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 chef's knife is a perfect choice as a primary knife in the kitchen. The santoku is the traditional Japanese chef's knife. This comfortable design is a fantastic multipurpose chopper. The santoku has quickly become the new favorite for chefs in the West. The gentle arch of the cutting edge is perfect for a rocking chopping motion with plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board.
Like his hunting knives, this utility knife was pre-tested for edge flex and cutting ability before assembly. The heat treatment followed the formulas developed 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 hardness line approximately two thirds up the blade. This results in a soft, supportive spine and an extremely hard, long lasting edge.
The handle is formed from presentation grade curly koa set on a distal tapered full tang. The wood has a dramatic, fine curl with a chatoyant effect that results in a changing pattern when turned in the light. The stabilized wood holds up well to the heavy demands of either a home or commercial kitchen. 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 this ensures it is as much of a joy to use as it is to look at!
