This Arno Bernard Meerkat knife is from the Bush Baby series. It features a beautiful wart hog tusk handle. The front has a nice golden orange color striation, and the reverse side is beautiful white and ivory. While both sides of this knife are suitable for scrimshaw – this knife is a beautiful as is.
This is a full tang knife blade crafted from N690 steel. The satin finish shows off the precision of the hand polished hollow ground blade. The blade length is 2 ½” and 5 ¼” overall.
Maybe you are thinking about having custom scrimshaw art added onto this Meerkat knife? I can imagine a small wild cat, a caracal perhaps, crouched and ready to pounce, or a few quail startled from their hiding place. Your ideas or mine, this knife is a real gem ready to be etched. For other ideas check out myGallery Page. For custom work on this knife contact me here.
Scrimshaw artwork is additional and determined by the amount of coverage and design.
