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.
This san mai blade was created by beginning with 52100 carbon steel (to form the core and cutting edge) that is then encased in 416 stainless steel. As a result, the cutting edge of the blade is as sharp and durable as a 100% carbon steel knife, while the stain-resistant steel outer layer makes this knife significantly easier to maintain. Many knifemakers and users feel that 52100 is among the best, if not the best steel currently used for knifemaking. The top of the flats features an elegant forge finish. This both lends a tremendously engaging appearance, but also encourages foods to release from the sides of the knife. A finger rest is cut out of the choil, allowing the knife to be comfortably held in a pinch grip.
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 in conjunction with Mastersmith Ed Fowler and creates some of the sharpest and most long lasting edges found anywhere.
The handle is formed from stabilized presentation grade black palm wood. The wood has a nice mix of light and dark warm tones and is 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. The stabilized wood is a perfect choice for a chef's knife and holds up well to the heavy demands of either a home or commercial kitchen. The bolster is formed from 416 stainless steel, pinned and soldered to the blade for strength and durability. By distal tapering the blade, Burke ensures a perfect balance.
Exceptional fit and finish throughout!
