Case Hawkbill Pruner

The Hawkbill Pruner pocket knife from Case Knives is the black and lightweight version of the original hawkbill pruner knife featuring a flat grind 3″ (~8cm) 61011  stainless steel blade. Born of the original knife from the Case archives, this updated design was created using state-of-the-art technology and features an aggressively curved blade. Case designer Scott Freer used original hawkbill knives from Case’s factory collection along with advanced state-of-the-art computer technology to enhance performance. A great design for specialized work, Hawkbill knives usually deliver great strength from a thin design. Also known as a Lineman’s knife or Pruner’s knife, this unique blade design features great strength towards the end of the blade, making it great for pruning trees or cutting large amounts of rope or cord. The overall length is 7″ (~18cm) opend or 4″ (~10cm) closed and the knife weights in at about 1.64 oz ( ~50g)  due to its lightweight Zytel handle. For opening there is a nail nick and there is no lock (Slip Joint). I’ve got mine at Amazon for about $30 and I’m pretty happy with my buy. Especially the extreme curve of the blade is ideal for any tough job in the garden. The black handle with the brass pins and liners in nickel silver makes for a cool look made in the USA.
