Order Details

Periodically, either Bob or Daniel Crotts designs a new knife for Dozier Arkansas Made. The EVO is such a design created by Daniel. There are the basic details you will find in other Dozier Arkansas Made knives, and still the EVO has a distinctively different look, in particular the shape of the handle at the butt and the angle of the handle scales at the ricasso. The blade steel is the same D2 with the Dozier heat-treat that is used in all the others, the guard is integral and the lines are clean and functional.

The 3-3⁄4" drop point blade is D2 at 60-61 Rc. The handle scales are Desert Ironwood. Measures 8-1⁄4" overall. Weighs 5.1 oz., 6.5 oz in the horizontal Kydex® sheath. Made in Springdale, Arkansas.

Dozier Knives

Bob Dozier made his first knives when he was only twelve or thirteen years old. He told me the other day that after those few knives, he did not make another until he was about twenty-three and working as a rough neck in the oil fields in Louisiana. He talked about that first simple knife and then told a story about a co-worker asking to come to watch him make knives. Bob had made several knives by then and had created a small rough shop. He said the man stayed and watched until the knife was finished which took most of the day. When it was finished, he asked to look at it. After handling it for a while, he asked Bob how much he wanted for it. Without giving it any thought, Bob says he said $12.50. The man pulled out twelve one dollar bills and two quarters, laid them on the bench, got in his truck and left. Bob went in the house and told his wife he had just sold a knife which took him most of the day to make for $12.50. But, he told me, at that moment he knew he was going to be a knifemaker. That was about 1963.

If you had the opportunity to look through Bob’s collection of his old knives, you would find that he has made many different kinds of knives; hunters, Bowies and fighters, and more recently folders. You can definitely see a relationship between a pair of fighting knives he made in those early years and the practical, utilitarian fighters that began to appear from handmade knifemakers and knife manufactures from the late 1960s and became tremendously popular during the Viet Nam War era. These knives used to be called fighting knives. Today they are called Tactical Knives.
