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 most popular full grip Skinner, called the Warthog skinner. Beautiful well matched Stabilized Giraffe Bone hande scales.
These scales have deep color and lots of visible grain and natural beauty.
This is an excellent medium to large Game skinner 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 handle with secure forefinger cutout area, feels very natural when holding it.
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.
