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 Bird & Trout is made from satin finished Bohler N690 stainless steel. N690 is created by Bohler in Austria. It takes an incredibly sharp edge and holds onto it. Increased toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping. It has been hollow ground to a thin, high performance edge. The spine has been rounded for a comfortable grip.
Warthog tusk handle scales are set to the full tang using stainless steel pins. The knife is very lightweight (just over 2 oz!) and comfortable to hold, making it perfect for a daily carry fixed blade. From caping fowl and fish to use as a EDC, this bird & trout knife will be a tremendous piece out in the field.
A cape buffalo leather pouch style sheath is included to keep the knife close at hand.
Excellent work throughout!
