The Strauss features a 3.2" blade made from D2 tool steel with a brushed satin. The needle-like tip and finger choil of this design makes it perfectly suited for fine detail work. The handle is 6Al4V titanium with a slim profile and raw brushed finish. There is no jimping on this knife but the single groove in the handle makes for a very comfortable and secure hold.
The Strauss is a unique story for Burnside Knives. It is respectfully named after civil engineer Joseph Strauss and also attributes its styling from the William Lyon family collection, the "disappearing top torpedo convertible roadster". Joseph Strauss patented the Bascule Bridge System in 1917 and is popularized for having created the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, California. Strauss is also well known for having designed the Columbia River Bridge in Longview, Washington, the Lewis and Clark Bridge and Burnside Bridge mechanism in Portland, Oregon.
