Re: How About A High Caliber Hawkbill?

I could go for a cru-carta Superhawk :) . I've only ever user hawkbills with a PE never a SE. Interesting? Because at least 90% to 95% of the people I talk to like Hawkbills in SE far more than they do in PE. But you must use it for cutting chores where PE has advantages? If you could be so kind to...

Re: H-1 Questions

Hi Cambertree, Yes, I’ve been very impressed by the Hawkbill Byrd... so much so, that I just ordered the orange Cara Cara 2 rescue knife. So I’m going to be joining Skeeg11 and The Meat Man in owning both of those. Now if only we could get a "Byrdhawk" release, I'd be all set. ;) It's been interesti...

H-1 Questions

I'm still learning about Spyderco (and knives in general). Since I work outside, and typically don't wash tools until the end of the day, the whole Salt line is attractive. In learning about it, I've come up with a couple of questions: 1) I know that serrated H-1 is work-hardened and has especially ...

Re: Considering Hawkbill for Gardening (sharpening question)

Thanks Cambertree and everyone, for all the very helpful advice... So I ended up buying the Byrd FRN Hawbill.  I like it, especially the barely-noticeable weight in pocket.  It's a real pleasure to use something that is so thoughtfully designed.  Our standard harvest knife has a 3.25'' cutting edge...

Re: Considering Hawkbill for Gardening (sharpening question)

A couple of days ago while I was mowing the lawn, I noticed that my hedges needed a bit of a trim. I didn’t have a battery charged for my hedge-trimmer, so I just used my Tasman Salt. It was great opportunity to practice snap-cuts with my left hand, and the Tasman made quick work of the hedges. May...

Re: Considering Hawkbill for Gardening (sharpening question)

Wow, thank you to everyone for all the welcoming and helpful replies! I'm willing to have another go at sharpening, but a serrated hawkbill is daunting. Does the sharpmaker DVD include this style blade? As suggested, we would definitely use it on hoes, shears and other equipment as well. The Spyderh...

Considering Hawkbill for Gardening (sharpening question)

Hi everyone, I'm considering the Tasman Salt Hawkbill for gardening (clearing weeds, harvesting and cutting line/zip ties). I believe that's the biggest Spyderco hawkbill available. The H1 is nice, since it will spend a lot of time wet (and possibly not cleaned until the end of the day). The bright ...
