Harpy, VG10 Handle, Serrated.
Like the claw of the Harpy eagle the C08 is shaped for
controlled pulling cuts. The hawkbill blade shape originated in the
marine/fishing industry where severing rope, line, webbing and netting
is done at arm's length quickly and efficiently. The curving arc holds
what you're cutting against the sharpened edge keeping it from slipping
off the tip.
Custom knifemaker David Boye developed the dent in the locking lever,
which insures the blade remains securely locked open when gripping the
handle with force. Cut out of the handle is a shackle key/drying vent
allowing air to circulate around the blade when closed wet. Metal clip
is positioned for tip down carry.
