Description: Mastersmith Bill Burke is well known for creating some of the highest performing cutlery found anywhere. If you are looking for a high performace daily carry that you can trust will be sharp when you need it, look no further. Bill Burke created this exceptional utility knife with the idea of creating a perfect every day carry knife. The low care, high performance SG2 san mai stainless steel blade will provide a keen, long lasting edge. The blade was hand forged in a technique known as san mai (three layers). A dramatic damascus is forged to the sides of a high performance SG2 PM stainless steel. The bright, undulating pattern created from stainless steel and nickel is offset by the darkened SG2 core. At 64 Hrc, this EDC Utility will have some of the best edge holding that can be found in any stainless steel knife.
Amber stag scales have plenty of natural texturing to provide a solid and comfortable grip. Bill nicely sculpted the pins to match the texturing of the stag. The distal tapered spine and full tang create a perfect balance.
The knife is accompanied by a sturdy Kydex belt sheath that is sure to keep this knife at the ready when not on display. The knife could easily be worn as a neck knife, carried in the pocket, or on the belt as a lightweight carry.
Excellent work throughout!
