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 sujihiki is well suited for slicing and portioning meats and fish due to the slender, long blade. Extremely sharp, it is also well suited to preparing sushi and sashimi.
This blade was hand forged from 52100 carbon steel. A differential heat treatment line is clearly visible in the steel, showing the transition between very hard, edge steel, and the soft, supportive spine.
Like his hunting knives, this slicer was pre-tested for edge flex and cutting ability before assembly. The heat treatment followed the formulas developed by Mastersmith Ed Fowler in conjunction with Bill and creates some of the sharpest and most long lasting edges found anywhere.
The stainless bolster was soldered to the blade for strength and durability. The handle is formed from presentation grade spalted box elder burl and is set with two satin finished pins and one central mosaic pin. The wood is stabilized to make it hold up well to the rigorous demands of either a home or commercial kitchen. It is nicely carved to swell at 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 knife has perfect balance and feels exceptional in the hand.
