This design is over 100 years old ~ the knowledge and skill to produce this version has been fifty years in the making! Bob and I took more than a year to finalize this design. We started with the original design and combined that with Bob’s style and knowledge to bring it to market.
Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a Dealer for Bob Dozier
~ Direct from the Maker ~
Very Few of these knives have been made to date and this is the First One for 2020
The original design of this knife was created by George W. Sears, more famously known by his Indian/Pen name of Nessmuk. This knife adds all the features of Bob’s upscale Classic line and provides a proven and unique blade shape in Bob’s legendary 3/16″ thick D2 steel.
This knife is one of a RARE FEW Nessmuks to be marked with Bob’s St Paul, AR Maker’s Mark
This unique Skinning blade is 1 1/8″ wide with a Custom Swedge near the tip, just like the Original Design.
In Bob’s Classic line, the hidden tang is a full one-half inch wide and is completely heat-treated to gain the maximum properties that can be had from the steel. A rectangular slot is machined in the handle to perfectly fit the tang. This eliminates the need to fill up the extra space with epoxy. Then just the necessary amount of epoxy, along with a brass nut secure the handle for a Lifetime of hard use.
This knife has a handle of tough Natural Canvas Micarta (which has a nice swell and Birds Beak style Butt) with Brass and Burgandy G-10 Spacers. The Brass Guard is Silver Soldered so no moisture has access to inside the handle.
