Dawson Knives Big Bear Arizona Copper 3V Two-Tone Carbon Fiber Fixed Blade
The Dawson Big Bear blends the utilitarian design of the Huntsman with big chopper DNA resulting in a massive and capable cutting tool that cuts through camp chores with ease. Build shelter, butcher game and thrive in style with the Big Bear. Dawson uses American-made, CPM 3V powder metallurgy steel which offers exceptional toughness with edge holding up to three times longer than D2 and a clear Cerakote coating for corrosion resistance. This version comes with two-tone carbon fiber handle scales and an Arizona Copper finished blade.
Brand new, direct from Dawson Knives.
Blade: Made from tough, American CPM 3V the broad drop point blade has a high hollow grind and tip swedge for excellent slicing and piercing performance. The forward portion of the blade has a generous belly for skinning tasks enhanced by the upward canted angle of the blade. Jimping on the thumb scoop provides solid control during heavy use pairing with the integral guard for added safety. Arizona Copper is a proprietary finish that gives each blade a unique, copper like finish while also being surprisingly non-reflective for discreet use.
Handle: Thick, rounded two-tone carbon fiber scales come attached over blue fiber liners to the full tang for a rock solid handle. Milled with deep grooves and a finger choil the handles offer a secure grip with plenty of style. Flat scale sides prevent rolling and keep the carry profile slim while the generous handle size, bird's head pommel, guard and choil allow for multiple grip options for added versatility. Each knife is 100% hand made and includes a Certificate of Authenticity with spec sheet and serial number.
Sheath: Carries via a custom hybrid leather/Kydex sheath with multiple carry options.
CPM-3V: A high carbon alloy steel that is extremely tough and has enough chromium to have some corrosion resistance. Care and maintain is required. High toughness translates to a stable edge that can be ground thin for enhanced performance. 3V has good edge retention, approaching VG-10 and CPM-154, with more than 3x the toughness. Dawson's differential heat treatment gives a harder edge for performance and a softer spine for added for toughness and flexibility.
