Dozier made knives are always on back order and take a while to get. I believe this one took about six months. My other Dozier knives get quite a workout. The D2 is very tough and holds an edge quite well.That's probably why Dozier exclusively uses it. The professional guide sports a 4.75" blade and an OAL of 9.187" long. It is a hefty 0.187 thick, which is thick for a Dozier made knife. The wilderness sheath is a 40.00 option over the regular kydex sheath.
