Extraordinarily beautiful

I purchased the Explorer Elite with the copper finish and the carbon fiber scales. It’s an extraordinarily beautiful knife, with a solid feel in the hand. I will be taking it with me to the Darien jungle this April and expect it will be a valued companion.

I just received my second knife from Dawson. I liked it even more than the first one! It is the new Explorer Elite with the Apocalypse Black Finish. What a beautiful knife and extremely sharp. I love it and can't wait to purchase my next American made Dawson knife! I'm officially hooked on Dawson knives.
