War Dog #271 Scorched Earth Finish -

What a great knife to get my hands on! I'd been wanting one of these for a while, and all of a sudden I was on my laptop one evening and an e-mail came through that there were a few War Dogs available so I jumped on the opportunity immediately! I received my knife in between 10 and 14 days. First impressions, just looking over it in the sunlight on my back porch here, the finish is great. I really like the scorched earth version. It came out great, especially in the sunlight with the irregular spots and the subdued brown background. I do wish the spots (of the scorched earth blotches) were a little more distributed on both sides of the blade but they are all unique. The stacked leather on the handle is smooth and the fit and finish was professionally done. There is a slight protrusion on one side where the pommel is pinned at the bottom of the knife but it's barely noticeable. It also comes with a premium leather sheath with a strip of leather acting as a safety latch over the hilt/guard and it fits snug. The guard is on the top and bottom of the blade with two pre-drilled holes for lashing and there is a finger choil for a different grip. Overall, I'm excited to get knife #271 in magnacut. If you've seen the Dawson video on 3V and Magnacut is 2 times stronger then this knife can't be destroyed. Look up the CPM-3V FLEX TORTURE TEST just to get an idea of the toughness of CPM steel!
It came well sharpened which Dawson is known for. I'm a fan of premium fighter or Ka-bar variant knives so I'm glad to add the Dawson War Dog to my arsenal. My collection of higher quality Ka-bar variants is almost complete...

Love it

Been trying to get my hands on this for a while; finally got one. Typical Dawson quality, which is absolutely superb. I have a few knives from Dawson which are used for processing game, and they don’t disappoint. The wait and timing to get these unique knives can be frustrating, but absolutely worth it. This knife is ridiculously awesome; no regrets with the wait and the price.

Great handle!

This is a very well constructed knife and the handle is outstanding but the suppose "Apocalypse Black" is almost non existing. Very hard to see any apocalypse pattern on the blade. Plus I did not realize the blade was hollow grind. Would had prefer a flat grind. But still looks like it will last for many generations.
