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 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. The spine is nicely rounded for a comfortable grip across extended use.
Sheep horn scales sit on a distal tapered full tang. Sheep horn is a perfect choice for hunting knives. When wet, it does not become slippery and it is amazingly durable. The handle is completed with mosaic pins. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
