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

The War Dog Knife

This knife is everything I hoped for! I have wanted one for some time now and I am glad I could snag one with the CPM MagnaCut steel. This knife is a great modern take on a historic knife. The balance is perfect and the blade came hair shaving sharp The sheath is really top notch as well.

All I can say. 12/10. You’ve earned a new follower.!!! I am a lefty. In the future it would be nice to have a lefty sheath option when buying.

War Dog -Limited Edition #40 - Iconic in Every Way

My 3rd Dawson Handmade in the USA… The War Dog is one for my Custom Wall Shadow Box… Designed to take my “War Dog” out for hunting trips to Montana & Wyoming- taking good care of it but using it on memory filled hunting adventures. The Dawson Family stays in the forefront of knife making - the War Dog with Magnacut Premium Steel shows how the Dawson Clan stays on top of all other knives out there - by being first in every aspect of design - made by hand - best materials and with USA PRIDE. I love my Dawson Knives & looking forward to getting the Mississippi Bowie … There is a Dawson Blade for everyone - another great attribute and another great reason to look no further than “Dawson Knives - Made 100% by hand in the Great U.S.A.”
