    Hawkbill knives

    Hello,
    Just finished these two knives and thought you might like to see some pics. Hole in the blade is used under licence by Spyderco
    Thanks for looking
    Farid

    Since the folder uses the trademark hole under licence I thought it has everything to do with spyderco, that is the reason I posted the pics here.
    Thank you

    Hello Farid. What is with the grind line interuption on the folder ?
    Could you please post a picture of it in the closed position because I would like to see how the blade snugs arround ? the handle. Looks like a thick blade & the chisel grind, is it for a specific purpose ?

    Hi O, here are other versions I have made in the past. The blade is 5/32" cpm-s90v on the folder and 1/4" 440-c on the other.
    Take care
    Farid

    Thank you

    Since its not a knife produced by spyderco I also think it should be in off topic.





    Anyways, looks really nice!
    Love to see a picture of it closed.

    Cool knives! I do agree though, it probably should be in off-topic. Oh well.

    Farid, your creative insanity is contagious! Knowing your other knives, I am sure these are built like tanks!

    Looks like a knife that's very challenging to sharpen.

    What is the design purpose? Is this a self-defense or fighting knife?

    Not sure that looks real comfortable for pocket carry. ...

    I use a flexible wide belt to sharpen the blade.

    Very interesting work. What is the reason for the high spot or ridge that divides the cutting edges?
