Description: This Bill Burke utility knife is quite a find! The hand forged blade is formed from Bill's san mai Damascus. A ladder pattern Damascus forged from 1084 and 15N20 carbon steels surrounds a 52100 carbon steel core. Like his Pronghorn Hunters, this knife was pre-tested for edge flex and cutting ability before assembly. The heat treat follows the formulas developed by Bill in conjunction with Ed Fowler, Bill's teacher, and has been proven to create some of the sharpest and most long lasting edges found anywhere.
The stainless steel guard separates the Damascus blade from the desert ironwood handle. The handle has been well sculpted to fit comfortably into the hand in a variety of holds. Exceptional fit and finish throughout!
