DUSTAR Knives Model 1 Arad Fixed Blade Knife (7" Bead Blast)

The DUSTAR Model 1 Arad is a classic design with a clip point style blade and guard. The D2 tool steel blade is bead blasted and has a false back edge and brass guard. The tough FRN handle is attached by two hardened steel pins that will not loosen even under the most demanding conditions. The Model 1 Arad includes a leather sheath.

The Model 1 Arad is the first-ever fixed-blade, heavy duty, all purpose utility/field/combat knife conceived, designed, tested, perfected and manufactured entirely in Israel. This knife was designed by Alex Shamgar, a renowned Israeli custom knife designer and maker; and manufactured by Sherutay Erozia, an ISO 9001:2000 certified manufacturer of molds and dies since 1984. The knife was manufactured entirely by CNC technology.

Customer Reviews

Israeli functionality at its best.
Craig Z. on Jan 19, 2023

This is a big, beefy knife, as expected. Everything about it screams hard use. This is a no-frills knife. The sheath is super-basic with no retention. Unfortunately, the one I received did not have the "Made in Israel" stamp.
