I received my Model 1 today. I couldnt make up my mind about the nylon vs wood handle and ended up getting both. They are both exceptional. They kydex is fantastic, although I will be making a leather sheath/pouch for belt carry. The molded texture on the nylon handle is grippy but not rough. The edge on both hawks shaved my arm and they whizzed right through paper. RMJ dialed in the geometry and compared to my older VTAC these things are going to function as exceptional camp tools as well as a weapon if it was needed for that purpose. The pick on these are not sharpened. Its clearly designed to punch holes/breach/dig and function as the “multitool” side of the hawk. I will probably do a little photo review on these once the fall and camping/hunting season arrives. Overall my impressions are very positive. There couldnt have been a better company to makes these things.
