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 steels, result in edge holding that is far beyond other knives. This is a knife that you won't want to put down.
This high performance paring knife is a perfect choice for detail tasks such as slicing garlic, taking the eyes out of potatoes and the heads off strawberries. It is one of the most important knives in the kitchen, second only to your all-purpose chef's knife or santoku.
The blade was hand forged in a technique known as san mai (three layers). Undulating, brightly colored brass, copper and nickel surround a V-Toku carbon steel core. V-Toku, the steel which forms the cutting edge, is a 'super-steel' created by Takefu, in Japan. Very high in carbon contact (approx. 1-1.1%) this steel holds and takes an amazing edge. The effect creating by the mokume gane walls is extremely captivating!
The handle is formed from extremely rare high Arctic muskox horn. Musk ox horn is one of the most rare and majestic handle materials used in the knife world. The highly polished horn has a unique grain structure that immediately grabs the eye. It is nicely carved to swell toward the front of the handle, move into a slimmer waist and finally to swell again at the beak at the end of the handle. Muskox horn is a perfect choice for use in either a home or commercial kitchen. The bolster is formed from 416 stainless steel, pinned and soldered to the blade for strength and durability.
The knife has perfect balance and feels exceptional in the hand.
