Andre de Villiers is a South African designer, maker, who has an almost obsessive sense of quality. Nothing leaves his workshop until absolutely perfect.


His Impi Ebony is a beautifully crafted hefty little folder which is acceptable to carry in the UK at the owner's discretion, due to the non-locking blade under three inches long.


The blade is N690 stainless steel with a wide, flat ground profile ideally suited to so many tasks or just for looking at! The handle is made using a combination of stainless steel and bone with a shield on one side for engraving if desired. There is also a lanyard loop at the end of the tang to attach a lanyard of your choice.

    Excellent, but expensive

    Posted by James on 8th Aug 2018

    This knife is overpriced, and the flimsy nylon pouch is not adequate for a heavy knife like this. However, it's important to stress that neither of these negatives is the fault of Heinnie Haynes. The standard of customer service I received from them was outstanding!
    Back to the knife... I love it! It is extremely well made and came razor sharp. I couldn't find any fault with the assembly, although some of the machined corners are a little "crisp" and might have benefited from a bit of sanding off. The blades snaps open reassuringly but personally I would have preferred a bit more resistance on closing the blade, although this is not a major issue. There are better value knives available, but ultimately this is a very distinctive design that is also very practical and well-made, so I am more than happy with my purchase :-)
