12-1/2 in. x 12-1/2 in. Aluminum Hawk

The wal-board tools DH-50 Aluminum Hawk is lightweight, durable and strong, with rounded corners for safety. The 12-1/2 in. square heavy-gauge aluminum top has a grain finish and circular grooves to keep your plaster or joint compound from sliding. The secure wood handle and rubberized grip offer cushioned comfort for your hands. It is reusable and will not rust.

I have found that this hawk is very lightweight but very durable. It makes mudding the drywall very fast and efficient. The hawk is also very easy to clean and since it is aluminum it will not rust.
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Work With, Good Size & Weight, Easy to Clean, High Quality, Light Weight

After using homemade ceiling tools, this was nice. Light, nice edge for wiping the knife, and works well for applying a wipe-down texture to the ceiling. Recommend having a stiff brush on hand to clean it, as mud gets in the grooves and probably dries there in the course of getting the job done. Well worth the small cost.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight

No, I do not recommend this product.
Unable to use/had to return as included carriage bolt for handle was 3/8" diam. and female adapter on the aluminum bolt circle is only 1/4". If I had the correct size tap and die I could make it work, but you'd expect a tool with 3 parts could include the correct fittings.

Simple tool that does what it should. Ergonomically comfortable. Only used it a couple of times so far, but I expect it to last well for my homeowner needs.
