As said, the sharpmaker is a great tool and makes it easy. Great choice on the Tasman for gardening. For the life of me I can't figure out why they don't make an H1 SE Spyderhawk Salt as a production knife and try to market it to the gardening and landscaping community selling through online gardening purveyors?
Yeah, it seems strange that some of Spyderco’s more specialised designs are not more well known as high quality tools in the trades and activities that they are perfectly suited for.
The area where I live in Victoria has very good soil, so plant nurseries are the primary industry. Often the businesses which supply materials to the nurseries have perspex wall units of the specialist Victorinox gardening knives. But I’ve never seen a Spyderco being used in a plant nursery. I can only imagine how popular the H1 SE hawkbill knives would be among professional plant growers.
(Two of my brothers run a nursery, and use a combo edge blacked out Delica and a SE byrd Rescue as their work knives of choice, but that’s slightly different, as I introduced those knives to them.)
I’d definitely get a Spyderhawk if another run were made too.
