Description: Bill Burke, who was honored as a Mastersmith June 2006, makes knives that are as high performance as a knife can get. He is best known for his sheep horn hunting knives. Here, he has put his hands to a very rare and very elegant folder.
Like his hunters, the blades were pre-tested for edge flex and cutting ability before assembly. The heat treatment and tempering follow the formulas developed in conjunction with Ed Fowler, Bill's teacher, and creates some of the sharpest and most long lasting edges found anywhere. The blade is formed from 52100 carbon steel -- a steel that many knifemakers and knife collectors find to produce the best and longest lasting edges. This folder includes a spey blade and a clip point.
Amber stag scales are perfectly fit to the 416 front and rear bolsters. The action is smooth and the blades perfectly centered. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
