Description: In 2006, Bill Burke has focused on expanding the types of knives that he is known for. Though he continues his love for the Fowler style knife, he also wants to create art knives and other styles of hunters with the same high performance edge. This is one such knife.
Bill created this masterpiece with two interchangeable blades -- one Damascus and one carbon steel. The carbon steel blade was forged to shape from 1095 carbon steel. It was heat treated using traditional Japanese techniques -- by water quenching and clay tempering. This technique results in a strong a hamon (clay heat treatment line) that travels along the blade -- showing the transition between the soft, supportive spine and the ultra-hard, keen edge. The Damascus blade integrates five bars of explosion pattern Damascus into a dramatic and engaging pattern that is also reflected in the handle. The blades can be switched out by removing the screw in the back of the handle. The handle features fossil mammoth ivory set in a bold Damascus frame. Exceptional fit and finish throughout!
