MYKEL'S PRODUCTS



One of the first products designed by Mykel Hawke was produced and sold by Tops Knives. The Hawke Hellion Survivor and the smaller Elite version were widely acclaimed and much in demand during Hawke's association with Tops. With a desire to design more unique products across multiple categories of survival tools, Mykel worked to create his own Brand, where he produced a line of knives which included the popular Harrier and Peregrine. He also introduced some one-of-a-kind tools, including the HASP axe and Hawkchete.


Mykel's first product line was Mykel Hawke Knives, which was expanded to cover the full outdoor adventure spectrum with The Hawke Brand. The Hawke Brand encompasses training and products created or supported by Mykel Hawke for families and professionals alike, for everyone every day or for taking it to the extreme. Tough, tested, and tailored to provide new solutions to timeless challenges from cutting-edge serious to limitless fun!
