Description: Bill Burke, who was honored as a Mastersmith in June 2008, is known for creating some of the best and highest performance knives that can be found anywhere. His heat treatment techniques result in edge holding that is far beyond other knives. Bill's work is truly exceptional, as is demonstrated in this elegant clip point hunter. It is perfect for use out in the field, but would be equally at home in a cherished collection.
This six inch blade was pre-tested for edge flex and cutting ability before assembly. A particularly small grain structure is created by a heat treatment process incorporating low temperature forging, a triple quench, and a triple temper. This heat treatment follows the formulas developed in conjunction with Mastersmith Ed Fowler and ensures exceptional edge holding. The blade was forged to shape from Bill's Star Burst pattern damascus. This modified ladder pattern follows the curve of the knife for a particularly elegant chatoyant effect. The left side of the ricasso is engraved with Bill's 'BTB' mark. The right side is engraved with 'MS' for Master Smith. The spine is an elegant ridge.
The handle is formed from stag antler. It has just enough of the natural texture for a secure grip, yet is smooth enough for hours of comfortable use. The butt cap is sculpted to nicely match the shape of the natural stag. A perfect balance makes this hunting knife a joy to use.
