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 Michael Burch of Burchtree Bladeworks
Just Received ~ Direct from the Maker
This is a beautiful example of Michael’s work, a one off he has created called the Wharnie
Like many of Michael’s designs, this is A beefy precision Framelock folder that is the perfect size for EDC. A Full Contoured and Stonewashed Thick Titanium frame make this a lightweight powerhouse.
The blade was hand Ground from Chad Nichols San Mai Damascus ~ Chad made the Damascus made for last years Redneck Summit (or RS II as I like to call it). The core is 1095 and the Pattern is unique to a small batch that Chad created. Of course the precision Heat Treatment and was done by Michael.
Michael and I spoke and he explained that he hand turned and Anodized the Custom Titanium Thumbstud and the Titanium Lanyard Bead for this knife to match the Ti Backspacer.
Textured Thumb Lock, Perfect lock up that is rock solid.
The Spine of the blade has a subtle Thumb Ramp and custom Thumb Ridges.
Thick Titanium Custom Clip has been Anodized to compliment the other Ti components. Set for Tip Up carry.
Complete with a Cert of Authenticity and a Padded Zipper case.
