Your picture just caused me to purchase a Byrd Hawkbill, thanks!
I've never tried anything from the Byrd line or a hawkbill, and the 8cr is not a problem in a SE blade...the $30 just jumped right out of my account, LOL!
Byrd knives are great, especially the serrated models...for some reason the byrd serrations are ground more rounded and shallow, which means less snagging and better cutting. I preferred it even to the Tasman Salt:
This Hawkbill has been used and carried a lot and it's just a super solid little knife. Despite what many people think, a hawkbill blade makes a terrific EDC. I'll be looking forward to seeing what you think of it!
I just opened this up, and first impressions are fantastic. Very well done budget blade, solid lock up with no play, blade drops when mid-lock is depressed, and I do like how the serrations are less aggressive than the Golden SE's. I don't know why, but I'm surprised, haha! I will have no problem recommending Byrd as a budget option in the future and I look forward to getting some work out of this 8cr Hawkbill.
I'm going to cross-post this over in the Byrd forum.
