    The gear-a-thon continues!

    Ray Mears began it. Bear had his with Gerber. Les has his with Camillus, but I do like the other one with Helle (the Tamegami).

    Now Myke Hawke has his own line with SMKW.


    What say you? (Goes to get chips and beer, puts his feet up. . .)

    More like angles and straight lines. Being a survival star does not a good knife designer make. I don't see a one of those "bad boys" that I think is a good design, but they'll sell like crazy because they're "different" and have a celebrity attached to them.

    I see nothing there of interest to me.

    I see these as being aimed at the BudK crowd.

    Pretty much my thoughts. He may have survival experience but he's not the first guy to spend a night in the wild. So I have to wonder why all of his stuff is such a radical departure from the norm. Did he figure out something that everyone else missed? But then again, maybe he did. It's not like I'm a survival expert.

    Aren't they exclusive to Bud K? Or was it SMKW? One of those I think.

    I can see a lot of these knives piling up at police stations after getting pulled off of baggy pants punks.

    I'm just gonna come out and say it: I have a lot of hate for that guy. He is the worst version of Alpha-Dog male that reality TV has yet to churn out.

    Plus the dude wears two giant wristwatches.:confused:

    Well as far as survival goes, its a hardened piece of sharp steel with a handle on it. it should work very well for survival....stuff. No reason it should not do so.
    I hope the stuff sells well, he and his wife comes across as nice people on TV, and that's as close as I'll ever get to them or the knives, unless I get 1 as a present, I'd like that :)

    I'm actually one of those who does like Myke "Say His Name 3X Fast" Hawke.

    Among all of the ex-SF-turned-TV-guys (Terry Schappert, Richard Machowicz and Cade Courtley), he's probably the smartest enough to parlay his skills into good enterprise.

    But it took all of a second for me to do a face palm to see those folding wing "guards" and scythe-like blade angles and say "What the f**k is that!?"

    What's with the two watches worn backwards? This guy has became a joke.

    Thank god for those manual flip out hand guards. In a knife fight that will totally save me.....as long as my assailant gives me the time to pull them out!

    When I first saw these online, I assumed they would be like the old "swing guard" knives, and move into place with the blade.....that they are manual just makes them more goofy.................

    Ok, which one would you chose if you were FORCED to try/use one of them? I'd give that shovel thingy a try. Slightly surprised by where he sees a „hammer“ on it though...

    Exclusive to SMKW. In terms of being a radical differentiation he's just found a way to make his designs stand out. However, the total absence of curves would make certain kinds of cuts difficult.

    By the way, for those who hadn't already figured it out, the shovel, machete, and tomahawk are all made by Condor.
