• Kershaw Knives will sponsor the 16-year-old Rimfire World Champ and 3 Gun Nation competitor in 2017
TUALATIN, OREGON — Kershaw Knives supports a wide variety of outdoor activities its fans are involved in—from hiking and camping to skateboarding and motorcycling to competitive shooting.
For 2017, Kershaw is proud to welcome Cheyenne Dalton to Team Kershaw. Cheyenne is a rising junior shooter who competes in the Rimfire Challenge, 3-Gun Nation events, as well as United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) matches.
Dalton started shooting competitively in 2014 and won her first Limited Rimfire World Championship that year. 2015 brought several state Rimfire titles and a gold medal at the Wyoming State Games for Rimfire. In 2016, she started shooting 3 Gun events and won additional Rimfire titles including her Second Limited Rimfire World Championship.
"Cheyenne is an outstanding young woman in every way," said Kershaw Marketing Manager Susan Dundas. "After meeting her, we were very impressed, not only with her skills as a competitive shooter, but with everything she's been able to accomplish in her young life. We're excited to have her on Team Kershaw representing our brand."
Dalton loves to introduce new shooters—especially juniors—to the sport she loves. When she's not at the range she enjoys traveling and playing festivals with her bluegrass band That Dalton Gang. She plays violin, mandolin, and sings lead vocals. Cheyenne has been playing music since the age of four.
Cheyenne will carry and use a variety of Kershaw products and share her experiences with her fans and followers.
