Lourens Prinsloo African Blackwood Folder

Lourens Prinsloo African Blackwood Folder

LP017


Features & Specs:

Lourens made his first knife in 1996, shortly after attending a knifemaking course with Owen Wood.

In 2015, JD van Deventer brought us a folder from Lourens Prinsloo. He said that he had a table next to Lourens at the KGSA Guild Show and that we should check out his knives because they were excellent. What a compliment! Some people look at the other makers as their competition, but one of the things we love most about the South African makers is their genuine appreciation for the artistic creations from their fellow countrymen.

After a quick inspection, we saw with our own eyes the quality of work that Lourens put out. So when we went to the 2016 DEKS show, his table was one of the first we went to see. He was a judge in the Best of Show competition, which was just another nod of respect from his peers.

Though limited in the number of knives we receive from him, we are pleased to represent Lourens in the United States.
