Order Details

Designed by Bob Dozier

To most of the people reading this Bob Dozier's knives speak for themselves. The D2 high-carbon, high-chrome tool steel, hardened to 60-62 Rockwell, really holds an edge and the Dozier Kydex® sheaths that are molded to each knife hold the knife until the owner removes it with the magic release that Bob has designed into it. The flawless fitting of the handle material, in this case a yellow Micarta®, and the no frills finish that allows a handmade knife to be sold at prices that might grace many of today's production knives, make this a very attractive knife from many points of view. These knives can be ordered with left handed sheaths.

Bob's concept of a personal knife is a knife that can be carried day in and day out; a knife that is never in the way but is always instantly available. 2-7/8" blade, 6-3/4" overall length. Horizontal black Kydex® sheath. Weighs 4.4 oz.

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

Dozier Arkansas Made

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.
