Description: Bill Burke, who was honored as a journeyman smith June 2003, makes knives that are as high performance as knives 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.
This camp knife features an 8" blade with a strong, thick, spine. The differential heat treatment adds to the effect, creating resilience at the spine with an edge that won't quit. The handle is formed from natural sheep horn, which does not become slippery when wet and 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.
