    Description: Bill Burke, who was honored as a Master Smith June 2008, creates hunting knives and culinary knives. His work is frequently noted as being among the best in the world -- both in his understanding of design and the keen, long lasting edges. His knives are a pleasure to hold and a joy to use.
    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 arc of the cutting edge is perfect for a rocking, chopping motion with plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board.
    The blade was hand forged in a technique known as san mai. A dramatic damascus is forged to the sides of a high performance SG2 PM stainless steel. The bright, swirling pattern created from stainless steel and nickel is offset by the darkened SG2 core.
    The traditional Japanese octagonal handle is formed from dark toned ebony. The traditional octogonal shape, affords ergonomic control and comfort -- even when used for many hours. This handle shape, while being different from Western handles quickly becomes a favorite. A jet black buffalo horn ferrule completes the handle. The knife has perfect balance and feels exceptional in the hand.

    I have to say I'm not much of a fan of random damascus, but this one really looks interesting. Reminds me of looking at an old relief map. This will be a great score for someone.

    So this is the Sg2 Damascus Bill was talking about. Looks like the best of both worlds, visually stunning and a great cutter.

    That has got to be the coolest, most barbaric, over the top jigane/hagane border I have ever seen!

    This is actually the first blade that I made from this steel. test results can be read in the thread "sg2 core damascus san mai" thread in my sub forum. it has been deep etched and lightly buffed.
