Description: This dramatic steak knife set was hand build by South African knifemaker Arno Bernard. 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.
The hollow ground blades are hand ground Austrian Bohler N690 stainless steel. N690 ensures a keen, long lasting edge with good resistance to chipping. It is a great choice for high performance, hard use knives. The long, slender blades are extremely elegant and will create a truly unique, dramatic place setting. They are razor sharp.
Stabilized warthog tusk scales are set on the full tang for strength and durability. The handles are nicely rounded for a comfortable grip.
This set of six steak knives is accompanied by a hand built presentation box by Brian Coetzee.
We recommend hand washing.
Truly exceptional!
