Quick Overview

I get asked a lot about which is my favorite Dozier and this is it - the K-17 White River skinner, as fine a hide-remover as I have used. It fits my hand and peels hide like a dream. With a 3 3/4" blade and 8" overall, it's perfectly sized for medium North American game animals...


I get asked a lot about which is my favorite Dozier and this is it - the K-17 White River skinner, as fine a hide-remover as I have used. It fits my hand and peels hide like a dream. With a 3 3/4" blade and 8" overall, it's perfectly sized for the deer we see here in central Mississippi. But what it has in common with all Dozier knives (other than the tasteful, understated lines of Bob's "work all day" handle shapes, gloriously invisible once you are using them) is D2 semi-stainless steel with his proprietary heat-treat. I recently had a customer send this unsolicited comment about his Dozier Delta Traveler, featuring the same steel:

"I continue to be very pleased with this knife! It carries effortlessly, handles great, and the D2 really holds an edge. Yesterday we installed 18 stall mats in the run-in side of our horse barn. Eight of them required trimming.  This added up to over 44 linear feet of cut thru 3/4" recycled rubber!  With a shot of WD40 for lube my DT did the job with little effort and, when it was over, would still slice a piece of paper with ease! A quick brush-up with my Lansky put it back to shaving sharp! Can't ask anymore than that!"

Mint, just in from the shop. Natural tan micarta scales and a right hand horizontal kydex thumb-break sheath which the Dozier shop will swap that to a lefty version for the cost of the postage. Note the stout full-tang construction, too! Every time I take one of these to camp someone wants to buy it from me still bloody, and that's the best recommendation there is.
