The Apache Dawn Rockies Edition is a classic design, but with updated features. Weighing in at just under one pound, this knife has the heft, speed, and length needed to be an excellent all around combat/field knife.
As a field knife, the Apache Dawn is more than capable. The blade is long enough to handle many heavy tasks, but it also has a finger choil so the user can choke up for more controlled cutting. It has a nice belly to the tip, which is great for skinning game. This knife is ready to perform a variety of cutting tasks.
As a combat knife, the Apache Dawn really excels. With the harpoon-style tip and the thin swedge, the spine pushes the blade down as it enters its target, making a wider cut and providing good penetration. The black G10 handles with Rocky Mountain Tread and pronounced finger guard give a solid grip, especially when it’s most crucial.
No matter what the use, the Apache Dawn Rockies Edition is ready for duty.
