Description: This small knife can be carried on a belt or in the pocket. Bill Burke's knives are as high performance as a hunter can get. Each knife is pre-tested for edge flex and cutting ability before assembly. The heat treat follows the formulas developed by Ed Fowler, Bill's teacher, and has been proven to create some of the sharpest and most long lasting edges found anywhere. The three finger sheep horn handle fits comfortably into the hand. Bill's preferred hold on this hunter to have the forefinger in front of the guard, providing a very secure and accurate hold, though many different holding positions are extremely comfortable on this well shaped handle. When wet, sheep horn does not become slippery, and it is amazingly durable. The spacer is created by taking two sheep horn end cuts and aligning them outward, producing a very pleasing effect. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
