Second!

The BEST rating is repeat business, this is my 2nd Dawson. I like it more than my first!(Explorer Elite). It is Beautiful, and feels great in my hand, and knowing that the metal is the best there is gives me confidence that this knife will handle anything I throw at it!

Great knife with one exception

The knife is of excellent quality. There is one issue however. The blade handle only sticks out from the sheath 2 and 5/8 inches. That is not enough handle to get a good grip when removing it from the sheath.

Beyond Expectations

This is the third knife I’ve ordered from Dawson Knives. Always delighted at the prompt shipping and moreover the exceptional quality, beauty and sharpness of their products. To be redundant, I’m very happy to have been exposed to Dawson Knives through Mike Adams, The Health Ranger. Keep up the outstanding work and God Bless.!

Great Knife

This was my first purchase of a Dawson knife and I couldn't be happier. I was first introduced to Dawson knives by Mike Adams the Health Ranger of his podcast, so I decided to give them a try. This is the sharpest, most durable knife I have ever owned, and I will most likely buy others down the road. Thank you for such a wonderful knife. George McLaren
