Plastic Hawk
11-Aug-2014
By
, Abergavenny
"Couldnt really fault this unit. Its about the right size. Its as light as you're going to get. Its got a patterned base so that the mixture does not slide off. The handle is detachable for flat storeage reasons. Negatives. I can only think of two. Would be nice if the was some way to attach the handle to the board in storeage mode so that you don't loose either part. and secondly....I think its rather steep at £7.99 for what it is. Some have made their own out of plywood and nailed on a handle. That works too."

"bought this Hawk primarily for Dot and Dabbing, and its perfect for the price.
the grippy rings help keep the adhesive on the board whilst scooping off with your float, and keeping clean is easy... just scrape off with your float/trowel when finished, and then a little tapping on the floor after its dried and all the adhesive flakes off and leaves the Hawk clean.
cant comment on long term reliability yet because im only half way thru the house, but so far its still as good as new :)

Good value for money
24-Apr-2014

"Having had an old wooden hawk for the past 30 odd years it had finally given up the ghost and refused to be repaired any more.
We as a small business do very little in the way of plastering nowadays, mainly making good chases etc, so we looked for a reasonably priced one that my clowns couldn't break or bend that easily. Having found this plastic one it performs better than expected and cleans up after use, even to the point if not washed off the day before.
Yes, whether you are trade or DIY you can't go far wrong with this product, we know that the professionals would turn their nose up at this one, but we are well pleased. I seriously think that if you want a hawk for what ever reason this is the one for you, and the handle unscrews for stowage as well.

"As a DIY'er I found this easy to use, light and serves the purpose. For the price it does what it says. Is easy to clean as the plaster when hard knocks off so easily. Handle detaches so can be easily stored. All in all worth the money."

Cheap but tricky to clean
23-Apr-2014
By
, Cambridge
"First the positives, it does the job and is very cheap. The only problem is the plastic concentric ridges on the surface, which I think would have been better left off. I guess they're supposed to stop the plaster sliding off, but they just make the hawk harder to clean, especially if the plaster has dried (makes you more disciplined about washing kit promptly which I guess is a good thing!)
Overall, a good buy if you're on a tight budget, otherwise probably get a metal one without the ridges."

Good for diy
02-Feb-2010
By
, Somerset
"Inexpensive, robust, lightweight plastic hawk. Great for diy jobs - patching, pointing etc. Have used it to plaster a couple of small walls and it work really well.
Reduced to £6 in the sale so bargain!
Handle is detachable, which means it can be stored flat.
Would not imagine it would stand up too well to pro use.

What a great piece of equipmen

"I had never used a hawk for plastering before - only worked from a bucket, on small jobs, but this was a job up a ladder so I bought one. What a difference it makes - and at this price, this hawk is so cheap you would be crazy not to use it."

ok for diy
28-Nov-2010
By
, london
"not the best hawk for skimming, yes its not heavy, but the plaster sticks to it over time and is hard to clean and the dried plaster flakes sometimes gets on your trowel and on to the wall, i suppose its ok for a diy job but would not recommend if your plastering on an regular basis."
