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.
The blade was hand forged in a technique known as hon warikomi. This modification of san mai (three layers) forges stainless steel to the sides of a carbon steel blade. The result is the exceptional edge holding of carbon steel with significantly easier care. The transition line between stainless steel and carbon steel is exceptionally dramatic.
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 by Mastersmith Ed Fowler in conjunction with Bill and has been proven to create 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 sheep horn. Sheep horn provides a sure, comfortable grip -- when wet, sheep horn becomes grippy, rather than slippery. A silicon bronze spacer adds a nice contrast. The handle is nicely carved to swell toward the front, move into a slimmer waist and finally to swell again at the back. The knife has perfect balance and feels exceptional in the hand.
