Description: Bill Burke's knives are as high performance as a hunter knife can get. In the last two years, Bill has been experimenting with Damascus, producing knives that perform far better than was previously thought possible. 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 -- providing a wide variety of hand holds. When wet, sheep horn does not become slippery, and it is amazingly durable. The spacer was formed from ebony and is surrounded by red fiber. This allows the sheephorn to adjust to changes in temperature and humidity when out in the field. Excellent fit and finish throughout and a phenomenally performing knife.
