The Arno Bernard Knives workshop is situated in the outskirts of a South African town called Bethlehem. In addition to the five Bernards, there are also 15 employees who help create the knives. This includes Zine Bernard, Arno’s wife, CFO, and Alta Bernard, Franco’s wife, who is the office administrator.
Each Bernard has a specific role to play in the crafting and producing of the knives. Arno Bernard Sr. is responsible for research and product development. Arno Bernard is the CEO of the company and also works with product development. Franco supervises the grinding team, new product design, and product testing. Juan heads up the handle division and maintenance, and Ruan is the Operations Manager and project coordinator. Of course, all of the brothers have some role in the actual hand finishing of the knives and sheaths.
We design and handcraft our knives using a superior quality steel in combination with authentic South African materials to create unique handles. Our designs are simple, yet beautiful. Though these knives are suited as collector items, they are designed to maximize practicality.
