Order Details

Bob Dozier's Professional Guide's Knife was developed for the professional packer or guide who works in remote areas and does not want to carry more than one knife. This knife is large enough to do the whole job on any big game animal as well as camp chores. It will also have a good edge when other knives have become dull. Using his standard D2 at 60+ Rc, which he heat treats in his own shop to assure quality control, Bob has produced a man sized knife. Both the blade and the handle are larger than most of his knives. This knife is perfectly suited to the man with large hands, or regular hands, with big jobs to do.

The 4-3/4" clip point blade of 3/16" D2 hardened to 60-61 Rc. Black Micarta® handle scales and aircraft alloy pins and lanyard hole liner. Measures 9-3/16" tip to butt and weighs 6.9 oz. Available with Bob's Wilderness sheath with a nylon webbing belt loop.

If a Dozier knife is not in stock when you order, delivery typically takes 3 to 4 months.

Arkansas Made Dozier

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.

I just received my Dozier Professional Guides Knife. I am very happy with both the knife & how quickly it was delivered.

This is my second Dozier knife. I have a Canoe I bought directly from Bob in Atlanta a few years ago. I have knives from Jon Graham, Mike McRae, Newt Livesay, as well as knives from TOPS, Benchmade, CRKT, More, & that company that A.G. doesn't like, & I have to say that if anybody makes a better outdoorsman's knife than Bob I am unaware of it.
