Rattle Hawk, happening or not happening?

    I am sure I could hurt myself with a kill devil. Look at that. It's so wicked it has a blood groove on the shaft of the handle. But I would order a rattle hawk if it was offered.

    high desert, you have your Hawks crossed; the Kill Devil is the smaller on with the blunt spike and the Rattle Hawk is the larger one with the sharpened spike. And, that fuller is there to reduce weight and make it more 'head-heavy' aiding in the Rattle Hawks maneuverability, it's not for blood.

    I am jealous of everyone lucky enough to score a Rattle Hawk at Blade. But...

    Does anyone from the Swamp have an official word on the Rattle Hawk that they can share?

    Thanks

    They didn't have much other new stuff at Blade so I would guess a regular release is probable, or at least a ganzaa run.

    I just opened mine and it is awesome. I was expecting it to be a little clunky but its nice and light and straight up wicked.

    I kid you not, it took me a minute to figure out what the heck that photo was for!

    Haha! Me too. I looked at it and immediately thought of it as something that couldn't happen, but it was probably 5 minutes later when I looked at it and said "Ohhh, Rattle Hawk!"

    Two weeks, I have it on good authority from Jerry and gang.

    Looks like this will come out first, good. I need a little time to get up enough money for the butaniku...
