I really like this one. The AUS 8 steel sharpens up like a razor. I have dozens of other neck knives but none are even close to this one. My only minor complaint is the finger holes are too close together. Not the knifes fault I have large hands. Overall it’s super nice to have one that holds a razor edge. I will use this one much more than my others mainly because it gets so sharp. Love it.
I was sent this knife as a gift. Aesthetically it is pleasing, ergonomically it is a wonder and it is utilitarian as all get-out. The hawkbill arrived razor-sharp, and the serrated part cut through a 1/2 inch branch like a hot knife through butter.
Depending where you live and/or where you decide to travel to, there are rules and regulations when it comes to the type knife that you can carry as your EDC (everyday carry). As an example, here in NJ, we are able to carry a folder. But 20 minutes away in NYC, folders are illegal and fixed blades are legal. I referenced the simplistic version of the laws but you get the gist of my point…
Recently, I was in the market for a fixed blade that I could use as EDC when my folder choice is not an option. I wanted something that would perform well in a combative application but wouldn’t break the bank. I came across the Hawkeye By Off-Grid Knives and it peaked my curiosity. It was made from quality material, full tang and included a kydex sheath. I decided to give it a try and… I am certainly happy with my choice.
This blade is modeled after a karambit. It’s curvature and finger hole placement is ideal for anyone wanting to add a karambit type fixed blade to their arsenal. As always, I recommend taking a fair amount of time getting used to, and training with this knife before it becomes part of your EDC. Knowing the existing laws for the places that you choose to carry this blade in, is also crucial in order to stay under the radar. Bottom Line:
If you are in the market for a fixed-blade, karambit type knife, take a look at this one by Off-Grid Knives. The quality is there… at an incredibly reasonable price.
Very nice neck knife at a great price point for the quality. Feels solid when held as it has perfect weight for its size. Would definitely recommend if you are looking for a knife of this type. I am very pleased with it.
I received my first Off-Grid Hawkeye yesterday, and just.placed and order for two more!
Although I don't consider myself to be a great fan of neck knives, I have at least three other examples from different makers. The main problem I have with most neck knives is their design - either the handle or the blade is too short. Most neck knives do only one thing, and not as well as the average small folder. The Hawkeye has a very good handle, and the karambit blade profile makes the blade length appropriate. Although this knife will end up being mainly used to cut open ammo boxes, it would still serve better than my others for self defense.
A great value. The gimping and finger holes are in just the right places for my medium/small hands, and the short section of very grabby serrations add another level of utility.
