Dawson Knives Javalina Arizona Copper 3V Red/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 red and black G10 handle scales and an Arizona Copper finished blade.
Brand new, direct from Dawson Knives.
Blade: Made from tough, American CPM 3V the harpoon point skinner blade has a wide, robust tip with jimping paired with a generous index choil allowing for multiple grip options that offer exceptional control for fine work. The high hollow grind delivers razor like slicing performance while jimping on the integral guard and thumb ramp deliver traction in heavy use while jimping at the tip gives traction in fine work where the knife may be wet. 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 come attached to the full tang over red liners to the full tang for a rock solid handle. Blasted and milled with deep grooves the semi-contoured handle scales provide a secure and ergonomic grip with flat sides to prevent rolling and keep the carry profile slim. 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.
