When my father gave me my first pocket knife, I was so excited about the fact that I actually was having my own knife and most important of all, my father trusted me to be responsible enough to own one. I remembered it as it was still the other day! Through the years I collected various knives but always knew that one day I am going to make my own knives. I finished school and did my National Service, after Army I started a career in the south African Police Service. Today 27 years later I am still a devoted K9 Search and Rescue handler in SAPS and enjoy part time knife making very much. In 2016 I officially started to brand my knifes as 316Knives by Adriaan de Villiers. I got saved in 2003 and as a reborn Christian one of my favorite verses is John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have eternal life" and therefore branded my knifes "316Knives"
