ARNO BERNARD Sr.
Direct from the Maker at the AG Russell Knife Event 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 a one off / Custom model from Arno Sr. ~ a small belt knife and small game skinner called the Honey Badger. This knife has beautiful Stabilized Giraffe Bone handles that have a deep caramel color and other natural Blues and Greens in small patches.
This is an excellent Every Day Carry (EDC) knife that will ride comfortably on your belt and look great to boot. A Full Tang knife with a dual blade finish ~ the Flats on the blade are Mirror Polished while the Hollow Grind has a Hand Sanded Satin finish. Very comfortable handle with secure forefinger cutout area that acts as an integral guard.
This knife comes with a LEFT Hand exotic Cape Buffalo Leather belt sheath.
I hand pick knives from Arno and his Son at every show I see them. You can be assured of great designs with unique handle materials.
