Please be patient with us as we rebuild our website, keeping in mind that what we at Dunn Knives normally do is build knives, not websites. We appreciate your patience and hope to have a new site completed shortly with all our knives pictured and available for purchase.
In the meantime, feel free to call Tess or Steve at 800-245-6483 during normal business hours and we will answer any questions you may have. Also, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Yes, we are the Dunn Knives that used to be located in Rossville, KS. We made the move to Florida in August of 2009. Why? Think about winter in Kansas versus winter in Florida. 'Nuff said?
Welcome to the Dunn Knives website. On these pages you will see all the models of knives we make ourselves in our Florida location. Please take time to look at each of our knives and read the descriptions.
One of the questions we are asked most frequently is about the kind of steel we use. We are currently using S30V on all of our blades. This powdered-metal tool steel has a high-carbon, high-vanadium content, yet also contains enough chromium to easily be classified as stainless. We feel this steel offers "the best of both worlds" - a carbon-based stainless blades. Niagra Specialty Metals (an American-made steel) rolls the steel for us. We buy it by the sheet, Steve does the heat-treating of our blades himself and the final hardness of the steel is 59-60 on the Rockwell C scale. We are confident you'll find this steel holds an edge longer than almost anything else available, yet allows most people the ability to sharpen/resharpen blades themselves.
The information contained on the pages here gives suggestions about which tasks we and our clients feel are best suited to each model/style. For example, if you are looking for a deer knife to skin and field dress, our most popular blade is the Small Skinner. For more detailed work, such as caping an animal, or skinning smaller animals like raccoon, fox, coyote, muskrats, or mink, we would recommend the Small Game & Bird or the Minker. Of course, which knife you select depends on your own preference.
Please note - Due to recent shows we've attended, we are extremely low on the number of knives available with Sambar Stag. I'd suggest you contact us via email or by calling 800-245-6483 before placing an online order.
