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 choice in the kitchen. The long, deep-bellied blade is well suited for slicing vegetables and meats. 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 chef's 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 results in a keen, long lasting edge with a soft, supportive spine. The stainless steel bolster is soldered to the blade for strength and durability.
The handle is formed from presentation grade redwood burl and is set with stainless pins. The knife has perfect balance and this ensures it is as much of a joy to use as it is to look at!
