DSARADIDFMASADA: Model 1 - Arad, Masada IDF Logo
Dustar
 
The Dustar Model 1 - Arad is the first-ever fixed-blade, heavy duty, all purpose utility/field/combat knife conceived, designed, tested, perfected and manufactured entirely in Israel.The knife was manufactured entirely by CNC technology.

Based on a classic design on the one hand and on extensive practical combat and outdoors experience on the other hand, this premium quality knife is made from the best materials and manufactured to the most demanding standards in the metal processing industry. Features a sharpened top edge.

The knife was designed by Alex Shamgar, a renowned Israeli custom knife designer and maker; and manufactured by Sherutay Erozia, an ISO 9001:2000 certified manufacturer of molds and dies since 1984.

The Blade

The 7" blade of this superb knife is made of D2 steel (RC 56-57 hardness), one of the toughest, best steels known to the tools industry.

The blade was subject to extreme durability tests, normally not expected during even a lifetime of service. These included hard blows against a D2 block, which was consequently deeply marked, but left no scratch on the blade.

The Handle

The handle of the Dustar Model 1 - Arad is made of fiberglass reinforced nylon - the apex of strength, durability, and practicality.

The handle is attached the blade by two hardened steel pins that would not loosen even under the most demanding conditions.

Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material
I give her a C+.
The balance, weight distribution, blade sharpness, and ruggedness are beyond reproach. The fit and finish of the sum parts are outstanding. The handle is NOT one size fits most. It's slippery under moderate pressure, and I cannot find a comfortable position. The sheath is not worthy of a $260 dollar knife. It's sloppy and weak. I'm having a professional custom fit a handle from G10 scales. This FRN is very tough but does not provide a reliable hold/grip. Be VERY careful ad the knife slips out of the sheath quickly when inverted. I would 100% recommend wearing Class 5 cut gloves. I would not purchase it again for any reason.

Beautiful & Deadly
Pleasantly surprised by the look, weight & feel. Despite its size this knife isn't unbalanced and is very comfortable to handle. Every knife is numbered making it a truly unique specimen to add to a collection. The IDF stamp attests to the ruggedness of the weapon. Extremely pleased!

DUSTAR IDF MAZADA
I use this knife daily. It is well balanced, holds an edge and is the perfect combat or tactical blade. It's beautifully crafted and every collect should own one. The IDF logo looks great.
