Description: Ed's knives are the hallmark of the perfect hunter. Each knife is pre-tested for edge flex and cutting ability before assembly. The heat treat creates some of the sharpest and most long lasting edges found anywhere.
This Gent's Pronghorn was forged from virgin 52100 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. The blade was forged at low temperature and was subjected to a minimum of 30 low temp thermal cycles, which required 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, the blade is easy to sharpen, yet holds an edge better than any I have tested. The left side of the blade features Ed's mark.
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. The brass bolsters have been engraved by Ed in a Willow Bow.
This knife has been in a single collection and is in excellent condition. The sheath and knife were worn and the sheath shows some wear. The knife was primarily worn at knife shows. Excellent fit and finish throughout.
