At the Lewisville gun show today and bought this knife from a individual.

I know its a Arno Bernard sr made knife

We think its Warthog Ivory scales

has a tapered tang in the handle

Hollow grind blade

Sharp as a razor

o.a.l. is 7 3/4

Blade is 3 7/8

scales have 6 pins

cape buffalo sheath

Logo - is different than what is on the latest knives ( maybe a earlier build)

Arno names each series of knives after African Animals trying to figure out what this is & approx. worth

I sent a email to S. Africa asking the providence of this knife and this is there reply, which is cool as this is a original by Arno SR which may make it worth a little more, I paid $200 for it without any knowledge of the maker just cause I liked the feel and shape, I originally thought it was walrus tusk scales turned out to be warthog Ivory, Arno Bernard knives are made from Bohler N690:



Based on the logo and the shape, I estimate that this knife was built approximately 10+ years ago by Arno Bernard Sr. before he joined with his sons under the current logo.

It falls in the Grazer Series and looks like a forerunner of the current Springbok design.

I can send you a Cape Buffalo Sheath that should fit that particular model for $50 ($40 for the sheath plus $10 shipping). If you are interested in purchasing a sheath, I will send you a paypal request.

Kind Regards,
Nathan Reynerson
