Not much needs to be said about this beautiful knife.
MAGNACUT made by Dawson.....
I own several Dawson knives and the Sheperd is the most rugged. The blade’s spine is thicker than my Huntsman, but the belly of the blade is hollow ground to a nice geometry for maintaining a razor edge. This knife is sturdy and strong. Craftsmanship is excellent and the handle fits a larger hand with plenty of room for gripping. I’m an outdoorsman and I’m always searching for the perfect knife. You cannot go wrong with a Dawson knife and the Sheperd is a great choice if you can only have one woods knife. All my Dawson knives are top quality and the customer service is excellent.
