Big Bear Nuclear Winter Finish

I am extremely happy with this knife! I wish I had two!! One to use and one to put in the safe. The quality is outstanding and edge is extremely sharp. Hats off to the sheath man! Very nice knife that feels much lighter in hand than expected.

Beautiful workmanship

I took advantage of a recent sale to add 2 new Dawson knives to my Dawson collection, the Big Bear and Forester. As with the others, I'm always impressed with the quality and workmanship that is immediately evident when you both see and handle these pieces of art. Now that I'm at six knives, I may have to take a break, unless something irresistible comes along.

This is my 2nd dawson...I actually got it as a gift for my friend. I have the spectre finish big bear for myself. Absolutely amazing quality. I have full confidence with it in the backcountry. I liked it so much I had to make sure my buddy had one for himself.

Superb Big Bear

My Third and most beautiful Dawson blade in Magnacut.

Shipping was lightning fast at two days and the colors and hamon on this blade is absolutely stunning. I love Arizona Copper finish and Magnacut takes a razor edge.

I slightly reprofiled to 17 degrees on my worksharp and its one helluva chunk of blade. Iam not afraid to chop or bull my way through anyrhing as this blade can take a pounding if needed. Sheath fits it like a small short sword!

Trick is using it its so damn handsome! Thank you Dawson family once again you guys outdid yourself and my BB is worth every penny. Iam a happy guy here near Atlantic City! Godbless..

Outstanding Knife!

Everything about this knife is outstanding. The fit and finish, the grind lines, its sharpness out of the box, the comfort of the handle, as well as the quality of the hybrid Kydex and leather sheath. This is my first knife from Dawson Knives, as well as my first knife made from MagnaCut. I was looking for a knife made from MagnaCut and could not be more satisfied with the Big Bear from Dawson Knives.

Their customer service was outstanding as well. I was able to add engraving to my knife after I ordered it, and I was also able to change the shipping address for it due to unplanned travel. In both instances, the crew at Dawson Knives was able to accommodate my requests and the knife shipped rapidly to the correct loction.

This knife will be my go-to knife for hunting and camping, and I cannot wait to use it in the field. I am so impressed with this knife's quality that I plan to purchase a Huntsman from Dawson Knives as soon as the variant I want is back in stock.
