ARNO BERNARD Sr.
Direct from the Maker at BLADE 2011
Arno has been making knives in his Native land of South Africa for over decade and has steadily gained popularity in the U.S. for his unqiue designs, great craftsmanship and his very affordable pricing.
This is Arno’s all purpose Vulture model in a Clip Point blade. Beautiful well matched Stabilized Maple Burl hande scales. These scales have are some of the best I have seen from Arno, deep colors with lots of visible grain and natural beauty.
This is an excellent all purpose knife with a gently Tapered Tang and dual blade finish. The Flats on the blade are Mirror Polished while the Hollow Grind bevel is Satin. Very comfortable Finger grooves give this knife a natural feel when holding it, all your fingers slip right into place.
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.
