Description: Master Smith Henry Torres had the opportunity to work under renowned bladesmith Bill Burke in the spring of 2006. This allowed him to best understand Bill's techniques of heat treating and implementation, which result in a level of edge holding rarely found elsewhere. With the sheep horn handle, Bill's influence is clearly visible.
The drop point blade was forged from 52100 carbon steel -- a steel that many knifemakers and collectors feel to have the highest performance found anywhere. It was hand satin finished. The thumb ramp has been fileworked, assuring a secure thumb purchase. Sheep horn scales sit on a full tang. When wet, sheep horn does not become slippery, and it is amazingly durable. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
