Tthis was a really special project that probably won’t be repeated.
I had a customer ask for an Ed Fowler style knife.
If you know who Ed is, then I’m sure you can understand how interesting an idea this was. Not to mention that I had just recently met and hung out on Ed’s ranch in Riverton Wyoming.
I took on the prospect of making a knife like this to push my skills and understanding of knife making.
I also wouldn’t want to do any disservice or disrespect to Ed or his legacy.
Through an amazing set of circumstance, I was able to actually use Horn from Ed’s ranch that he had raised, himself to use on the handle of this knife!
