavers. Perhaps worth checking in with him to if he has anything that he can ship immediately. Ive got about 4 weeks left before my custom cleaver arrives.

    Why not order the right knife now and on your bday, you get a empty box with a "credit note" in it? Then you have 2 happy days.

    Check out Lowry Bladeworks.

    They sell some of their knives at Frankie Fenner butcheries around Cape Town.

    I have been lusting after one of their Kelly Cleavers for some time now.
