REMEMBERING AND HONORING ALL WHO SERVED - THANK YOU FOR YOUR SACRIFICE
LIMITED IN-STOCK INVENTORY
SHARPER. STRONGER. BETTER.
three generations strong
In 1973, Barry Dawson built his first knife shop inside a dilapidated barn. Fresh off a stint in Vietnam and flat broke, he built most of his machinery himself out of parts scavenged from the local landfill. What he didn't know, he learned, and what didn't exist yet, he invented.
Almost 50 years later Dawson Knives has grown to encompass three generations of knifemakers, all working together out of our shop in Prescott Valley, Arizona.
Love my new serengeti.
I heard about these knives on NaturalNews.com. Prior to that I knew nothing of Dawson Knives. I decided to check them out. When I went to their website, I found that many items were sold out. I decided to place my name on a waiting list. I received an email one day telling me that the item was now available. I recieve the hunting knife today. I am so glad that I put my name on that waiting list. This knife and sheath are of extreme quality. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I am looking forward to the Katana I'm interested in being available.
Do yourself a favor if you want a great knife. Put your name on the list.
Absolutely terrific knives. Worth every penny
This fits in my pocket perfect. It's never in the way as I move around. The sheath and knife fit perfect and very high quality. I'm happy with my purchase.
Purchased the Hunstman CPM magnacut blade, Arizona copper finish with black and white handle. Beautiful knife and feels great in the hand!
Very high quality, high craftsmanship, form design functional, as well as pleasimg to the eye!
The Chief is beyond my expectations ! The craftsmanship and artistry is beautiful. This is my first Dawson knife ... took me months to be able to purchase one that was available ... absolutely worth the wait. I will be checking back frequently as there are other styles I hope come available in the very near future. Thank you and GOD Bless !
The BEST rating is repeat business, this is my 2nd Dawson. I like it more than my first!(Explorer Elite). It is Beautiful, and feels great in my hand, and knowing that the metal is the best there is gives me confidence that this knife will handle anything I throw at it!
I have a small fortune in fixed blades. This thing is a contender with them all.
I think this thing would take a lot of punishment. I like it a lot.
They did a fantastic job on fit and finish. I will be buying a chopper from them next.. if he ever makes any magnacut ones with this handle and coating.
I was turned onto Dawson knives by Mike Adams I will never buy a knife that is not a Dawson ever again. The pequeño is the perfect small knife for everyday use but I’m sure I could skin an elk with it. Since buying the farrier a couple months ago I now own 6 They are all perfect. Tough yet beautiful and what an edge. My last two purchases are gifts for friends. The way Mike built them up I had high expectations, but they were surpassed. Being originally from Arizona, I love the copper finish. Now you just need kitchen knives and I will give my Henkels away.

Got the Deep Knotch for Father’s Day. It’s gorgeous and sharp. I also appreciate the sturdy pocket sheath. Can’t wait to gift it to my husband in a few weeks. Buy local. Support our daddies taking care of their family! :)
Now I’m not a man who would buy a modern version of a weapon forged for the spilling of your enemies blood on the battlefields of Sekigahara, but after listening to Mike Adams and learning about the coming zombie apocalypse and food riots, I knew I had to put aside some of my hard earned life savings to be sure I could buy this sword.
I prayed on my knees everyday that the sword would be in stock, because I know that in times like these, a weapon of this magnitude is in such high demand that it is almost unobtainable. This is May 2022, and even though satellite phones are all sold out, thank goodness we still have working internet and regular cell phone service. I logged on to the Dawsons Knives website and saw that the coveted katana blade was available! I could not type in my credit card information fast enough knowing that there were probably 50 other people doing the exact same thing as me.
My prayers were answered!
Now, I've always been a believer in the power of prayer. It didn't take long for the package to be delivered. I could hear the neighbor dogs howling in the distance when the long box was delivered to my door. I could see it right away. There was a glorious ray of sunlight spilling through the clouds like a magical spotlight catching all of my attention below. When I reached down to lift the box from my doorstep, the sound of the birds stopped. I could hear the soft music of a distant orchestra playing Handel's Messiah Hallelujah chorus echoing above me.
It all happened so quickly I don't even remember opening the box. Before I knew it, I was weilding a perfectly balanced katana in my hands. I could feel my biceps growing as I gripped the handle and a bead of sweat formed on my brow. I knew exactly what to do. And as if I had practiced the traditional art of iaido my entire adult life, the blade left the leather sheath and sliced through the air.
My wife could tell the difference immediately. I got a raise at work. My skin and hair have never looked better (Samurai hair is surprisingly very easy to maintain). I have my manly six pack abs back again like when I was 20 years old. Not to mention, with the power of this sword in my hands, our home is now completely invincible from any zombie attacks.
The only downside is that when I wear the sword, it does take me longer to get ready for work in the morning. Donning my entire ceremonial samurai armor with traditional Japanese meditation really doesn't add too much to my overall time. But, I must admit that when I have this sword on my side it does take much more time fighting off all the women propositioning me as I walk through the parking lot. "Sorry, I'm a married man," I tell them. Thus, I've decided that I will only yield the sword in the presence of my wife in the privacy of our own home. I'm afraid it's power is too great for everyday carry around town.
Received my Huntsman a few weeks ago and has been on my side or in my work bag ever since. I use it for everything from tree work to cutting & carving and slicing tomatoes and fruits for my lunches at work.
I am completely blown away by quality and craftsmanship of this knife. I've never even had anything close to this amazing of a knife. It's no wonder this particular knife has 57 5 star reviews with zero other review ratings. These ratings were earned through ingenuity and hard painful intelligent work and not by rigging stats.
I will cherish this knife for the rest of my life as long as I don't lose it or it gets stolen. Thank you Dawson Knives!
My everyday carry knife now. Perfect satisfaction. Real quality that’s hard to find nowadays
