The Combat Commander features an elegant 12" blade with the Dawson's classic Midnight finish. This no-nonsense blade is made from ¼" high carbon 5160 steel and tempered with a custom heat treat. This produces a tough, shock resistant blade with a superior edge holding capability. This heat treat has been painstakingly developed over the lifetime of Barry's long career and is celebrated the world over for producing tough, battle ready blades. The high contrast hardline adds an authentic touch, following the proud tradition of the Samurai sword.
The tough and durable black Micarta handle is polished and shaped to fit perfectly into the hand, making these gorgeous blades a perfect and seamless extension of the arm. The Micarta is then overlaid with Japanese interlocking wrap for comfort and extra gripping power.
The Combat Commander comes in custom fitted black Kydex sheaths, designed to be worn on a belt or secured to a backpack or MOLLE TAC vest. Overall length is approximately 18".
