Description: Perhaps most desired of Journeyman Smith Bill Burke's knives are his black sheep horn hunters. Black sheep horn is extremely hard to find -- especially of this quality. Dark tones move throughout the handle and spacer creating a very high contrast effect.
Bill Burke has become well known for making knives that are as high performance as hunters 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. Bill has forged this Damascus blade to shape and followed his usual heat treatment for an exceptional performance blade.
When wet, sheep horn does not become slippery, and it is amazingly durable. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
An amazing find!
