Description: Bill Burke's chef's knives are among the highest performing cutlery found anywhere. His heat treatment and forging techniques result in edge holding that is far beyond other knives. This is a knife that you won't want to put down.
The mosaic damascus blade was forged from 1084 and 15n20 carbon steels to ensure excellent edge holding and chip resistance. The fine pattern is extremely detailed, showing Bill's impressive skills at the forge. The complexity of the pattern will have you staring at the blade for hours. The spine and choil are rounded for additional comfort. Burke's understanding of chef knife geometry is unmatched. This is as good as a chef's knife can get! Bill's touchmark is engraved on the left side of the knife and his M.S. mark is on the right side. Because this knife is forged from carbon steels, we recommend using camellia oil to protect the blade and wood handle.
The handle is stabilized black ash burl set on a full tang. The swirling figure of the wood nicely complements the dense damascus pattern. The handle is perfectly fit to 416 stainless steel bolsters. This is sure to become a favorite tool in your kitchen.
Exceptional work throughout!
