Description: Butch Deveraux has been working under the watchful eye of Mastersmith Ed Fowler and certainly the influence is immediately apparent. He is a graduate of Ed's School of High Performing Knives and shows tremendous skill both in implementation and style.
Like Bill Burke and Ed Fowler, 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. 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.
The size of this yearling is very engaging -- large enough to get the task done, but small enough to nearly forget that it is at your side until needed. The blade has a nice drop point and strong differential heat treatment lines. The small, three finger handle feels almost like and extension of the hand. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
