Description: Bill Burke, who was honored as a Master Smith June 2008, creates hunting knives and culinary knives. Bill's work is frequently noted as being among the best in the world -- both in his understanding of design and the keen, long lasting edges. His knives are a pleasure to hold and a joy to use.
This high performance chef's knife is a perfect choice as a primary choice in the kitchen. The long, deep-bellied blade is well suited for slicing vegetables and meats. The gentle arch of the cutting edge is perfect for a rocking chopping motion with plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board.
The blade was hand forged in a technique known as san mai (three layers). A 52100 carbon steel core is surrounded by layers of 416 stainless steel. The result is the exceptional edge holding of carbon steel with significantly easier care. The transition line between stainless steel and carbon steel is exceptionally dramatic.
The heat treatment follows the formulas developed in conjunction with Mastersmith Ed Fowler. This technique creates some of the sharpest and most long lasting edges found anywhere.
The Japanese inspired handle has been formed from presentation grade box elder burl. The Wa style handle has a ridge on the right side, providing a comfortable grip. The wood is stabilized so as to hold up to the heavy demands of a commercial or home kitchen environment. A 'bolster is formed from carbon fiber, providing a nice contrast.
Exceptional work throughout!
