In this busy world, people don’t have time or space to carry a single knife for every purpose. Instead, you want the most useful everyday carry possible, preferably to have the best combination of utility, durability, and weight. Hawkbill folding knives are a great place to end your search, as they’re an excellent EDC whose usefulness has continued through centuries.
Features of a Hawkbill Knife
A hawkbill knife has a straight handle that moves into a curved blade which then ends in a hook very similar to a hawk’s beak. Taking inspiration from the wickedly curved beak of this bird of prey, the hawkbill similarly uses its inward curving blade to hook and cut materials.
Utilizing the length of the blade for cutting, it requires little effort to cut linoleum or prune a tree. Recent years have seen it being used in more tactical applications, as the shape has proven to be a good combat shape in knowledgeable hands.
Why Choose a Hawkbill Folding Knife
The hawkbill offers an excellent degree of control in cutting, and a good piercing tip. The tip will remain sharp even after the blade has dulled. That curve also provides a good degree of cutting safety in bad weather, particularly for those on boats, as there’s little risk of the blade slipping and cutting the user.
From a quality knife maker, a hawkbill is a good choice for a tactical blade as it’s durable, and has multiple functions, from cutting to slashing or piercing.
