Description: Bill Burke's knives are as high performance as a hunter knife can get. This Pronghorn is particularly rare. Bill has only made a very few Damascus Pronghorns and the result is exceptional. 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 sheep horn handle fits comfortably into the hand. 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. Bill has set a cut amethyst into the butt to finish it out. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
