Arno Bernard Knives

Arno Bernard Knives is a family run South African company that has become legendary for high performance hunting, field and everyday carry knives. Built out of premium steels and crafted to withstand the toughest conditions, these small fixed blade knives cut like a razor and hold their edge remarkably well. Whether hunting cape buffalo in Mozambique or whitetails in Montana, an Arno Bernard knife tells your outdoor companions you have incredible taste and carry only the best gear. 

Arno and his family of craftsmen painstakingly choose the finest handle materials on the planet such as warthog tusk, mammoth tooth ivory, giraffe bone, sambar stag, paua shell, crocodile hide, desert ironwood, and select micartas and G-10s. These handle materials enhance the beauty of the flowing, well-designed lines of the Bernard line of cutlery. Don't let their beauty fool you - these small fixed blade knives have a full-tang construction and are built of premium steels such as Bohler/Uddeholm N690 stainless for excellent edge retention and toughness in the field. A finely crafted (included) cape buffalo leather sheath completes this incredible package. Although not inexpensive, when you consider the quality of materials used and hand-crafting of these Arno Bernard knives you will realize they are an incredible value.

Detailed inspection showed only high quality work. Actual use in various projects affirmed and amplified my extremely positive opinion of the quality of this knife. Kudos for both design and production quality. And it's a work of art - gorgeous knife, with exquisite, sturdy sheath. One of my best knife purchases ever.

Outstanding little knife

Robert J. - 2015 Featured Knife ★★★★★

This knife is just beautiful. Polished S35VN steel you can see you reflection in. Fit an finish is almost flawless. This is also a beast of knife. Warthog ivory is super tuff and the edge is razor sharper out of the box. Excellent value for the money. Very pleased.

While I had heard of Arno Bernard and his knives I had never seen one in person. At the recommendation of Jason I bought my first one, the Gecko. I was immediately impressed by the craftsmanship and the beautiful desert ironwood he uses. While he doesn't say it in his description the wood is burl; beautiful. If you're looking for a small EDC knife this is it. I also bought a pocket sheath from Jason which I use almost exclusively with the knife. It fits perfectly with the knife in the front pocket of my jeans and is indiscernible.

Now on to Jason and his crew. Probably the best pricing on the internet with one of the best selections. If it's pictured on his website it's in stock. If there are any questions about a pictured item the staff will pull that knife off the shelf and answer any questions you have about it. Even though he charges extra for USPS priority shipping mine came to me with free shipping half way across the US in 3 days. A great place to buy.

Carl B. - Bush Baby - Galago ★★★★★

This is my third Arno Bernard knife. Quality is the first thing that comes to mind. I use most of my fixed blades as EDC. 2.5" to 3.75". Arno Bernard has a fine assortment in this size range. Not to mention no one I know carries them but me.

Aleksandr D. - Grazer - Nyala ★★★★★

Smooth and perfected as all Arno Bernard's knives are. Nice round shape of blade, very sharp blade as always. Amazing polishing work on handles of these knives. They are art !

Diefans - Bush Baby - Squirrel ★★★★★

The knife is small but heavy enough to feel it right. It is razor sharp. The sheath is strong and holds the knife tight.

Chris H. - Bush Baby - Porcupine ★★★★★

Opened the box and held this very small knife for about an hour stright with the word "Whoa" repeating in my mind, its a beautiful piece of art!

Steve B. - Predator - Sailfish ★★★★★

This is a beautiful and well crafted knife. The mammoth molar handle and cape buffalo sheath really set it off. It will be put to good use soon during my Safari to S Africa. Great service and fast shipping from DLT.
