    Bill Burke - The man - the legend

    Bill Burke is one of my most admired knifemakers, and he make high performance working knives by forging 52100 bearing grade carbon steel, 5160 carbon steel, and his own Damascus. In 2008, he was honored to become an American Bladesmith Society Mastersmith.

    I think that's Oivind impersonating Bill. At least that is what I thought looking at the pictures.
