Byrd Cara Cara Folding Knife -
Categorized as a midsized all steel folder, the BY03 brings together high performance features with solid dollar value. The hollow ground 8Cr13MoV blade comes plain edged (toothless) or in a combination plain edge and serrated edge. Shaped like a "comet" the hole in the blade symbolizes both quality and tight tolerances adhered to in manufacturing. Capping the blade's spine is a series of jimping, which grip the thumb for slip free cutting. Available in a right hand configuration, the clip on the handle positions the knife tip up or tip down, attaching inside pant pocket. When gripped, the ergonomic stainless steel handle becomes a precision cutting extension of the hand. Cut from the lock's release is a David Boye Dent, a safety feature that allows tightly gripping the handle without accidentally releasing the lock.
Serrated Blade -
A serrated blade has a cutting edge that has many small points of contact with the material being cut. By having less contact area than a smooth blade, the applied force at each point of contact is relatively greater and the points of contact are at a sharper angle to the material being cut.
Chinese stainless steel tempered at the Rc56 to Rc58 range and used in the Tenacious, Persistence, and Byrd lines of knives.
David Boye Dent -
Custom knif e maker David Boye removed a small arc or dent of metal from the lock bar lever of his knives. This removed piece lessened the possibility of gripping the handle hard enough to depress the lock and accidentally unlock the blade while using the knife.
Stainless Steel -
group of corrosion resisting steels containing a minimum of 10% chromium and in which varying amounts of nickel, molybdenum, titanium, niobium as well as other elements may be present.
Tip Up and Tip Down -
Refers to which direction the folded knife if positioned by its pocket clip. When closed and clipped in a pocket, whichever direction (up or down) the blade's tip sits defines if it is termed tip up or tip down.
