Description: Mastersmith Bill Burke's kitchen 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.
This exceptional paring knife is the perfect length for detail-oriented tasks, from removing the tops from strawberries and tomatoes to the eyes from potatoes. Any time you need precision cutting that is more exact, a paring knife is a good choice to grab for.
Like his hunting knives, this culinary 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 creates some of the sharpest and most long lasting edges found anywhere.
A differential heat treatment is clearly visible in the hardness line evident on the blade. This results in a soft, supportive spine and an extremely hard, long lasting edge.
The stainless bolster was TIG welded to the blade for strength and durability. The handle is formed from Desert Ironwood -- one of the hardest woods found anywhere and is set with stainless steel pins. It is nicely carved to swell at the palm, move into a slimmer waist and finally to swell again at the beak at the end of the handle. The knife has perfect balance and feels exceptional in the hand.
