No matter, the hawksbill is one of my faves as you know...BTW, is there a Doctor in this house? Where is Kurt?
My apologies for my absence on this thread up to this point. I was very much preoccupied last evening with a six year old and a copy of Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events. For those interested, it was well worth the watch, by the way.

I agree about the more relaxed curve completely. Too severe and the curve becomes less useable for some purposes. CE would also be a nice option.
God bless ya Joe...keep pushing!
He will, Chad. He will.
As will I.
My love of hawkbilled blades is no secret; I consider this particular blade design to be one of the most useful as both a combative blade, as well as one that is perfect as a rescue blade that might need deploying in short order with less risk of inadvertent injury.
To avoid the stigma attached to a purely MBC-blade design, why not market a new 3.5" hawkbill as a Search/Rescue knife? This blade design does lend itself to such things wonderfully and should lessen the likelihood of any possible negative criticism by law enforcement should it be necessary to use it for self-defense.
To be completely fair, I think this might be the best approach for such a new knife for maximum sale potential.
