The Byrd Hawkbill knife has a fully serrated blade that makes it a superb cutting tool. The blade shape allows for controlled pull cuts. The black fiberglass handle has a lock back steel frame and Bi-Directionally Textured scales. The pocket clip is fully reversible for right of left-handed use and tip-up or down carry.
I got this a while back. It was my first hawkbill and first fully serrated knife. Works very well at cutting zip ties and straps at work. Lighter than most utility/ razor knives with more blade/reach. I use it for everything except exclusively cutting up cardboard. Serrations keep cutting when most plain edges go dull. For my purposes this works better than my plain edge spyderco Delica wharncliffe. I’ve been eyeing the Robin 2 wharncliffe and checking to see when it’s in stock. It’ll be a gift to myself someday.
This knife has really impressed me for a budget blade. I use it daily, it's razor sharp and great for cutting. I highly recommend this knife for budget collectors
I do renovation contracts, etc. While on the job, I have to cut open all kinds of boxes, cordage, tape- and often times, carpet. This knife LOVES to dig into 25+ year old wall to wall, nicotine encrusted, cat urine stained shag carpet! Like a zipper... (The only problem is that the steel wears down fast. This exact knife, with some tool steel, or even premium steel - and a plain edge, would be a best seller. It's other main strength being it's low weight.
I really like this knife because its light weight and cuts through rope really well and has a great point. the serrations will go dull after a lot of use but I found them to stay sharp enough for two years now. modding the spidey hole to a wave feature worked great and is recommended. It locks up great and is faster to deploy then my Emerson and less dangerous looking. You will have to resharpen the point as it will dull the quickest.
This knife is pretty good for the money. The serrated hawkbill ripped through material fast, and the lock was nice and sturdy. Ergos were good, and the texturing on the scales kept it firmly in your hand. The only thing I didn't like was the jimping on the blade. It was poorly cut and rounded off and pretty much useless in both the thumb ramp and the finger choil. Other than that it was a solid little knife.
