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 will astonish you with its lightness, maneuverability and stunning good looks.
Petit gyuto hocho, meaning "small slicing knife", are great general purpose kitchen utility knives. The 6-1/8 inch, slender blade makes it very useful and versatile from slicing fruit to chopping garlic. The thin blade produces a very clean, even cut without bruising the food being sliced. The blade shape, reminiscent of a honesuki, results in a stronger tip.
Honwarikomi knife blades are created by beginning with carbon steel (to form the core and cutting edge) that is then encased in a steel with greater stain-resistance. As a result, the cutting edge of the blade is as sharp and durable as a 100% carbon steel knife, while the stain-resistant steel outer layer makes this knife significantly easier to maintain.
Like his hunting knives, this utility knife was pre-tested for edge flex and cutting ability before assembly. The heat treatment follows the formula developed by Bill Burke in conjunction with Ed Fowler and creates some of the sharpest and most long lasting edges found anywhere.
The handle is formed from koa, a wood with stunning grain structure and lovely chatoyancy. The knife has perfect balance and is an utter joy to use.
