Hawks are most often used by plasterers and decorators, along with a finishing trowel to apply a smooth finish of plaster to a wall. It is used to temporarily hold a viscous material (such as plaster and filler) so that the user can apply that material to a surface using a different tool.
The R.S.T. Aluminium Hawk has a grooved blade and a plastic handle.
