Porter Custom Knives

Porter Custom Knives

This page is for people interested in the knives I'm making. I will post Work in progress photos and completed knives and other projects I'm busy with.

Operating as usual

[09/06/18]   Hi All,
As you may have noticed my page has been quiet for a while now. This is due to some unfortunate personal circumstances. I have had to relocate from George to Pretoria and in so doing my knife making equipment had to stay in storage in George. Therefore I have not and cannot take any orders, my sincere apologies for this.
I will be trying to set myself up here in Pretoria, temporarily, when circumstances allow.
Thank you so much for everyone who has liked my page, I really do appreciate it.
Darren Porter
