A redesigned ergonomic pointing hawk.
Current pointing hawks offer little comfort for users and often result in uncomfortable body positions. This redesigned pointing hawk, ergonomically focused, has an added front lip to help apply mortar. The user is therefore able to point bricks with added comfort and ease.
The Pointsman's handle is at 60 degrees from horizontal which offers increased ergonomic comfort. The orientation of the handle means less strain is put on the wrist as this position is more natural. Current pointing hawk handles are at 90 degrees to the top plate, which can put added strain on the users wrist.
Where the handle meets the top plate, a rubber cushion allows the user to comfortably rest the plate on the top of their hand. This enables the weight of the hawk and mortar to be taken with the shoulder and bicep reducing the strain on the forearm for comfortable all day use.
The application lip allows a more precise direct application of mortar from the pointing hawk to the wall. The user can access lower areas with less strain on their wrist, whilst the lip also helps to apply and retain the mortar.
