ARNO BERNARD Jr.
Direct from the Maker at BLADE 2011
Arno and his Son, Arno Jr have been making knives in their Native land of South Africa for over decade and have steadily gained popularity in the U.S. for their unqiue designs, great craftsmanship and very affordable pricing.
This is wonderful belt knife and small game skinner called the Meerkat. This knife has beautiful Stabilized Maple Burl handles that have deep color and are well matched and well contoured.
This is an excellent Every Day Carry (EDC) knife that will ride comfortably on your belt and look great to boot. A gently Tapered Tang and dual blade finish.add to the appeal of this knife ~ the Flats on the blade are Mirror Polished while the Hollow Grind is Satin. Very comfortable handle with secure forefinger cutout area that acts as an integral guard.
This knife comes with an exotic Cape Buffalo Leather pouch sheath built for Right Hand belt carry.
I hand picked many knives from Arno and his Son at the BLADE show this year and they are all great designs with unique handle materials.
