Description: Jessica Burke is the 19 year old (as of the summer of 2016) daughter of Mastersmith Bill Burke. In the last couple of years, Jessica has begun making knives under the watchful supervision of her master smith father. The results have been absolutely amazing!
This high performance utility knife is perfect for slicing fruits, vegetables, and meats. The thin blade produces a very clean, even cut without bruising the food being sliced.
The blade was made from high performing AEB-L stainless steel. AEB-L is one of the few stainless steel that performs close to the level of the best carbon steel knives. When used in the kitchen, carbon steel knives will often have their edge deteriorate due to oxidation. High performing AEB-L is a perfect solution!
The handle is formed from stabilized presentation grade black ash burl. The wood is particularly dramatic with a nice mix of medium and light tones and a tremendous figure. The handle is nicely carved to swell at the palm, move into a slimmer waist and finally to swell again at the end of the handle. The bolster is formed from 416 stainless steel.
The knife has perfect balance and this ensures it is as much of a joy to use as it is to look at!
