Customer Questions & Answers

Is the fastbck hawkbill blade replacablle ?

Asked by: maggie
No. However, you may be able to order a new blade as a replacement part by contacting us at 1-800-SAWDUST. The tool also has a Limited Lifetime Warranty. So the blade could be replaced under warranty if the failure in the part was determined to be due to errors made in workmanship or material.

New knife. How can I close it?

Pushed side button. Still won't close.
Asked by: Susie
It's like all the other new knives( that uses the tiny screws without using any threadlock) You press the button with your thumb and flip it out then look where the blade goes when closed and you will see a brass locking bar. Mash it away from the blade and close it.

Customer Reviews

FASTBACK Hawk Bill Flip Knife is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from I'd pay more for better quality I work on power lines and this is the style of knife we typically use. I like that I can take it out of my pocket and flip it open with rubber gloves and sleeves on. However, it's just not tough enough. The metal is soft and can't hold an edge for long when you're skinning wire with it constantly. Also, the clip is flimsy and prone to bending. It's a cheap knife and I get that, but I'd love to have this thing in carbon steel with a better clip. It would be perfect for my job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I had originally bought this knife with the intention of using it to cut double and triple walled... I had originally bought this knife with the intention of using it to cut double and triple walled cardboard boxes that would otherwise be a hassle with my utility knife,I found that even after sharpening it did it's job but the cut when utilizing the tip and running through the material was jagged but was once I was locked in the material i found that using the rear of the blade closer to your index finger provided a smoother cut .Shortly after purchasing this product I went to my aunts house to help her plant some palm trees and this knife and blade shape was exceptional at stripping the trees of there black plastic pots that otherwise was thick enough as to discourage the use of a utility knife i simply pierced the pot pulled and the rest was history.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An inexpensive, but useful and massively durable knife I carry this knife with me while doing yard work, fishing or general chores. I once accidently threw mine into a pond while cutting sticker bushes. I was able to retrieve it three weeks later and was surprised to find it in perfect working order with no rust. I own many knives but this one has earned it's way to the top

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Knife, Sorry Clip design I use this knife everyday in powerline construction. The hawkbill is perfect for cutting tape without damaging the wire. The wire belt clip has been my only issue with this knife. The clip tends to get hung up and bent. I finally had to throw the clip away. Great Knife, bad clip design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Hand Opening, Sharp and Solid I already have one of the straight blades like this. I liked it so much, I got the Hawkbill version. Both have the same easy one hand opening. Just press the lick button and flip. How many times have you had to drop what you're doing, just to open your knife. You won't do that again with this one. The belt clip is reversible, so you can move the clip from one side to the other. Whichever is best for you. The blade is stainless steel and locks into place so there's no accidental closing. It comes with a lifetime warranty. This is a very solidly build knife that will quickly become your favorite.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from over priced and dulls out too fast this item needs to be completely redesigned with a better and longer lasting sharp blade
Date published: 2016-01-29
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great knife, great shape This is a great carry knife for the handy person. It is sharp and flips out at a flick of the wrist. The fact that is non-American removes one star. I prefer American made.
