    Love the Blade, however, Sheath could improve

    Love the Bodyguard, wish the hybrid Sheath was more like the other knife sheaths offered by Dawson where the blade locks more securely into the sheath and doesn't need the extra leather strap interfering with the draw and return of the blade especially if you needed to pull and return the blade in a speedy manner.

    Bodyguard -- Fantastic knife!

    This knife is absolutely stunning. I love the Scorched Earth finish and the red/black G-10 handle combo. The balance and movability in the hand is second to none. I order many tactical knives from various high-end manufacturers and this is by far the sharpest factory edge I've ever seen, and I'm incredibly picky about edge geometry and bevel finish. Only thing I noticed was the "Magnacut" mark is missing the middle letters entirely, so all I see is "Mag ut", and on the other side of the blade the "Dawson Knives" makers mark did not print legibly. That would be a big deal if this were intended as an investment display knife for the collection, but this one will be beat on tremendously as a working knife so any blurred maker's marks are irrelevant to me in this case. Can't wait to put the Magnacut through its paces. Keep up the great work, Dawson Knives!! I'll be buying many more from you.

    Best Quality Knive I Own

    I have been a knife collector for years. I have purchased 8 Dawson Knives and they are the best value and craftsmanship of any knives I own. Every new model I get, I am blown away at the quality of them. Love them all and live supporting small American business!
