For the past several years, Bob Dozier has been building fighters inspired by knives used by our troups during World War II. He will always add his own variations to those knives, making a knife that is truly his own design with just an influence from the original WWII knife. The first of these knives was his 1943 Fighter which we first offered to our customers in 2007. The second was the 1942 Commando which we first offered in 2015.

Bob has done it again with his 1941 WWII Inspired Fighter. Stacked leather handles were common during that time so Bob has developed a way to treat the leather washers to assure that they do not shrink, so the handle will retain its integrity over many years of use. He has added two wide green G-10 spacers with thin layers of brass and red fiber as accents and to separate the brass double hilt and the leather. The aluminum butt cap reflects Bob's sense of utility and design. The 6-1/8" swedged clip point blade is satin finished D2 with the Dozier heat treat at 60-61 Rc. Measures 11-1/4" tip to butt. Weighs 9.5 oz.

The quality of the Dozier built leather sheath is miles beyond what would have been available to our troops during WWII. As a matter of fact, the quality and durability of Bob's leather sheaths is beyond almost any knife sheath you will find in today's market. Knife and sheath both designed by Bob and made by him in his shop in St. Paul, Arkansas.

Dozier Knives

Bob Dozier has been a big name in handmade knives since the 1960's. He is an expert in making knives with state of the art fit and finish at a cost of several hundred dollars each. What he really prefers, though, is making knives like you see here with the very best materials, fitted perfectly, and with a working finish. This allows him to put the knives in your hands at prices that a working man can afford.
