Features & Specs:

 During weekdays he is a Professional Accountant but after work and over weekends he is a Part time knife maker. JD Ellis grew up in Springbok, Namaqualand (flower country in winter time) where he still lives today. As a child he used to spend most of my school holidays on my grandparent’s farm in South West Africa, now Namibia. During these holidays his love for hunting and the outdoors grew and with it his love for knives.

 Way back on a visit to the Gemsbok National Park he received a copy of the official nature conservations magazine, the Custos. This specific magazine featured an article of the knives of Ted Whitfield, one of the first knife makers in SA. Needles to say, he was hooked and in 1976, made my first knife. His first knives were from old files and leaf springs. Later on he started to do some stock removal with decent steels. Although he made basically any kind of knife, he loves slip joints the most.
