As a member of SOG's low-end line of tools, this hawk performs about as one would expect. It is sturdy, easy to wield, and comfortable in the hand. The pick tip does pretty well against limestone and softer rock.
I am not so impressed with the choice of steel. The edge dulls quickly, and becomes noticeably less effective after 30 minutes of hard work. It throws ok and cuts meat, but not good for serious chopping.
