African Bush Knife by Arno Bernard
The 2018 Sporting Classics Knife of the year can be your go-to blade for every sort of camp chore. Measuring 9 7/8 inches, it features a 5 3/8-inch clip-point blade of Bohler N690 stainless steel that is heat-treated to 59-60c Rockwell. The 4½-inch handle is made of rich African blackwood.
Each knife comes with a wrist thong hole complete with braided-leather “pigtail.” The blades are finished to a warm, hand-rubbed luster and carry the maker’s distinctive mark on the face side and “SC 1 of 75” on the reverse. Each knife is accompanied by a hand-fitted, top-grade leather sheath.
