Got to love great craftsmanship.

Superb Handyman

Received my Handyman in Magnacut the other day and was elated at the beautiful craftsmanship and scalpel like sharpness of the Magnacut.

Perfect grind lines and handle is so grippy and comfortable. This wont be my last blade from Dawson Knives as they are heriloom quality and designed with alot of care and small attention to detail.

Sheath was adjusted so that the clip was on the right side and it fits tucked safely in my pocket for the days work. Really excellent retention and no issues to report.

Customer service was more then helpful when i bad issues getting into my account to order but she fixed that promptly. A joy to work with.
Thank you all at Dawson Knives for a superb knife that will last the rest of my life. I feel like i have found my home haha. Happy Holidays to all!

A unique beauty of an EDC knife

I had looked over the Dawson Knives website several times and finally decided to buy the Handyman in MagnaCut with the Arizona finish and blue and black G10. I am very pleased with the knife. MagnaCut really is a superior steel in terms of all-around performance, really more of a tough tool steel with exceptional stain resistance. I like the way Dawson Knives has taken advantage of the properties of MagnaCut by using a concave grind with the blade making for a thin, "slicey" edge. The Arizona finish is really unique, as is the differential hardening of the blade to increase the toughness. Fit and finish are exceptional. I like the pocket sheath, though I think I am more likely to use a belt sheath and have ordered one of those. Great small EDC knife in terms of both looks and function.

Another Awesome Magnacut Blade!

Just got my Handyman Apocalypse Black and I absolutely love it. It goes great with my Mojave 7 Specter. The magnacut steel is amazingly tough and wicked sharp! I look forward to being able to find more of your blades in the future. Thanks for the incredible workmanship and detail in your knives.
