Description: Bill Burke, who was honored as a Master Smith June 2008, creates hunting knives and culinary knives. His work is frequently noted as being among the best in the world -- both in his understanding of design and the keen, long lasting edges. His knives are a pleasure to hold and a joy to use.
This high performance chef's knife is a perfect choice as a primary knife in the kitchen. The long, deep-bellied blade is well suited for slicing vegetables and meats. The gentle arc of the cutting edge is perfect for a rocking, chopping motion with plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board. Because this knife is forged from carbon steels, we recommend using camellia oil after use to avoid rust and oxidation.
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 Bill Burke developed in conjunction with Mastersmith Ed Fowler and creates some of the sharpest and most long lasting edges found anywhere.
The blade was forged to shape by Bill in a complex mosaic damascus of exploding stars. The high contrast of the damascus pattern is immediately captivating from a distance and holds attention upon closer inspection. The mosaic damascus bolsters are integral to the blade, rather than being pinned or forged welded. Though integral knives are regularly done in production work, creating an integral bolster in a custom setting is extremely difficult and shows the maker's skill at its best.
The handle is formed from presentation grade Arizona desert ironwood. The wood combines warm tones with darker chocolate veins. It is nicely carved to swell toward the front of the handle, move into a slimmer waist and finally to swell again at the beak. The knife has perfect balance and feels exceptional in the hand.
A masterpiece!
