While we have a background similar to other knife makers in South Africa, we have grown from a “one man operation” that Arno Bernard Sr. started in 1979 to a factory that today supports over 20 families.
The Bernard family is very proud that they can contribute to their local community in Bethlehem, South Africa by hiring and training many wonderful men and women of integrity. Our factory is a close knit family. Some great people have been with us for over a decade and have become leaders in their communities, their families, and their places of worship.
Our goal is to allow many families to improve their quality of life for many generations. We work together, play together, and respect each other.
