Dawson Knives Javalina Arizona Copper 3V Blue/Black G10 Fixed Blade Hunter
While it may look wild to the eye, the harpoon-tip blade of the Dawson Javalina makes it a purpose built skinning knife that is ideal for hunting and well suited for a variety of outdoor tasks. Dawson utilizes 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 layered blue and black G10 handle scales and an Arizona Copper finished blade.
Brand new, direct from Dawson Knives, USA.
Blade: Made from tough, American CPM 3V the harpoon point skinner blade has a wide, robust tip that is wide enough to pinch grip for very fine work and allow for index placement for control in standard grip. The high hollow grind delivers razor like slicing performance while jimping on the integral guard and thumb ramp deliver traction in heavy use. 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, matte blasted G10 scales are attached with black stainless steel hardware over blue liners to the full tang for a rock solid handle. Blasted and milled with deep grooves, the contoured handle scales provide a secure and ergonomic grip. 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: is a high carbon alloy steel that extremely tough and has enough chromium to have some corrosion resistance. However, care is required to prevent corrosion. The edge can be ground thin as it is tough enough to support a fine edge. 3V delivers the highest level of toughness while maintaining good edge retention. Dawson's differential heat treatment gives a harder edge for performance and a softer spine for added for toughness and flexibility.
