Description: Bill Burke, who was honored as a journeyman smith June 2003, makes 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 treatment 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 unique knife from Bill features a wrought iron guard and desert ironwood spacer. The main handle is elk antler and is finished off with a sheephorn butt cap. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
