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 large skinner is Bohler N690 stainless steel with a hand rubbed satin finish. 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. The spine is rounded for comfort.
Handle scales are dyed and stabilized sable horn set on the full tang with stainless steel pins. The material is taken from the inside of the horn and has been polished -- combining a dramatic appearance with excellent durability. The contoured handle is extremely comfortable and provides a sure grip.
To keep the knife close at hand, a pouch style leather sheath is included.
Excellent work throughout!
