Myke Hawke's description:
Mykel Hawke has teamed up with TOPS Knives to make a new survival knife. Mykel has designed a knife specifically for maximum function and efficiency for the survivor. Hawke's years of real field experience and dirt time found most other blades lacking in one or more areas. TOPS Knife Makers have a combined 100 years of real field, rescue, law, combat, and special ops experience. Together, they have created one of the most useful all purpose utilitarian survival knives ever made.
The handle has 2 lanyard holes for left/right or double security. It is made of micarta which actually improves the grip when wet and is designed to be fatter in the middle to give maximum human hand grip, no matter how slippery from water or blood. The handle has a divet in it to be used as the socket for the fire bow drill method.
The sheath is made of a ballistic nylon to reduce weight and rot, inherent with leather sheaths. It has a kydex insert shaped for the knife to make it extra strong and extra safe. The sheath can be tied down to the leg for active wear or worn sideways along the belt on the waist.
The blade is 9 inches total, 8 inches of working length, the handle is 5 inches. This gives the knife the best general length to serve as both a large tool like a machete and a small tool like a hand knife. This inherently means the knife can NOT be as good as a machete for heavy chopping, nor can it be as good as a small camping/fishing knife for whittling. However, the machete is terrible for whittling which is vital for surviving and the camp knife is horrible for doing the heavy lifting every survivor needs, like chopping to make a shelter, etc. To this end, Hawke's Hellion is designed to wreak havoc on both sets of needs specifically for the Survivor to have 2020 vision for jobs big and small. This makes the Hellion the best single tool for any survivor when they can only carry one item to do everything they need to survive. This means the Survivor's best choice for an all-purpose tool is simple: For all things survival, it's HAWKE's HELLION, anytime, anything, anywhere!
