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. 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 clip point blade was forged from 52100 carbon steel -- a steel that many knifemakers and collectors feel to have the highest performance found anywhere. The blade was hand satin finished. A differential heat treatment assures a keen, long lasting edge. A 416 stainless steel guard meets perfectly with the Arizona desert ironwood handle. The ironwood has been sculpted for a particularly comfortable grip. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
