With the addition of the black Cara Cara, there's now an all-black, non-reflective folder option to value attentive byrd line of knives. Designed for peak performance at a value price, the knife is coated with black electric plating. The plating eliminates the steel's reflective quality subduing the knife's flash and making it less noticeable. The hollow-ground 8Cr13MoV blade is available with a plain or a combination plain/serrated cutting edge. Shaped like a comet, the blade's hole indicates it's a byrd model, and represents the quality standards and tight tolerances found throughout the byrd line. Capping the blade's spine is a series of crosshatching the knife industry calls jimping. Jimping reassuringly grips the thumb keeping it from slipping while cutting. The Cara Cara's right-hand configuration has predrilled holes for attaching the clip to carry tip-up or tip-down. Finger choils along the handle's underside create the sensation that the knife is an extension of the hand. Cut out of the lock's release is a safety feature called a David Boye Dent allowing you to tightly grip the handle without fear of accidentally releasing the lock.
