Thanks guys for the positive feedback! Mqqn, I'm glad you appreciate some of the design elements, I can only take half credit though (other goes to JK for his masterful work). It means a lot coming from forumites who have as much if not more passion about blades and gear as i do. I'm very excited to see different iterations of this hawk if others order them!
JK- email inbound, and feel free to grab any of my pics off the site if you want some in addition to the oak Cassam you're working on for clich!
