I have been friends with Michael Burch for a couple of years and I have seen his work expand in creativity and explode in popularity.
Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a Direct Dealer for Burchtree Bladeworks
This is a beautiful example of Michael’s unique fixed blade work, a Dao created with attention to detail and creativity that make this a one of a kind.
(Please excuse the Cat hair at the front of the blade)
I am a big fan Japanese inspired Integral knives ~ they are both wonderful to look at as well as extremely tough and this knife is both! The Japanese Cord wrap covers the Thick Black Stingray skin and this combination provides a very secure grip.
Crafted from 3/16″ Thick 1095, the visible Temper Line / Hamon on the blade is visible evidence of Michael’s precsion Differential Heat Treat with Clay Quench.
A precision EDC that will ride comfortably in your pocket or discreetly around your neck ~ a very secure Kydex Sheath will insure the knife stays where it belongs until you need it.
Previously owned but never used, carried or sharpened.
