2018 Knife of the Year

For our 2018 Sporting Classics Knife of the Year, Arno Bernard Knives of Bethlehem, South Africa, is handcrafting a wonderful two-knife set.

Our African Hunter pairs up a Bohler N690 stainless-steel blade with a handle fashioned from warthog ivory. Measuring just over 7½ inches overall with a hollow-ground, drop-point blade of 3½ inches, this knife will serve equally well for field-dressing game or just to stimulate daydreams of Africa. The stunning crème-to-caramel coloring and subtle striations in the ivory combine to make each knife unique.

Our African Bush Knife can be your go-to blade for every sort of camp chore. Measuring 978 inches, it features a 538-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.

Twenty of each model will be available for immediate delivery beginning on October 1. Subsequent orders will be filled in six to eight weeks.
