Description: Ed's knives are the hallmark of a perfected high performance knife. This Camp Knife was made shortly after Ed switched to 52100 but before he changed the orientation of his maker's mark. It is in new condition. Ed's heat treat has been proven to create some of the sharpest and most long lasting edges found anywhere.
The blade was forged at low temperature from 52100 carbon steel. This is a high carbon, high chrome steel in a very pure form and results in a knife steel that is as good as it gets. It was subjected to a minimum of 30 low temp thermal cycles, which requires a lot of hammer work. The blade was carefully hardened three times using a differential hardening technique developed by Ed for this steel. Triple tempered to push the steel to the limit, these blades are easy to sharpen, yet hold an edge better than any I have tested.
The large 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. The brass guard features Ed's Willow Bow engraving. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
