It is a vanishing example of superior American workmanship!

Thank you.

Simply extraordinary. Amazing craftsmanship with attention to detail. More than I could ever ask for in a sword. Will definitely purchase again in the future.

Now, that's a knife!

Crocodile Dundee would be jealous of this Dawson Bowie. The blade is so long, that it could be considered a short sword. This Bowie is surprisingly light and well balanced, with great looks to match all around. Also, it has a thick and sturdy leather sheath. This is definitely a showpiece!

Love it!

It’s here! It’s gorgeous! I love it!

Thank you for all of your special assistance in getting this done.

A Work of Art

The Pendragon Short Sword is truly a case where function meets art. Remarkable craftsmanship, beautiful to admire yet extremely tough and durable.
My only negative would be with the leather sheath. While it compliments the beauty of the sword with quality craftsmanship and looks great with the sword, it is not very functional. If I needed to bring it with me to slay invading zombies, I would have to find another carrying option 😊.
A beautiful sword that is becoming one of my favorites.

What a beauty!

This is now the finest Bowie in my collection. The Dawson craftsmen created a splendid piece of cutlery. I was bit apprehensive at first re the combination of stag, green dyed walnut burl & mammoth ivory but it's so different from anything else in my collection it's grown on me. The blade is perfect. Perfect shape. Perfect grinds. Perfect fit to the guard.... The leather scabbard is a bit pedestrian for such a beautiful knife, however, it is very heavy duty and extreamly well made. As typical for Dawson products workmanship, shipping and communication is top notch. Thank you for opportunity for allowing me to obtain such a exceptional Bowie knife.
