If there was a “Best Knife” classification like there is for British Best Guns, the new Arno Bernard imamba® folding knife would fall into that category. Just like “Best Guns”, what you see is only part of the equation and what you do not see is just as important, and in some cases, even more important than the visible attributes. This new knife has a rounded opening tab on the top of the blade that enables one-handed opening.

Today, 99% of folding knives are taken off machines and assembled. In direct contrast to that, each one of these beautiful knives has all four brother’s fingerprints all over it. The metallic tolerances they achieve are less than 1/100th of a millimeter which is one-tenth the thickness of a piece of paper. Each blade is hand-polished to a mirror finish to highlight any areas that require additional attention. After that, the blades are put in a tumbler with ceramic media to produce a satin gloss finish. The blades are then sharpened by hand. Thus you can see the shiny razor sharp hollow ground edge contrasting against the satin gloss body of the blade.

As with all great products, it all starts with the finest materials. The blade is made from RWL 34 stainless steel, the frame and pocket clip are titanium to keep it light and the pocket clip has no external screws for a clean visual. This large folder measures 7.9” overall with a 4.1” frame, 3.4” deep bellied blade and yet only weighs 4.3 ounces.

The locking mechanism is lapped by hand until the two surfaces engage at 100% for unmatched strength. While the locking mechanism is extremely durable and made to last a lifetime, if it ever wears out, it is easy to replace. The premium, friction-free ceramic ball bearings that make the action as smooth as glass contribute to the durability of this new offering. The pocket clip is a new design that is comfortable to hold in the hand which is something many people on the knife forums put on their “wish list”. If you want to open it up with two hands, there is a skeletonized nail notch that makes that possible.
