Bob Dozier has been a big name in handmade knives since the 1960's. He is an expert in making knives with state of the art fit and finish at a cost of several hundred dollars each. What he really prefers, though, is making knives like you see here with the very best materials, fitted perfectly, and with a working finish. This allows him to put the knives in your hands at prices that a working man can afford.

Since Bob built his own shop in St. Paul, Arkansas, his personal focus has been primarily on folders and narrow tang hunting knives. It took him quite a bit of time to get his shop completed and there was a spell when we were unable to get knives for our customers that he made personally (the Arkansas Made Dozier has continued to be available as usual).

Dozier Buffalo River Hunter

Dozier Buffalo River Hunter

The Dozier Buffalo River Hunter was introduced late in 2005. It is a drop point hunter that was designed for A. G. Russell customers. At the time it was introduced, Desert Ironwood was plentiful. It is a wonderful handle material, but has become increasingly hard to find forcing Bob to look for other suitable handle material. He has found a source of Cocobolo that has as much striking contrast in grain, perhaps more, as the finest Desert Ironwood. Buffalo Hunters are now available with Cocolobo and Green Linen Micarta®. Like all of Bob's standard hollow ground hunting knives, these are hand ground in Bob's shop on grinders designed and built by him.

Bob Dozier has used the classic Springfield as inspiration for the first in what he plans to be a series of knives based on WWII fighting knives. In 2007, he produced about 65 of the Dozier 1943 Fighter and A. G. Russell™ knives sold nearly all of those. After producing those knives, Bob moved on to other demands on his time and set the pattern, and the project, aside.
