I don't think there's an issue fitting a Hawkbill blade into the handle. Mine works perfectly, I'd just prefer something other than Yellow and H1:Blnd wrote: ↑Sun Apr 04, 2021 10:18 amI cringe every time I hear hawkbill and ladybug together. The only knife I’ve ever had open up in the pocket and I have a nice scar to show for it.
The gap between the handle and edge with the blade in the closed position is a poor compromise for a knife designed to be carried in the pocket.
I know there are a lot of hawkbill fans, but shoehorning a blade shape into a handle not designed for it is not always a good thing.
VG10 would work for me as well if it keeps costs down.
