Hi Stanolszews,

Welcome to our forum.

H1 steel is not available Japan. I'll watch interest in a Finch with a clip. We're working with a couple of makers to see if hey can manage a Compression Lock.

Hi Conner,

Yes, imported steels.

Hi Born,

We're working on it. we'll see.

Thanks Sal!

Hi Knivesandbooks, The testing that we've done, which is minimal, but showed that the market doesn't seem to be interested in the better steels and higher costs. We'll continue to try to find what will work. A second maker in China has agreed to try the better steels. sal Sal, do you mean better as...

Re: A Tale of Two Hawkbills

Great to hear your thoughts on the two models! :) I've been very tempted by the Dragonfly HB. But, I've been more than pleased with the Byrd. I did a blade swap with a titanium Meadowlark and can't complain. Mine does have a proud lock bar to the back spacer, though. https://i.imgur.com/H3RTl9a.jpg...

Re: A Tale of Two Hawkbills

That Matriarch my wife got me is pretty cool, but not totally practical/edc. Really enjoy the cutting power of it though... you're tempting me with this one Connor! Heck, I've paid more for pocket clips than the price of this knife haha! Yes there really is no reason not to pick one up. ;) The firs...

I highly recommend picking one up. Byrd knives are fun to buy because we are so used to paying $100+ for knives. :p ;)
I have $24.37 in ebay bucks that expire end of the month...for less than $2 I don't think I can pass :D
There you go! Basically a free knife! ;)

Cool write up, Connor! Thanks for taking the time to share. :cool: Maybe one day I’ll get over China stamped on the blade and try a Byrd myself but, don’t hold your breath, ay. ;) Ah, hahaha, ah, hahaha. ah, hahaha! :) I really think you'd like them. They're really nice knives and you could always ...

Re: A Tale of Two Hawkbills

I actually prefer my SS SE Harpy over the Tasman. The blade is slightly shorter and thicker than the Tasman’s, with a more robust tip. I’ve used it for some rougher ( but not abusive!) cutting chores that, if I had subjected my Tasman to them, would probably have broken the Tasman’s tip off. Jim Ye...

Re: A Tale of Two Hawkbills

I have the same feelings regarding the tip of the Tasman for EDC use and it's one of the reasons I much prefer the Lil Matriarch as an EDC hawkbill alternative. https://i.imgur.com/ueQwxCp.jpg ...And WOW for $26 the Byrd looks like a real winner! Thanks for sharing. I highly recommend picking one u...

If I were to do this write up the title would be "The Tale of 22 Hawkbills". Actually I have had more than that over the years but I think that's close to what I have in my footlocker now as we speak. Even though I have what some might perceive as an unhealthy obsession for the Spyderhawk model I s...

Re: A Tale of Two Hawkbills

Thank you everyone! Glad you found it interesting. :) Yes I really tried to like the Tasman more, especially having paid triple the price for it, but I just kept coming back to the byrd. It really is a steal for $26. I still like the Tasman and of course in its role as a water knife it'll definitely...

A Tale of Two Hawkbills

Lately I've been experimenting with hawkbills as EDC folders. My introduction to this blade shape was through the byrd Hawkbill. I was very favorably impressed with the quality of the knife. It was solid, strong, sharp. The 8Cr13MoV steel held its edge surprisingly well and was a breeze to get back ...

Damasteel Military with real stag scales and nickel silver inlays and clip with Spyderco 2020 engraved in the inlay.
I'd go for that. :cool:

Pretty much anything Damasteel will get my support.

Re: Forum Knife 2020 - No Holds Barred!!!

No holds barred eh?

Then give me a Damasteel bladed drop point UKPK with steel liners and contoured polished black Micarta with a small oval silver inlay in the middle of the handle with "Spyderco Forum" engraved along the top with "2020" in larger font beneath.
