I got myself my very first Barry Dawson blade within an auction that is online the makerвЂ™s web site back about 2003. IвЂ™d been a blade nut all my entire life, and also this had been my extremely custom that is first. We paid $180 I unboxed it I was in awe of the precise, elaborate grinds, and razor sharp edge for it(a steal), and when.
When you look at the years since I acquired my very first Dawson, BarryвЂ™s studio has exploded a lot and it is now a family that is full-blown with numerous Dawsons making knives under BarryвЂ™s specialist tutelage. Several old designs, like my aforementioned Japanese-style success blade, were discontinued, but Dawson has introduced lots of new models, one of them the Scout.
The Scout is an all-purpose, full-tang tactical/field blade that is lightweight, compact, and super tough. It isnвЂ™t a Busse-style chopper or a вЂњRamboвЂќ knife.
