Description: Bill Burke, who was honored as a journeyman smith June 2003, makes knives that are as high performance as knives 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 camp knife features a 12 3/4 in. blade with a strong, thick, spine. This is the largest sheep horn knife the Bill has made to date. The weight and balance in the hand are exceptional -- resulting in a feeling similar to a Kukri. This is a knife that has to be swung! The handle is a large section of black sheep horn. Black horn of this quality and size is particularly rare and sought after.
The differential heat treatment adds to the effect, creating resilience at the spine with an edge that won't quit. The handle is formed from natural sheep horn, which does not become slippery when wet and is amazingly durable. The spacer is created by taking two sheep horn end cuts and aligning them outward, producing a very pleasing effect. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
