    hi, I have two of the AG Russell Beak folders, they are really hefty and strong and well made with a nice fit and finish, a great value for the money. AG does some decent quality control btw, and the ones that don't pass it but are fully functional are sold as seconds - hat off, I wish more sellers would do this kind of QC.

    I bought one because I like hawks and I found it to be a great design. The blade is very thick and strong, but the tip is fine for more delicate work. Good strong lockback. I haven't used it yet though, the edge is really sharp but it is not really a slicing blade to cut and graft branches or trees, in my view, I prefer my Tina Germany hawkbills with thinner blades for that kind of work. Nevertheless, I liked the Beak so much I purchased a second one. The blade looks a lot like the ones on some vintage Sheffield pruning knives, it just has no convex edge but a hollow ground blade with secondary bevel edge, and it's a very strong and sturdy folder. Hope this helps a bit. My advice is: try one, you won't be disappointed.
