In the world of pocketknives G-10 has super-hero status as a handle material. It's a woven epoxy filled laminate that's grippy in the hand, is nearly indestructible, repels moisture and chemicals and won't retain heat or cold. The smaller Meadowlark model is one of two of the byrd line's first laminate handle offering. Featuring a hollow-ground blade made from high-carbon 8Cr13MoV stainless steel that's available with a plain edge or combination plain edge/serrated cutting edge. The comet shaped hole in the blade is found on all byrd knives and symbolizes quality and tight manufacturing tolerances and allows the knife to be opened one handedly. Keeping the knife slip-free in the hand while cutting is a section of crosshatched texturing on the blade's spine called jimping. The G-10 Meadowlark is right-handed with pre-drilled holes in the handle so the pocket clip can be positioned to carry either tip-up or tip-down. Further augmenting the folder's rigidity and strength are full-length stainless steel liners set inside the handle. Offering a tasteful touch of embellishing, filework running the length of the handle's spine. A David Boye Dent in the lock's release lever lets you muscle down on the lock without the worry of disengaging the blade unintentionally.
