Excellent Craftsmanship

Well made and very balanced knife. Not as sharp as I would of expected. A few minutes on my ceramic stone and it shaves!

Forester magnacut

Superb quality in a knife. The copper finish is super nice. Handle shape is great. My first Dawson blade. I’ll be back….

Thanks Mike Adams!

I often scratch a knife along my thumb nail to gauge its sharpness. I laid this blade on my thumb nail and it wouldn't move! The Forrester is the sharpest knife I have ever owned. Oh and today is my birthday... I never thought I would get this far (neither did my mom, God rest her soul) I'm old enough to know a sharp blade when I test one (i"m seventy four today). I showed it to my neighbor who is a self-proclaimed knife guy. He unknowingly cut himself with it.

Incredible craftsmanship

I recently purchased the Forester for the upcoming hunting season. I had been researching different knife styles, steels, and handle materials for months to find the right fit for our wet climate in the PNW. I could not be happier to have come across Dawson Knives. The Forester feels incredible in the hand, the G10 handle is worked beautifully for a really unique look, and the specter finish on the blade adds quite the aesthetic. This will absolutely become my go to field knife. They also have an awesome t-shirt if you want to show some love around town. I can’t recommend these guys enough!
