The Chief rules them all as a superior outdoors knife! Its classic drop point blade style is custom heat-treated and hollow ground from CPM-3V steel to a fine, strong point. Holds an excellent edge while maintaining an outstanding level of strength and flexibility.

The handle has been textured and shaped by hand for comfort, with a subhilt and hand guard for easy and secure handling. It features full tang strength and flexibility, with an extended tang for glass breaking or applying concentrated force.

The Chief is the one to beat for hiking, backpacking, and as an excellent all-around camping and field knife.
So good it's my second one
"Even though the Chief doesn't look like a utilitarian knife it is actually very handy with the daily chores. I like the comfort and balance so well this is my second Chief. (different finish and scales)"

Cu takes the Au
"This knife is magnificent! The design is beautiful with flowing lines, great hand fit, and spectacular finish. The copper finish in the steel is unique and looks amazing. Must take a look!"
- Paul H., Sammamish, US
"I knew given their technical abilities and reputation that I would receive a sharp, strong and durable blade from this family run business. It quickly became one of my prized possessions. Thank you to the Dawson family and team members."
