Description: Arno Bernard Sr. is a maker from South Africa and has been making knives for over 35 years. He has been a member of the Knifemakers Guild of Southern Africa (KGSA) for over 20 years. Living in South Africa has allowed him the luxury of using many different exotic handle materials -- some even collected himself.
This drop point hunter is made from Bohler N690 stainless steel. N690 takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds onto it. Increased toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping. The blade has been hollow ground to a high performance edge. A stonewash finish hides wear.
Stabilized kudu horn handle scales are set to the tang using stainless steel pins. The material is taken from the inside of the kudu horn and has been highly polished -- combining a dramatic appearance with durability.
This sturdy knife is comfortable to hold and has excellent balance. From skinning, to field processing, to cooking around the campsite, this knife has you covered!
The knife is accompanied by a cape buffalo hide leather sheath.
Excellent work throughout!
