Description: Bill Burke's knives are as high performance as a camp knife can get. The large blade is nearly 1/4" thick at the spine, for a very sturdy blade with a great feel in the hand. 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. On this knife, Bill decided to experiment with 5160 carbon steel. He was extremely pleased with the performance of the edge. The buckeye burl scales are very dramatic with an excellent mixture of light and dark grain. Two mosaic pins attach the scales. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
