Description: Bill Burke, who was honored as a Mastersmith in June 2008, is known for creating some of the best and highest performance knives that can be found anywhere. His heat treatment technique, combined with his choice of steel, results in edge holding that is far beyond other knives. Bill's work is truly exceptional, as is demonstrated in this Don Fob-inspired integral utility.
An integral knife -- meaning one which has one solid piece of steel from tip, to bolster and to the pommel -- is much harder to forge and grind than a standard pinned knife. It is much more technically demanding and time consuming but it is knifemaking at its finest. This exceptional utility knife will feel at home out in the field, as a paring knife in the kitchen, or as a cherished knife in a collection. It is the perfect length for detail-oriented tasks, from removing the tops from strawberries and tomatoes to the eyes from potatoes.
This 3-1/2 inch utility knife was pre-tested for edge flex and cutting ability before assembly. A particularly small grain structure is created by a heat treatment process incorporating low temperature forging, a triple quench, and a triple temper. This heat treatment follows the formula developed by Mastersmith Ed Fowler in conjunction with Bill and ensures exceptional edge holding.
The handle is formed from sculpted stag antler. The handle scales are carved to nestle in the hand, with full tang construction for strength and durability. The stag is highly polished where Bill has sculpted it to fit the tang, yet some of the stag's unique texture has been left to aid grippiness. The overall effect, combined with the damascus blade, is subtle, clever and elegant. A perfect balance makes this little utility knife a joy to use.
