I have been trying to get further info on the Bauchop history and there is now a book out that I may add to my collection of reading matter. Otherwise the information tends towards vague. Rob is a member of Knife Guild of South Africa (www.kgsa.co.za) and is listed on their membership role.
The current line of knives are by Rob Bauchop. He tends towards using D2. I have been very interested in his father's work, Peter Bauchop, used by two elite forces of Southern African countries.
