Dawson knives

Shop Dawson Knives which is a family owned company in Arizona that specializes in crafting handmade knives for real-world users. Dawson Knives are durable fixed blade knives which started since 1973 founded by Barry Dawson, who was served in US Army during Vietnam War. He didn’t have the funds nor is the technical know-how of knife making but with passion to make perfect tactical, hunting knives is his passion. With this goal in his mind and passion in his heart, he started making knives and put Micarta handles to them.

Dawson Knives are custom fixed blades, EDC pocket knives, hunting knives, bushcraft knives, bowies and battle ready swords, all 100% made in the USA. People love Dawson Knives and they are in all gun shows across USA one after another which set the stage and then Lynn Dawson a niece of Barry Dawson joined him.

Lynn Dawson really took the art and design of Dawson Knives to next level. Previously Dawson Knives was making utilitarian knives only but when Lynn joined, she came with beautiful file works, those nice lines and pal swells and everything that really showcased Lynn’s side of creativity and also brought the female aspect to Dawson Knives which was previously missing.

Are Dawson Knives any good?

Yes, Dawson Knives are custom made premium knives. All materials used in Dawson blades, handles and in Swords are made in USA and each blade is hand crafted from start to finish in their workshop. The Blades of Dawson knives are made with CPM 3V and 80CRV2 having G 10 handles mostly but they do have few models with Micarta or Carbon fiber handles. Given it’s a family owned business and now it’s their third generation in knife making, yet they are skilled and once their knives are done they have a custom sheath for each knife they make.

Blade finish of Dawson Knives

All Dawson Knives blades, swords have unique blade finish called as Hamon, Arizona Copper finish or Specter finish all having Cerakote. As, Clear Cerakote is a durable, oven-hardened clear ceramic coating which is the top layer of all blades to  protect Dawson blades from corrosion and also maintain the unique good looks of the finish underneath.

What is a Hamon finish?

A Hamon is the unique visual “hard line” typically associated with Japanese heat-treat techniques that date back over 1,000 years. Dawson Knives have created a sleek, modern version of the traditional Hamon and its dual hardness’s in both their Arizona Copper and Specter finishes.

What is Arizona Copper finish?

Firstly, it’s not a painted at all. Dawson Knives have developed their own Arizona Copper finish over months of research and experimentation with their heat-treat process. The color and texture of the raw steel you see is itself. Each is completely unique, requiring a significant amount of skill and time to achieve.

What is a Specter finish?

Again, it’s not sprayed nor painted. As, some knife makers try to imitate the look of a Hamon using various methods, Specter is a genuine Hamon – a visual effect caused by our specialized heat-treat. It goes all the way through the steel.
