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.
Black Micarta is nicely rounded for a sure, comfortable grip. Micarta is light, tough and very slip resistant when wet, making it a great choice for knife handles.
The knife is accompanied by a sturdy Kydex belt sheath that is sure to keep this knife at the ready when not on display. A small Tek-Lok (included) allows for easy belt carry. Adding paracord would allow it to be used as a neck knife. An excellent knife from Bill Burke that is a unique digression from his norm, and truly a hard to find, superior little performer!
