Hawkeye Classic Slim Borescopes


Classic Slim 0.165" (4.20 mm)

In 1995, the first Hawkeye Precision Borescope broke new ground. Using our newly developed endoGRINs gradient index lenses, we became able to offer image quality similar to the finest borescopes made anywhere in the world and do so at one-third of the price.

Today, Hawkeye Classic Rigid Borescopes are a great value as they have always been.

Hawkeye Classic Borescopes are used by building inspectors, technicians, sportsmen, manufacturers and more.

Exceptional Value and quality have made Hawkeye Rigid Borescopes the world leader in sales of rigid borescopes.
