THE JOHNNY KNIFE

THE DENN EDITION

Sold out

Handcrafted in Bozeman, Montana with the highest-grade materials, the Johnny Knife is our tribute to the honor, integrity, and character of the man who inspired it, John Burch.

The Denn is the second release in our Johnny Knife series and is named for the craftsman who designed the hybrid Chef/Sheepshead silhouette that is the signature of our Johnny Knife series. The blade is hand-shaped from D2 Steel and accented with a textured motif inspired by the patterned skin of a Rainbow Trout, a nod to our roots on the banks of the Gallatin River.

Cryogenically heat-treated and hand beveled to the finest edge, the Denn boasts a high carbon, high chromium D2 Steel blade that provides unparalleled toughness and fantastic edge retention. Assembled with copper screws and a first-rate epoxy, the handle has been sealed at every connection point. Handles made from reclaimed mesquite are stabilized for five weeks in a vacuum chamber- ensuring the handles do not shrink or expand when exposed to heat or moisture. A handsome and functional finishing touch, the sheath is handmade in Wyoming from saddle grade leather.

We built the Johnny Knife to proudly stand the test of time. Our Lifetime Rough & Tumble Warranty guarantees each knife against defects in materials and craftsmanship, ensuring a lifetime of use and appreciation.

Care Instructions

D2 Tool steel is a high performance material, but as it is not a true Stainless Steel it must be wiped and dried after use. Please note, the steel will acquire a patina over time - it was designed and favored to be this way and age with grace like the leather sheath that protects it.

UNCOMPROMISING CRAFTSMANSHIP

Designed and crafted with durable, time-tested materials, the Johnny Knife is a sophisticated yet rugged tool that will endure a lifetime of culinary experiences.

D2 Tool Steel Knife - Burch Barrel

THE INSPIRATION

SON, BROTHER, VETERAN, HUSBAND, FATHER, BUSINESS OWNER

Born in 1925 in Baltimore, Maryland, John Burch lived a life that many would aspire to experience. His was a life well-led, one with great hardship and great joy. It included all the setbacks any tenacious person is bound to face in life - and along with it the many accomplishments that come with grit, determination, and a little bit of luck.

John Burch epitomized all the qualities we wanted Burch Barrel's first knife to exemplify. Dependability. Quality. Balance and Character. We dedicate the Johnny Knife series to him, and hope to honor his legacy with it.

CONSTRUCTION & MATERIALS

FINISHED BY HAND AT EVERY STEP

Handcrafted knives are not only forged with meticulous attention to detail, but they perform at a level that is unmatched by mass-produced blades. The result is a knife that is admired for its utility and appreciated for its craftsmanship.

Each individual Johnny Knife is fabricated, assembled and finished in Bozeman, Montana with the highest attention to detail and form.

Cryogenically  
Treated D2 Tool Steel

This high-carbon, high-chromium steel is texturized and then heat-treated with a proprietary mixture and cooled in liquid nitrogen to achieve maximum hardness and edge retention.

Stabilized Mesquite Handle

Reclaimed Mesquite is stabilized for five weeks in a vacuum chamber. This process pulls the air from the pores of the wood and fills the air pockets with resin for added durability and shape retention.

Leather Sheath for Knife

Saddle-Grade Leather Sheath

Entirely handmade from the first rivet to the final stitch, each knife sheath is crafted in Wyoming from premium saddle-grade leather. Once assembled, each sheath is branded with our signature B and oil-treated to last the test of time. A true piece of the west.
