Meadowlark 2 - PlainEdge
Byrd Knives are a new species of knives produced and imported by Spyderco. The BY04 Meadowlark is the smallest byrd in the nest to date. The hollow-ground 440C/8Cr13MoV blade is available plain edged (toothless) or a combination plain edge/serrated edge configuration and fitted with a “comet” shaped opening hole that is unique to byrd designs and represents a symbol of quality. Texturing crosshatches the blade’s spine gripping the thumbprint for slip free cutting. Its stainless steel handle fits in the hand ergonomically for right-hand use with a tip-up/tip-down carry clothing clip letting you clip the knife to the top of your pocket, pants or belt. With a reaffirming click the blade locks open with a backlock featuring a David Boye dent. This crescent removed from the lock release acts as a safety feature allowing the handle be tightly gripped without the possibility of unintentionally releasing the lock. The BY04 Meadowlark presents a cost effective alternative to Spyderco’s main CLIPIT-line of high-performance knives standing independently on their design and performance merits.
Spyderco’s byrd line of knives offers all the functionality and convenience of their core product line at prices that make them hands down the best value in the cutlery industry. Manufactured in China under Spyderco’s close supervision, byrd knives offer a remarkable synthesis of manufacturing quality, performance, reliability, and affordability.
byrd blades are ground from 8Cr13MoV and CTS BD1 stainless steels, both are durable alloys that include vanadium for enhanced toughness and edge retention. This popular material provides an excellent balance of cutting performance, edge retention, and ease of sharpening, making it the ideal platform for affordable working knives.
All byrd knives feature the trademarked “comet” hole that provides decisive one-handed opening with either hand. They also feature a choice of handle materials that includes textured G-10, Bi-Directional Textured fiberglass-reinforced nylon (FRN), and satin-finished stainless steel and titanium. Other premium features like phosphor bronze washers, screw-together construction, and four-position clips complete the byrd package and enable these knives to provide the same functionality and versatility as Spyderco best-selling products.
byrd knives are an ideal option for cost-conscious knife users and also make an affordable gift for friends who are new to knives.
