Brand new, direct from Dawson Knives.
Blade: With a sweeping belly and high hollow grind the clip point blade has great slicing performance and plenty of durability from the tough, American CPM 3V construction. The tip has solid durability while being fine enough for detail work and piercing. Jimping on the spine and a generous choil deliver excellent control during 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: Attached to the full tang over fiber liners the contoured, and blasted G10 scales deliver a rock solid handle. The blasted finish and milled grooves deliver plenty of traction, while the pommel end has a flared “fishtail” design that rests perfectly on the pinky for secure comfort in heavy use. Each knife is 100% hand made and includes a Certificate of Authenticity with spec sheet and serial number.
Sheath: Carries via a hybrid leather/Kydex sheath with metal pocket clip.
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.
