Way better than the knief we get issued
This hawkbill knief is excellent for my profession. I work for the largest municipal utility in the country. This product I'd excellent for skinning large conductor's. Especially our 5kv wires. This type of conductor has a very thick insulating layer.
Milwaukee also had a Fastback hawkbill that had a more pronounced blade. Since I can no longer find that particular one, this one works ALMOST as good. But still better than any skinning knief that I come across. Way better than the ones our company issues. Just about everyone I work with uses this knief.

Anyone should buy this knife if they want quality at a great price.
The hawk bill folding knife is a perfect answer to the problem of cutting straight lines in screen and drywall plus having a great blade when needed. I enjoy the good quality and dependability of this blade and the ease of spotting the handle in the tool box or belt pouch.

Good deal
Good knife, pocket clip keeps it up so you don't have to remove glove to get it out. Nice and sharp. The clip is a little wimpy I had to take it off and straighten it, but for 15 bucks what do you want?

Just Amazing
Telco lineman for 15 years, I take this to work with me everyday and carry it everywhere I go if I don't have another one of the fastbacks with me.. In short, they are all perfect, just pick what blade you like and you are set.. Best knifes I own, best utility knifes I own, and I have many.. If it broke tonite I would own another tomorrow..
