Stunning and Exceptionally Well-Made Knife

The Chief is beyond my expectations ! The craftsmanship and artistry is beautiful. This is my first Dawson knife ... took me months to be able to purchase one that was available ... absolutely worth the wait. I will be checking back frequently as there are other styles I hope come available in the very near future. Thank you and GOD Bless !

NEW Chief | CPM MagnaCut Stainless Steel | Arizona Copper Finish

My 2nd Dawson Knife, what is most impressive is the finish - Amazing! I love it, idk what you do to get that but it's Awesome! The style of the knife, the sharpness and overall esthetics/looks is one of a kind. Dawson knife inc. makes some of the finest knives avalible and the price for a custom knife. I know, I know bluh bluh, when you think about each knife they make it's done by one person, and essentially no two knives are exactly the same. I have medium size hands and this knife fits well in my hand, when I grab it out of the sheath my fore finger goes perfectly in position for a solid grasp. I have many knives, and this one adds to my collection not only as a collection but an EDC. It's perfect blade length, not the Rambo survival combo Bowie/Machette but a nice carry knife that can be used for your everyday use or something for protection if so needed. I support Dawson knives for their Belief in our God, Country and Family Values along with 3 Generations of knife makers. Also the customer service is beyond approach, everytime I have reached out to them Kika has always returned my email with answers. Usually the same day and I have had alot of communications with them. Thank you Kika! And the whole Crew at Dawson Knives!

Uncommon Quality

I received the Dawson CPM MagnaCut New Chief today. The knife is nearly stunning in the quality of its manufacture. Everything works together and taken as a whole, this knife is a family heirloom. My son will be presented with this knife when he graduates from USAF Special Forces Training in June. My wife and I are extremely proud of his accomplishment, and we are honored to be able to present him with his new Dawson Chief as a suitable reminder of it. Thank you, Dawson Family, for this unique and robust piece of craftsmanship, it is more than I'd hope for.

Really like the deeper index finger notch

I've been waiting for the MagnaCut in the Specter Finish, but had to go with the Chief with the Arizona Copper. The knife seems to give me greater control over the Raider 5 due to the opposing thumb and forefinger pressure. The Raider 5 comes out of the sheath cleaner than the Chief, and I find that putting it on the belt horizontally keeps it out of the way on the lower back. Putting it back necessitates a greater attention due to location, Really excited to add the Chief to my collection!
