Byrd Meadowlark Folding Knife -
Byrd Knives are a species of knives produced and imported by Spyderco. The hollow ground 8Cr13MoV blade is available plain edged (toothless) or a combination plain edge and 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 and 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 back lock 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.
Chinese stainless steel tempered at the Rc56 to Rc58 range and used in the Tenacious, Persistence, and Byrd lines of knives.
Hollow Ground -
The ground surface of the blade is concave and used to create a fine cutting edge.
David Boye Dent -
Custom knife 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 ha ndle 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.
