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.
This paring knife is a great choice for detail tasks such as slicing garlic, taking the eyes out of potatoes and the heads off strawberries. It is one of the most important knives in the kitchen, second only to your all-purpose chef's knife or santoku.
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. The spine is forge finished and assists foods to release from the sides of the knife when slicing.
Like his hunting knives, this paring knife was pre-tested for edge flex and cutting ability before assembly. The heat treatment follows the formulas developed in conjunction with Mastersmith Ed Fowler and creates some of the sharpest, longest lasting edges found anywhere.
The handle is formed from extremely rare high Arctic musk ox horn. Musk ox horn is one of the most rare and majestic handle materials used in the knife world. The highly polished musk ox has a unique grain structure that immediately grabs the eye. The handle scales are carved to nestle in the hand, with full tang construction for strength and durability. A perfect balance makes this little parer a joy to use. Excellent fit and finish throughout!
