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 Utility Knife is made from 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. The blade was stonewash finished then brought to a mirror polish which helps it hide scratches from use. The blade has been hollow ground to a thin, high performance edge. The spine has been rounded for a comfortable grip.
The handle is made from brown G-10 set to the full tang using five stainless steel pins. Red fiber spacers contrast elegantly against the brown G10. The knife is very lightweight and comfortable to hold making it perfect for a daily carry fixed blade -- or use in the kitchen.
A brown leather pouch style sheath is included to keep the knife close at hand.
Excellent work throughout!
