Description: Knife legend Bob Loveless designed the "Dixon Fighter" knife. At maximum length it is one serious pig-sticker; this one is a bit shorter and more the length appropriate for most combat users. This specific knife feels great in the hand. The swage is about as sharp as an axe blade (too sharp and you get a weak tip), which means that for law enforcement purposes this will likely be regarded as a dagger-style weapon.
Böhler-Uddeholm D2 Carbon Tool Steel is recognized by many top knife makers as the best carbon steel for knives. The blade of this Dixon Fighter is gloss finish Böhler-Uddeholm D2 Carbon Tool Steel, professionally tempered to HRC 58. It is extremely difficult to put a true mirror finish on D2 steel. Forge Master K. Ali can do it, but it takes a lot more work and would force us to charge a higher price. The finish on this knife is see-yourself glossy. It differs from a true mirror finish in that you can see background polish lines. The hilt is made of AISI 304 stainless steel, which is the best steel for knife fittings but so difficult to work with only a few top-end custom knife makers are willing to use it. The blade has a gentle distal taper offsetting the quite visibly tapered tang.
The instant knife offers a truly famous design, and an excellent balance of quality and value.
