first rate in every way
I use a hawkbill blade like this during pollination season in date palms. This knife is a perfect 5. Solid feel, solid overall build, good solid body for the blade, good solid blade lock, great edge. Makes the thinning cuts well and has no problem with the stray thorns that need to be removed as well. Great size / feel for all sorts of other pruning and thinning work as well. This is a keeper. Only minus, the hinge is very tight new out of the box but I'm sure will lighten up with use and I would much rather have it a little tight than even a little loose. First rate tool. excellent.
