Description: Mastersmith Henry Torres makes an exceptional, high performing knife! He had the opportunity to work under renowned Mastersmith Bill Burke in the spring of 2006. This allowed him to understand Burke's techniques of heat treating and implementation, which result in a level of edge holding rarely found elsewhere. Henry heat treated this blade using the same technique -- creating a differentially heat treated blade with a hard edge and softer, supportive spine. The result is exceptional. The 7-3/4 inch is hand forged 52100 carbon steel -- a steel that many knifemakers and collectors feel to have the highest performance found anywhere. It features an heirloom quality hand rubbed satin finish. A differential heat treatment line travels along the blade. This shows the transition between the ultra-hard cutting edge and the supportive spine. This technique ensures this knife will have the very best edge holding.
A satin finished nickel silver guard separates the blade from the handle. A hand fileworked spacer adds nice contrast. The black fiber spacer assists the handle to adjust to temperature and humidity changes. The natural texture of the stag provides a sure, comfortable grip. The crown stag locks your hand in place.
The knife is accompanied by a hand stitched pouch style leather sheath.
Excellent fit and finish throughout.
