Description: Mastersmith Bill Burke created this exceptional utility knife with the idea of creating a perfect every day carry knife. The hand forged 52100 carbon steel blade was triple quenched and triple tempered for grain refinement and optimal edge holding. Many makers and collectors feel that 52100 is among the best steels available for knifemaking. A differential heat treatment ensures strength and durability.
The natural texture of the sheep horn handle provides a sure, comfortable grip. The knife is accompanied by a pouch style leather sheath that is sure to keep this knife at the ready when not on display. An excellent knife from Bill Burke that is a unique digression from his norm, and truly a superior little performer!
