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.
The blade was hand forged to shape from Bill's own Turkish Twist pattern damascus, beginning with carbon steels. This highly detailed damascus combines four separate twist pattern damascus bars, turned in opposing directions to complete the pattern. The Turkish Twist is one of the hardest classic damascus patterns to master.
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 presentation grade rosewood scales secured with two pins and a central mosaic pin. It is nicely carved to swell at the palm, move into a slimmer waist and finally to swell again at end of the handle. The bolster is formed by soldering 416 stainless steel to the blade and results in tremendous durability.
The knife has perfect balance and this ensures it is as much of a joy to use as it is to look at!
