Description: Mastersmith Bill Burke's chef's knives are among the highest performing cutlery found anywhere. His heat treatment technique results in edge holding that is far beyond other knives. This chef's knife, which is among his most dramatic to date, 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.
Like his hunting knives, this chef's knife was pre-tested for edge flex and cutting ability before assembly. The heat treatment followed the formulas developed Bill Burke in conjunction with Mastersmith Ed Fowler and creates some of the sharpest and most long lasting edges found anywhere. This is a particularly exceptional knife -- Bill created a san mai damascus with a random pattern damascus surrounding a W's pattern core. He then created a star burst effect -- this modified ladder pattern follows the curve of the knife for a particularly elegant chatoyant effect.
The handle is formed from presentation grade curly koa with a sheep horn spacer. This hard wood holds up exceptionally well to the heavy demands of either a home or commercial kitchen. It is nicely carved to swell at the palm, move into a slimmer waist and finally to swell again at the beak at the end of the handle. The knife has perfect balance and this ensures it is as much of a joy to use as it is to look at!
