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 arc of the cutting edge is perfect for a rocking, chopping motion with plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board.
The damascus was forged from a carbon steel chain saw blade. The resulting high contrast pattern is immediately captivating both up close and from afar. The spine has been nicely rounded for comfort.
The traditional Japanese octagonal handle is formed from dark toned macassar ebony. The traditional octagonal shape affords ergonomic control and comfort -- even when used for many hours. This handle shape, while being different from Western handles quickly becomes a favorite. A jet black buffalo horn ferrule completes the handle.
The knife has perfect balance and feels exceptional in the hand.
