Tasman Salt SE just arrived.
Nothing but SE hawkbill carry so far this year.
Nice! Have you had a chance to use it?
Yeah I cut some slices of cheese at break time. I've found that a hawkbill blade shape is the best when it comes to pushcutting toward your thumb. Add serrations and a hollow grind (which lays the cheese slices away from the blade instead of clinging and adding friction) and you have the perfect on-the-go cheese knife.
I haven't used or for anything else yet though. Honestly it might be hard to kick the byrd out of my pocket. The more I carry and use it the harder it is to believe that I paid only $26 for it.
Part of the reason I bought the Tasman was for a backup scuba dive knife, but I also plan to EDC it for awhile and see how I like it compared to the byrd.
