OP13110: N010 Hawkbill Pruning Knife, Stainless Steel

Stabilized beechwood is ultra resistant and comfortably contoured to fit the hand.

This knife does not lock in the closed position.

Very specific tool
This knife is good for pruning, but very little else. If you own grapes or citrus, this is your tool. I thought I might be able to use it for several things, but really it's strictly for drupes and heavy tropical fruits. Holds a good edge. Oh, do not get the handle soaking wet, as it will swell and the blade will be almost impossible to open for two days until it dries.

hawkbill blades
This knife has the deep curve that I want but it also has some shortcomings. The body of the blade is rather thin, which makes it a little light weight for some of the heaver cuts I make. I use a knife like this during pollination season in date palms. The knife id perfect for the cut to thin the flowers, but a little light to trip the stray date thorn that has grown in the last couple of months. Also the lock is a twist of a second collar ring that wedges into the butt of the blade. It does not snap into locked position, but uses the wedge compression. It is not as secure as other types of blade locks, nor as sturdy. It does come with a nice edge and it does take a good edge with a hone. Works well for thinning grape of tomatoes, would give it a 4.5 for that, but too light weight for date palms.
