Competition Throwing Hawk Description
This hawk is for experienced
throwers. It weighs 1 and ¼ pounds And comes with a flame-hardened hickory
handle and a saddle leather blade cover. After two years of field-testing
the prototype, interviewing winning hawk throwers, and using it in
competition myself, I finally have a design with the “feel” I was looking
There are several design
features specific to my hawk. The Kelley Competition Hawk has a high
forward-slanting tip and a thin-ground blade for better target penetration.
The heads are precision Investment cast in S5 shock-resistant steel tempered
to Rockwell C55. I know of no better steel for this application. If I did
I’d use it. The blade has a 4-inch cutting edge (legal in MLNRA
competition), and a flat poll for stake pounding around camp. Notice the
distinctive “two finger” grip under the blade for carrying the hawk between
targets. All edges are rounded for comfort and safety. You can even “twirl”
this hawk, like a six-gun, if you feel like showing off.
This hawk isn’t for
beginners. If you’re an experienced competitor you’ll soon appreciate the difference in this hawk and
others. If you’ve reached a “plateau” in your throwing, this hawk
can help you reach the next level. Satisfaction Guaranteed.
