Looking to create a knife that would thrive under the demands of everyday chores, knifemaker Liong Mah knew there was an opportunity to combine contemporary simplicity with top-performing functionality. The Mah-Hawk™ is a compact folding knife that manages to check both boxes. Designed with D2 blade steel with a curved edge, the drop point delivers stronger, more controlled action when the knife is put to work. Also enhanced with Ken Onion’s award-winning Assisted Opening and Flavio Ikoma’s IKBS™ ball bearing pivot system, the blade deploys lightning fast for a smooth rotation.
Looking to design a knife exuding all-around excellence, Liong approached the traditional-inspired swayback handle to accommodate both left or right-handed gripping. And in the case of needing a reverse edge effect for cutting material towards you, simply flip the knife upside down in hand and get to work. And when it’s time to stow it away, the knife’s low profile clip lets you switch from left to right-side, depending on your preference. Complete with a well-placed groove and carbon fiber texture along the handle for a secure and sturdy grip, it’ll seem like this utility knife was designed with just you in mind.
Hawk-like focus on the everyday mission, this knife is ready for action.
How Assisted Opening Works
It's held securely closed in your pocket, but initiate the deployment, and part way through the rotation the blade opens at impressive speed for simple, powerful, one-handed opening.

If we didn’t know any better, we’d think the English definition of Mah is “practical.” After all, it’s a useful sensibility Liong incorporates into all of his designs, like the new G.S.D.™, the ever popular Eat‘N Tool®, and the 2015 Mah-chete™. As a kid, where others doodled cartoons in their school notebooks, he drew knife designs. Later, having learned CAD, he was able to bring these ideas to life by collaborating with many of the top designers in the industry.
