Description: The Sheephorn Bowie has the styling of Mastersmith Ed Fowler's Pronghorns along with a thicker blade and clip point. Butch Deveraux has been working under the watchful eye of Mastersmith Ed Fowler and certainly the influence is immediately apparent. He is a graduate of Ed's School of High Performing Knives and shows tremendous skill both in implementation and style.
Like Bill Burke and Ed Fowler, each knife is pre-tested for edge flex and cutting ability before assembly. The heat treatment follows the formulas developed by Ed Fowler, Bill's teacher, and has been proven to create some of the sharpest and most long lasting edges found anywhere. When wet, sheep horn does not become slippery, and it is amazingly durable. The spacer is created by taking two sheep horn end cuts and aligning them outward, producing a very pleasing effect. By including black fiber spacers, Butch allows the handle to easily adjust to temperature and humidity changes.
The blade has a deep recurve and strong differential heat treatment lines. The large handle feels so natural in the hand, you’ll have a hard time putting it down. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
