Nothing is more appropriately engineered for downward, pulling cuts than a Hawkbill blade. The tip's curve holds what you're cutting against the sharp edge for failsafe, downward-motion cutting, done at arms length. On that same note, nothing says high-tech more than a carbon fiber handle and VG-10 steel blade. The outcome of paring state-of-the-art material components with the Hawkbill blade shape is the SuperHawk.
VG-10 blade steel holds court as one of the hardest performing knife steels in the industry today. A high percentage of carbon and cobalt earn its honors for cutting aptitude and edge retention. Full flat-ground, the blade is available PlainEdged. The handle is peel ply carbon fiber, an ultra light laminate with formidable tensile strength and a woven texture that sticks to the palm putting the brakes on forward or backward sliding. Left- right-hand wire clip is pocket friendly, clipping the knife to carry deeply while being easy on the fabric.
