Hawkbill Blade – Honey Badger “Claw” Models

Hawkbill knives, sometimes referred to as talons, are characterized by a spine and edge that curve down in the same direction to create a downward-facing point. This shape allows the blade to cut efficiently when pulled back in the direction of the handle, or in a lateral cut, so most of their use comes through utilitarian tasks like cutting carpet and linoleum and pruning vegetation, but it’s also a very functional design for yachtsmen eg in rope cutting, and very widely used by emergency personnel as a rescue knife. This blade style, also sometimes known as a Karambit, initially first originated in Sumatra as an agricultural implement, but also has a very achieved alternate usage as a defensive weapon, in the application of certain very effective martial art techniques.
