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– all investment cast in Malven’s stainless steel tool alloy. Tools can be configured with a single end (the so-called “basic” configuration) or any combination of two ends. Tools are ordinarily assembled on raw, 1” diameter chromium-molybdenum (chrome moly) steel handles. However, solid 1” outside diameter solid fiberglass handles are also available as an extra cost option.

PURCHASING MALVEN ENTRY TOOLS. Right from the beginning, we designed the Malven Hawk Tool to be the natural, functionally logical companion of modern Halligan bars. Initially, it was tailored to mate up with Iowa American’s original stainless steel Halligan for easy carry. Since 2017, MalvenWorks has been the sole producer of the formerly Aazel line of entry bars, including the original wide-adzed “Monster” bar, the straight adzed “Classic” and the “Hayward Claw” tool (with integral Cully Lugs). In 2020, we introduced our third Halligan configuration, the “All-American,” which adds an innovative curved adze version to our line. All are 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 they belong– side-by-side with the Hawk Tool.
MALVEN ENTRY TOOL PRICING. We keep a good supply of all four of our entry bars in stock, in the traditional 30″ length for rapid shipment. We also try to keep a limited number of tools on hand in the less common lengths– 24″, 27″, and 36″. We regularly supplie the Los Angeles City Fire Department with our Hayward Claw Tools and Classic Halligan bars with an impeccible mirror-polished finish. We do not ordinarily stock tools in the polished configruation. However, we do offer them as a special order item with the same incredible finish. Delivery for special orders typically takes at least two additional weeks and costs an additional $150.
