Description: Bill Burke, who was honored as a Mastersmith June 2006, is known for creating some of the best chefs knives and hunters that can be found anywhere. His attention to geometry and balance on his chef's knives, not to mention the exceptional edge holding clearly sets him apart. This traditional single bevel yanagi immediately grabbed my attention.
The yanagi is a traditional Japanese knife used to portion boneless fish fillets. It is mainly used for a drawing cut. The heel of the knife is placed on the fish and the knife is lightly pressed down, letting the weight of the knife do the work while drawing the blade toward you. Sashimi knives are also excellent for slicing other boneless meats.
Traditional Japanese chef's knives differ from European styled knives in that they are sharpened with a bevel on only one side. The opposite side is slightly hollowed. Consequently, this right-handed knife can be honed to a sharper edge than can double bevel knives.
Bill forged the blade into a tightly twisted damascus, combining 1084 and 15N20 carbon steels. The high layer count pattern is immediately captivating and will have exceptional edge holding. The distal tapered blade is perfectly balanced despite its length. The total blade length is 12-1/2, with a cutting edge measuring 11-3/4 inches.
The handle combines macassar ebony with a black pakkawood ferrule. A thin stainless steel spacer adds excellent contrast.
Truly a work of art!
