Description: Mastersmith Bill Burke's chef's knives are among the highest performing cutlery found anywhere. His heat treatment technique, combined with his choice of steel, results in edge holding that is far beyond other knives. This is a knife that you won't want to put down.
This high performance chef's knife is a perfect choice as a primary knife in the kitchen. The long, deep-bellied blade is well suited for slicing vegetables and meats. The gentle arch of the cutting edge is perfect for a rocking chopping motion with plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board. The blade is marked on the left side with Bill's engraved BTB mark. The right side is engraved M.S. (Master Smith).
Like his hunting knives, this chef's knife was pre-tested for edge flex and cutting ability before assembly. The heat treatment follows the formula developed by Bill Burke in conjunction with Mastersmith Ed Fowler and creates some of the sharpest and most long lasting edges found anywhere.
The presentation grade snakeskin sycamore handle scales are set on a distal tapered full tang, carved to swell at the front of the handle, move into a slimmer waist and finally to swell again at the beak at the end of the handle. The wood on this one is particularly dramatic. The wood is stabilized to make it hold up well to the rigorous demands of either a home or commercial kitchen. A 416 stainless steel bolster separates blade from handle. The knife has perfect balance and is an joy to use. Exceptional work throughout!
