Honey Badger isn’t a name you hear often, but there’s a reason we chose it as the name for our knife and knife accessory ranges. Honey Badgers are known for their strength, fearlessness and most notably, their toughness. They are Africa’s toughest animal, so it made sense that Africa’s toughest knife should carry the same name.

Was created in 2014 by our CEO and Head Knife Designer, Marc Ager who saw a need in South Africa for an affordable range of high-quality, practical and durable EDC knives. Marc has over 30 years’ experience in the hunting and outdoor market, having originally started Ramrod in 1987.

Ramrod was renamed as Lite Optec and is still to this day, one of Southern Africa’s leading and most reputable importers and distributors of high-quality products and brands to the hunting and outdoor market.

With his lifelong passion for knives, wealth of experience and stellar reputation in the industry, Marc spent 18 months researching and fine-tuning his designs, and these became the first 3 models of the Honey Badger range.

The Claw, Hook and Flipper launched at the April 2016 HuntEx Expo in Johannesburg, South Africa, and 6 years later, the success of the original 3 models has resulted in an expanded number of models and range extensions, including bespoke replacement machined G10 handle scales.

Marc’s unwavering dedication to good knives can be clearly seen in Honey Badger – a range of 7 different blade styles, all superbly designed to be tough, hard-wearing, and totally competent in varied long-term use. Each knife style is offered in 3 different sizes and all are light-weight.

They feature either high-quality 8Cr13MoV stainless steel or D2 blades that have excellent cutting ability and edge retention, whilst being easy to resharpen when needed. All our knives have an incredibly smooth, almost frictionless opening and closing action, that is facilitated by two opposing roller bearings that contain a total of 18 ball bearings. Africa’s toughest knives are also Africa’s smoothest and using them is an absolute pleasure.

The handle slabs of each knife are made from a Fibre Reinforced Nylon (FRN) and are available in 6 colours – there’s a choice to suit every preference. The FRN carries a ridged honey-comb pattern that provides an excellent multi-directional grip, and whilst light in weight and slim in width, they are extremely tough, slip-resistant when wet and dry, and they fit ergonomically in your hand. In addition, the new 2022 introduction of Accessory G10 handles in 8 colours gives you the opportunity to further upgrade to a more exotic, customizable option if you prefer.

Honey Badger is the perfect blend of quality, functionality, fun and most importantly, our range is affordable. Customer service, innovation and consistent, competitive prices are at the heart of our business, and our friendly and dedicated customer service team are trained and ready to answer any and all questions that you may have.
