Spyderco Knives SuperHawk Folder with Carbon Fiber Handle and Compression Lock
Spyderco ‘s new SuperHawk is their first new hook blade folder in quite a while. This one is the largest we have seen with a 3.5″ blade and it features Spyderco’s great Compression Lock system. The compression lock is similar to a liner lock, but the liner meets the base of the blade on the top side of the handle for easy access. The Carbon Fiber handle is textured for light weight and a sure grip is all conditions and this knife has full steel liners on both sides for added strength. If you need a large hook blade, this SuperHawk is powerful, strong and will last generations.
Here is Spyderco’s information for this great knife:
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 steel in the industry today. A high percentage of carbon and cobalt earn it 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.
