Description: Mastersmith Bill Burke's chef's knives are among the highest performing cutlery found anywhere. His heat treatment technique results in edge holding that is far beyond other knives. This chef's knife features a complex damascus that Bill calls "Flying Dragons". Flames radiate from a central "dragon" in the exquisite steel. The damascus is forged from carbon steel and will have spectacular edge holding. The spine is nicely rounded for a comfortable grip.
This high performance chef's knife is a perfect choice as a primary knife in the kitchen. The long, deep-bellied blade is well suited for slicing vegetables and meats. The gentle arch of the cutting edge is perfect for a rocking chopping motion with plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board.
Like his hunting knives, this chef's knife was pre-tested for edge flex and cutting ability before assembly. The heat treatment followed the formulas developed Bill Burke in conjunction with Mastersmith Ed Fowler and creates some of the sharpest and most long lasting edges found anywhere.
The traditional octagonal handle is formed from macassar ebony. A black pakkawood ferrule is separated from the ebony with a stainless steel spacer.
This light, low profile knife has perfect balance and feels exceptional in the hand.
