Description: Master Smith Henry Torres had the opportunity to work under renowned Mastersmith Bill Burke in the spring of 2006. This allowed him to learn 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 7 1/2 inch long blade was forged to shape from 52100 carbon steel -- a steel that many knifemakers and collectors feel to have the highest performance found anywhere. It was hand satin finished. Sheep horn scales sit on a full tang, assuring extremely durability. Sheep horn is a pleasure to use on a hunting/camping knife because when wet, it does not become slippery, and it is amazingly durable. The handle is finished with a forge finished scroll. Accompanied by pouch style leather sheath. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
