Love at first swing.

I love it is very smooth. I do wish that the handle was a little longer or the sheath a little shorter. It’s a bit hard to grab it with a full hand when all the way in The sheath. Over all awesome !!!

CPM3V Custom Praetorian blade

I recently received the 19”CPM3V Custom Praetorian blade from Dawson Bladesmiths! I’m absolutely satisfied with the fit & finish, weight, feel, balance & look of the blade! I am an archery elk hunter, and rifle deer hunter in the Pacific Northwest. And always believe in the reliability of a sturdy & sharp knife. I’ll send business your way if friends ask me about getting a great knife!
Thanks Dawson Knife crew!
