Description: This elegant bowie is among Bill Burke's master works to date. Since 2006, Bill has been incorporating Japanese influences into his knives. The results are consistently exceptional and show a dramatic fusion between East and West.
The W2 carbon steel blade was hand forged and 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 habaki (blade collar), ferrule, and S-guard are formed from antique wrought iron recovered from 1800s era ship anchor chains. The iron has been blued and provides a dramatic contrast to the light toned handle. The handle swells as it moves backward, resulting in a sure, comfortable grip. Exceptional fit and finish throughout!
