Description: Ed's knives are the hallmark of a perfect hunter. This is an early example of Ed's work -- prior to his switching to 52100 carbon steel. The blade is highly polished rather than the etched finish that we are most used to. The knife features Ed's mark oriented toward the bolster. This knife has been in a private collection and has been meticulously cared for. Both the blade and sheath are in near-new condition and do not appear to have been used to cut.
The sheep horn handle is nicely sculpted and fits comfortably into the hand. This rare handle is equally comfortable for a left or right handed user. The handle swells nicely at the palm for a secure, comfortable grip. 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.
