Discover the Unique Artistry of K’roo Knives: A Spotlight on Custom Creations

If you’re a knife enthusiast, you’re probably familiar with the name K’roo Blades. Based in the Great Karoo desert region of South Africa, this father-and-son team has carved a niche for themselves in the world of custom knife-making. The name “K’roo” is derived from the local pronunciation of “Karoo,” which sounds like “crew” in English. Known for their exceptional design, materials, and craftsmanship, K’roo Blades specializes in high-quality slip joint knives, dress knives, and other custom designs.

The K’roo Blades Story

Willem O’Kelly, the founder, started K’roo Blades as a hobby in 2005. He initially focused on hunting and rustic knives, reflecting his background as a professional hunter and his involvement in black powder shooting. However, his passion evolved, and he shifted his focus to slip joint and back lock folders, a field he has always been passionate about. His son, Liam, joined him in 2019 and quickly became a world-class knife maker. Together, they have created a brand known for unique aesthetics and meticulous attention to detail​.

Willem and Liam are committed to standing by their work and ensuring customer satisfaction, even in challenging circumstances​​.
