A cut above

During a recent knife-makers huddle in George, local artisans showed off their steely art. Pictured below are, from the top, show organiser Sarel Jacobsz with part of his collection; Plett craftsman David ‘Cold Front’ Atkinson with one of his sharp products; a Roman-designed peasant knife; and a Damascus steel knife with ivory handle, which is true cutler art.
