In 2005 Arno Bernard Jr started Arno Bernard Knives. Two years later he was joined by his brother Franco. Arno and Franco are the sons of internationally known custom knife maker Arno Bernard Snr. The brothers say that a lot of the success of Arno Bernard Knives is due to the knowledge, guidance and training passed to them by their father.
