Long live Phi Zetta Rippo
Well that's one member for the "Phi Zetta Rippo" Hawkbill fraternity
The basic requirement is that you have to at least own one serious Hawkbill model. IT can be a non-Spyderco but preferrably A Spyderco Hawkbill would be much better for obvious reasons. This will be a good way to spread the news about these most misunderstood blades.
And KKC I'll join you in that attempt to resurrect the fallen SUPERHAWK model which truly never got a fair chance simply because they never offered it in Spyderedge. I've heard good things about 52100 blade steel even though I'm not all that big of a high carbon steel fan per se but what the heck maybe a Hawkbill might really perform better than expected with an old, really admired steel like 52100. I remember the guy that wrote those great articles for Tactical Knives magazine in the "Steel Bin" section of the magazine. He was always bragging about how good 52100 blade steel was if heat treated properly.
A deluxe, Excalibur version of the SUPERHAWK really makes great sense to me as well. This could be a way to launch a series of high grade Hawkbill blades.
