PURCHASING THE MALVEN HAWK TOOL. The Malven Hawk Tool system is comprised of three different tool ends (shown at left, in the photo below): the ”Hawk” head, the “Raptor” end and the “Hallux” end, now cast in Malven’s stainless tool alloy. Tools can be configured with a single end and butt-cap, or any combination of two ends. Tools are ordinarily assembled on raw, 1” diameter chromium molybdenum (chrome moly) steel handles. However, beginning mid-summer, 2018, solid 1” diameter fiberglass handles will be added as an extra cost option.

PURCHASING MALVEN ENTRY TOOLS. Right from the beginning, the Malven Hawk Tool was designed to be the natural companion of modern Halligan bars. For many years Hawks and Halligans– especially various configurations produced by the Aazel Corporation– were nearly inseparable. We’re pleased to announce that we recently completed the purchase of the Aazel Fire Tool Company. Beginning around the end of May, 2019, we will be the sole producer of the original wide-adzed “Monster” bar, the straight adzed “Classic” and the “Hayward Claw” tool (with integral Cully Lugs). All will be continue to be manufactured of stainless steel, available polished or unpolished in lengths of 24″, 27″, 30″, 36″ and 42″. These and other forthcoming entry tools will be marketed where it belongs– side-by-side with the Hawk Tool.
