Description: Burls & Steel is a husband and wife team based in Charleston, South Carolina. They work together to create unique, one-of-a-kind knives using old world techniques and adding a touch of modern flair. Ben Spurrier is the bladesmith who creates the knives and his wife Sydney handles the marketing and photography. We were very pleased to meet Ben at Blade Show 2021 and are excited to carry a variety of their high quality work!
This paring knife is a perfect choice for detail tasks - from taking the eyes out of potatoes to removing the heads from tomatoes. The short, thin blade combines control and precision.
The 3-1/2 inch damascus blade is made from 15 layers of alternating 1084 and 15n20 carbon steels providing the excellent edge retention and chip resistance that a high performance knife needs. The spine and choil are nicely rounded at the edges to accomadate a comfortable pinch grip. Because this knife is forged from carbon steels, we recommend using camellia oil to avoid rust and oxidation.
The Japanese-inspired octagonal handle is made from stabilized curly mango (Mangifera indica) secured to the tang using a brass pin. A spacer is formed from dyed and stabilized black ash burl. This is a knife that you won't want to put down!
Excellent work throughout!
