Bob Dozier Custom Slipjoint Folding Knife 3.45" D2 Spear Point Blade, Westinghouse Micarta Handles with Stone Shields
DOZCSJD2: Custom Slipjoint Folding Knife - Westinghouse Micarta
Are you a seasoned hunter or sportsman in need of a knife that is dependable in any situation? Bob Dozier designs with experience to these needs and produces a knife that helps you to achieve your personal best.
His unique design fits your hand for hours of comfortable use through durable Micarta handles that are custom finished for each knife. A Dozier knife is also well balanced to put the cutting power where it's needed.
The steel Bob uses is D2, which is one of the most outstanding knife steels available today. It is a high carbon, high chrome tool steel which is often used for the steel cutting dies in tool and die shops. With 1.5% Carbon, 1% Molybdenum, 12% Chrome, and 1% Vanadium, this air-hardening steel (at 60-61HRC) takes a razor edge, and holds it!
Bob Dozier guarantees his knives for life. They are designed for a specific purpose. Should a knife fail after purchase by the original user, due to faulty workmanship or materials, such defects will be made good, free of cost.
A knife is first a tool; which is why "Built For Life" accurately portrays Bob Dozier's philosophy for the design of his knives. Bob began making his knives as a valuable tool for the hunter. More than 30 years later, he is a master in the art of handmade knife making. The tool he provides hasn't changed in application, but the style of his knives have matured to their own unique elegance. On blade grinding, Bob states, "With few exceptions, I grind blades to have thin edges and thin points. The number one function of a knife is to cut. A thicker edge will never cut or sharpen as well as a thin one. A knife is purchased for a cutting tool, not a pry bar."
