Re: A Tale of Two Hawkbills

Very interesting read. I have both the Byrd hawkbill as well as a Dragonfly salt with a hawkbill blade. Though I like both a lot, the Byrd does get carried more often. It's my yard knife and it really does excel at that.

Re: Byrd Hawkbill

Glad to see some more pictures here of the Byrd hawkbill. It still is my favourite yard workhorse. Lot sof fibrous materials so no plain edge knife comes close.

I thought it was the 'V' that was pronounced 'F', not the W oh well :)
You are correct.

I would assume that the W is pronounced as V as in German?
Well, no 😁

I love myself a good old Dragonfly, and a PE k390 hawkbill one would be the bomb!

Re: What did you use your Spyderco for last?

Before that it cut up a bunch of pumpkin flesh to go into the freezer. Cooked or raw? I just used my stainless Delica to cut open a pumpkin that I roasted whole so I could scoop out the goods and puree it for all kinds of good stuff! :) Raw. Used a Becker to get inside and to divide it into 8 piece...

Used the Para 3 LW to cut off the tops of the leaves on these leeks I harvested today. Before that it cut up a bunch of pumpkin flesh to go into the freezer.

Hi Vivi,

Nothing yet. As mentioned, I thought about a smaller Pattada, but the steel is more for Afi's, so we really would need an afi model.

Re: Byrd Hawkbill

Not really. It's really made to be used and it takes any job like a champion. It's inexpensive, well built, and if it breaks you can just get a new one without breaking the bank. I don't think I'll end up breaking it anytime soon though. Just a barebones tool that does its job very well. I respect i...

Re: Byrd Hawkbill

The value you get with the Byrd Hawkbill is truly amazing. It's become my go to gardening knife since I got it. It's absolutely superb with fibrous materials. I've long used a simple Opinel or SAK in the garden, and whereas they did do the trick and gave me great joy, the Hawkbill just came, saw an...
