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 steels, result 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 blade was hand forged in a technique known as san mai (three layers). Undulating, brightly colored brass, copper and stainless steel surround a V-Toku2 carbon steel core. V-Toku2 is a 'super-steel' created by Takefu, in Japan. Very high in carbon content (approx. 1.1%) this steel holds and takes an amazing edge. The effect created by the mokume gane walls is extremely captivating!
The bolster is formed mokume gane Bill created by forging together brass, nickel and copper into damascene layers. The handle is formed from warm toned ironwood. It is nicely carved to swell toward the front of the handle, move into a slimmer waist and finally to swell again at the end of the handle. Copper pins bring out warm tones.
The knife has perfect balance and feels exceptional in the hand. It will be among the best knives you will ever use to cut.
