This was our very first Hawk Lock. The “Hawk Lock” was designed because we could hide the lock inside the handles and seal the rest of the knife. The rubber boot around the button is silicon rubber and the seals are made out of polyurethane. The goal of this design was to have a knife that could be used in any environment, where dirt and debris could never get into any working part of the knife.
