Kappetijn Knives is a purveyor of fine handmade knives & swords, in damascus and stainless steel. Their designs appeal to a wide customer base.
These designs include folding and fixed blade hunting knives, as well as classical sword designs.
Kappetijns products are procured by collectors, hunters, outdoorsmen and given away as high-end corporate gifts. They also deal in tactical knives made from their damascus steel. Their products are made to last for a lifetime of use and enjoyment.
Kappetijns knives & swords are handcrafted by master craftsmen to exacting standards. No products are exactly the same. Because their products are handcrafted, production volume is limited providing a high-level of quality and exclusivity.
Kappetijn's products are made from various steels including 420HC stainless steel, D2 toold steel, and damascus steel (combination of 1075 high carbon steel and 4340 high nickel steel). Damascus steel patterns available include raindrop, twist, ladder, random & reverse patterns, turkish twist and butterfly pattern damascus available to knife makers.
Please check product details to see what type of steel a given Kappetijn knife is made from.
All blades are heat treated to exacting requirements reaching a hardness of 57-59 HRC to ensure long lasting cutting edges without compromising blade toughness.
Their handle materials include water buffalo horn, olive wood, camel bone, Turkish walnut and stag horn. This provides for an endless variety of handle finishes and textures; further enhancing the uniqueness and exclusivity of each knife they sell.
All Kappetijn Knives are supplied with custom made leather pouches and sheaths.
Over and above the products available on this site, Kappetijn also manufactures to order. Larger orders of custom designed knives will be entertained. They will laser engrave knives to requirement at marginal additional cost. Please e-mail us with large order requests.
