Exclusive: 4 Makers version of the "Lion Killer"

In 1903, a man named Harry Wolhuter was traveling on a familiar path between watering holes in South Africa. Harry was on horseback with a dog following when he was attached by 2 hungry lions! The story is a pulse pounding tale of the will to survive, while keeping your wits about you in the most dire situation imaginable…to avoid being eaten alive! As the name of the knife may give away, Harry survived the encounter by using his knife to fight back on the lion posing the immediate risk to his life… but the story of what happened from the moment of attack to the end is astonishing. We covered it in our latest YouTube video. Be sure to watch that.

After Dirk Loots, himself a South African, told the story to the other members of Pop’s Knife Supply… they wanted to make their own versions of the famous knife from the story. The result is an amazing display of how 4 makers can take the same design, but when their individual style is applied, it becomes uniquely their own. Since it was a group project, we thought we would offer it up as a collection first… in hopes that a collector would want to keep the knives together as a set. It’s a sure bet they’ll have a really cool story to tell about the knives when showing them to friends… in addition to having knives made by 4 renowned knife makers in their collection!

How Fiddleback Friday Works

The rules are quite simple. Once the knives post, the first person to complete the checkout process gets the knife. There are no limits to how many you can buy. However, it may take you longer to put 3 knives in your cart than it takes 3 other people to checkout with only 1 knife. Unsold knives will stay here until Thursday of the following week. They will still be on the site listed with other Available Knives after that.

Payments & Shipping

Our checkout accepts both PayPal or credit cards. In the USA, we are currently offering the options of USPS Priority Mail, USPS Priority Mail Express, or UPS options. International orders are currently UPS only. Rate depends on country and are calculated at checkout. Taxes and Customs Fees are subject to your countries laws and will be collected from you upon delivery, if required. We ship next business day after purchase. We ship Monday-Friday unless there's a national holiday or something unforeseen occurs.
