Description: Mastersmith Ed Fowler's knives are the hallmark of a perfect hunter. Each knife is pre-tested for edge flex and cutting ability before assembly. The heat treatment creates some of the sharpest and most long lasting edges found anywhere. This knife was made in the spring of 1998. It has been in a private collection and has been meticulously cared for. By all appearances, Ed could have made them yesterday! The top of the maker's mark is oriented toward the guard. They were made shortly after Ed moved from 5160 to 52100 carbon steel forged directly from ball bearings.
This blade features a grain pattern on the surface that is indicative of Ed's work. This pattern results in a particularly durable and long lasting edge. It is a result of many thermal cycles done in a very controlled temperature range while forging.
The blade was forged from 52100 carbon steel ball bearings. Ed made knives from ball bearings only for a short while before he began forging from 52100 flat bar. 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 is forged at low temperature. It is 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 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.
