Description: Mastersmith Bill Burke's chef's knives are among the highest performing cutlery found anywhere. His heat treatment technique, combined with his choice of steel, results in edge holding that is far beyond other knives. This is a knife that you won't want to put down.
Utility knives are perfect for detail tasks and slicing. The width of this petty knife makes it exceptionally good for chopping garlic, shallots, slicing tomatoes and more.
The blade was hand forged in a technique known as hon warikomi. This modification of san mai (three layers) forges stainless steel to the sides of a carbon steel blade. 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.
Like his hunting knives, this chef's knife was pre-tested for edge flex and cutting ability before assembly. The heat treatment followed the formulas developed by Mastersmith Ed Fowler in conjunction with Bill and has been proven to create some of the sharpest and most long lasting edges found anywhere.
Musk ox scales meet seamlessly with pinned bolsters. Musk ox horn is one of the rarest and most dramatic handle materials used in the knife world. The highly polished musk ox has a unique grain structure that is immediately captivating. It is nicely carved to swell at the front of the handle, move into a slimmer waist and finally to swell again at the beak at the end of the handle. The scales are set with nickel silver pins. The knife has perfect balance and feels exceptional in the hand.
