Website Improvements

You may have noticed a few changes around our website recently. We think these improvements will greatly enhance your experience with Dawson Knives. Here’s a quick summary of what’s new to bring you up to speed!


Everything's In Stock Now

In order to better meet demand and drastically reduce turnaround times, we’re no longer accepting back orders. That means everything you see available online is in stock now and ready to ship the next business day.

Fast Shipping

In the past, average order turnaround times ranged between 6, 8, 12 weeks or more. Now only in-stock knives are available to order online. No more long turnaround times – great for last minute gift giving!

Back In-Stock Notifications

If we’re out of a model or color that you want, click the “Notify Me” button on that model’s page, choose the handle color you want, and as soon as we build one, you’ll be notified automatically.

Simplified Shopping

We’ve sorted our knives by specialty to make finding what you need faster and easier: Hunting, Backpacking + Survival, EDC and Rare + Unique. Though many models shine in a variety of jobs, these curated collections are a great starting point to help you choose the best tool for your next adventure.

Enhanced About Us Page

We've redesigned our Meet The Dawson Clan page so you can get to know us all  a little better!


We’ve got lots of exciting future projects in the works as well:

New Steel

We’ve just begun testing a new batch of CPM-3V, with plans to introduce it into our lineup next year. This high-tech powder steel is forged right here in the USA and offers outstanding alloy uniformity and strength. This translates into increased wear resistance, better edge holding, a cleaner finish and superior toughness for the user.

New App

We’re super excited about a new app we have currently in development that will be centered around the knifemaking and collecting community. The details are still under wraps, but we think it will be unlike anything you’ve seen so far!

New Models

New releases are on the way! Watch our website for the all-new Warthog Camp Knife and the Budo, a Japanese-inspired modern tanto. And have you seen the latest additions to our line-up, the big dawg Bodyguard and the lean, mean, Mojave?

It’s called the War Dog, Greg. It’s out of production right now, but Dennis does still make one occasionally. If you haven’t already, be sure to subscribe to our email list and we’ll let you know as soon as we finish a new one!
