The Warthog Knife was designed by Anton Du Plessis of Ex Necessitas Training. 

Anton is a survival and wilderness instructor and spent the last 15 years exploring the unforgiving South African wilderness. He used this experience to develop survival and bushcraft courses, which he now teaches in South Africa.

The Warthog was initially developed for hunters and anti-poaching units, but the knife lends itself exceptionally well to survival tasks. The knife has a full tang, hand-ground blade and is undeniably solid.

This survival knife comes with low-weight black linen micarta handle scales which are expertly shaped to fit the contours of your hand enabling hours of comfortable use.

The knife is provided with a simple black cordura sheath.

The Warthog is made by Samuel Staniforth Ltd, knife makers with a pedigree going back further than 148 years (est. 1864).
