I cut a cherry tree out of it's 10 gallon bucket today with my spyderhawk. It punches into and through the plastic so easy. I immediately remembered why I love a good hawkbill in the yard.ThePeacent wrote:I wonder how many of us use the Hawkbills as our dedicated gardening folders...dsvirsky wrote:ANY color and I will buy (at least) one in SE. Last time, I picked one up in PE and, while it's my go to "yard work" knife, SE works so much better for those sorts of tasks.

That's nice, I do really like those oldschool grips and love the slim linerless design of the current Salts. I thought the new new Salt grip might be a bit too thick for me. That way at least I'll have a bit of time to get some extra Salts before the entire series gets rehandled.sal wrote:Hi Joris,Joris Mo wrote:I'd take any Sprint as long as it's still using the old slim volcano grip handles.
For now that is the only way we could make it. We just finished the new mold for the Salt 1, et al, but we haven't begun the new mold for the larger handle.
I held something similar at the Spydiemeet and it is great but I have a soft spot for slim handles and this oldschool FRN, I would for instance love it if a Sprint would be made with the old style Delica's & Endura's 3 so I did lean towards the old Salt handle but I can definitely see this should be an upgrade for many.sal wrote:I just got sample of the first piece from the new mold. It's actually very nice, still light, a little thicker, but the better directional texture is nice.
You're going to hate me "Zrow" Because I've had a "user" blue PE, VG-10 Spyderhawk since 2005. And believe it or not I actually use the blue PE Spyderhawk about twice a year. I'm actually surprised to see someone put up a pic of it because you just don't see those very often at all. Now the one I got has a chrome/stainless pocket clip instead of the black one on yours. However I've seen them both ways over the years which confuses me because I think they only ran that model less than one year.ZrowsN1s wrote:Any comment on the final steel, handle color, PE/SE choice for this run Sal? Looking forward to this one.
I like the look of this vg-10 one a lot.
