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 warthog tusk utility has a dramatic South African look and feel. The warthog tusk has been polished to a luster and is pinned with five stainless steel pins. The satin finished bolster brings the weight to the center of the knife for a perfect balance. The blade is satin finished in the hollow grind and mirror polished on the flats. This accentuates dramatic grind lines.
A great piece for a collection or to use in the field. From caping and skinning, to cooking around the campsite, this knife has you covered as a perfect everyday carry!
Excellent work throughout!
