RAPTOR custom made Knives - For Hunting & Fishing

Back to GANADOR HOME PAGE - Fly Tackle and Fly fishing South Africa info site

Ganador Trading is proud to be associated with Jasper Stupart, a fine knive craftsman with years of experience as a hunter and fisherman, with conservation as top priority. He is based in Cape Town, South Africa. 

These fine knives are all intended for use in the field – designed by a hunter/fisherman to become a best friend after years of use.

 The steel used is imported (440C stainless) from the USA, and the blanks are laser cut to ensure a very clean sharp edge on the products.

Handle materials include African Hardwoods (e.g. Wild Olive, African Rosewood, Ebony, Panga Panga, old Oak, Rhodesian Teak, etc,) as well as impregnated bone handle slabs.  The wood is never varnished, it is hand waxed and polished, giving the look and feel of a fine gun stock, which will improve with years of tender care.

Lately he has standardized on two basic designs, being in his opinion of perfect balance and suitable for a very wide range of outdoor usage...the FALCON and the PEREGRINE Bird Skinner. Please see below for details. Knives are supplied with a heavy duty leather sheath. Please see prices below.

He talks with great excitement about experimenting with Damascus Steel – an exersize he is about to embark on. Watch this space!

Please e-mail him at jasperstupart@gmail.com for further details and special deals. Knives can also be custom made to your specifications.
