Description: Journeyman Smith Bill Burke has become well known for making 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 Bill and Ed Fowler, Bill's teacher, and has been proven to create some of the sharpest and most long lasting edges found anywhere.
This exceptional Pronghorn hunter was created with a left-handed user in mind. For right handed knives, the handle swells into the palm on the right side of the knife, with the sheephorn forming a natural concave finger rest. This left handed knife was created for a perfect feel when held by a left-hander.
The recurved blade was hand forged from 52100 carbon steel and features a differential heat treatment, for a hard cutting edge and a soft, supportive spine. The brass guard brings the weight back to the center of the knife. 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. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
