Another Solid Dawson

The War Dog w/apocalypse black finish is my seventh Dawson, and truly a favorite. The finish is incredible and the leather wrap feels great in my hand. It seems like everytime i say i own enough Dawsons, they release another beauty.

A Beautiful War Dog!

Stout, full hand of war knife beauty. This is a hard-use weapon with all the attributes you would expect from this design, on steroids! If you have small hands or are slight of body, it might be a handful. For the rest of us, it’s perfect. You can feel the MagnaCut steel quality with every kind of use and it holds its edge through extensive use. I am pleased with how well it accepts field sharpening although it really only need one touch up after 2 weeks of heavy use. The finish looks like new with a good wipe off. The tip stayed sharp and true to form through some unexpected abuse. Now to the fit & finish. It’s beautiful from tip to pommel and the brown color handle is nice and dark, which I really like. The quality of the finish is absolutely stunning. This is my working belt knife for the foreseeable future. Thanks Dawson for another truly exceptional weapon.

War Dog

Truly the finest version of the renowned KABAR Marine fighting knife ever made. The knife is made with the finest and most modern materials available, yet the whole package (the knife, the sheath and the rivets on the sheath) looks correct for the WWII period. I have collected knives for 50 years. I probably have 75-80 high-end/handmade knives in my collection including 6-7 Dawsons. This knife is my favorite
