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 high performance utility knife is perfect for slicing fruits, vegetables, and meats. The thin blade produces a very clean, even cut without bruising the food being sliced.
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 Bill Burke in conjunction with Mastersmith Ed Fowler and creates some of the sharpest and most long lasting edges found anywhere.
A differential heat treatment is clearly visible in the differential hardness line approximately two thirds up the blade. This results in a soft, supportive spine and an extremely hard, long lasting edge. The bolster is integral -- a technique that, while common in production knives, is very rare in handmade knives due to the difficulty of implementation. The handle is formed from a solid piece of presentation grade walnut wood with a mammoth ivory ferrule. The knife has perfect balance and this ensures it is as much of a joy to use as it is to look at!
