Description: Mastersmith Ed Fowler's name has become synonymous with high performance. Since his earliest work, he strove to make the perfect working tool -- and many feel that he has succeeded.
This rare find is a dream for Ed's collectors. This early Pronghorn was made prior to 1990. It was cherished in a private collection and is in new condition. Only the sheath shows some wear.
This knife was made before Ed had made his acquaintance with 52100 carbon steel. The blade is forged to shape from 5160 carbon steel. The Pronghorn style blade is nicely defined with a slight recurve. It is marked on the left side with Ed's mark. The brass bolsters are carefully engraved with the Willow Bow..
The sheep horn handle fits comfortably into the hand. 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. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
