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.
San mai style blades are created by beginning with carbon steel (to form the core and cutting edge) that is then clad with stainless steel. As a result, the cutting edge is as sharp and durable as a 100% carbon steel knife, while the stainless steel outer layer makes this knife significantly easier to maintain. Many knifemakers and users feel that 52100 is among the best, if not the best steel currently used for knifemaking.
The heat treatment followed the formulas developed in conjunction with Mastersmith Ed Fowler. This technique results in some of the sharpest and most long lasting edges found anywhere.
The handle is formed from presentation grade curly koa. The tightly striated wood has a great mix of light and dark warm tones. It is nicely carved to swell toward the front of the handle, move into a slimmer waist and finally to swell again at the end of the handle. This stabilized wood will hold up well to the high demands of either a home or commercial kitchen. The bolster is formed from 416 stainless steel, pinned and soldered to the blade for strength and durability.
The knife has perfect balance and feels exceptional in the hand. It is a parinig knife you won't want to put down.
