My black Cara Cara and Meadowlark arrived yesterday. I was surprised to see that both appear to have a fused powder coating rather than the traditional black oxide or titanium diffusion coating. I expect this coating will hold up reasonably well based on our use of it in my real-life job. It will be interesting to see how this works out.
I have several questions for either Kristi or Sal regarding the Byrd line. Here goes:
1. Both of these black Byrds came in blister packs rather than in the previously used boxes. Is this the way of the future for all Byrds?
2.Assuming that this a fused powder coat finish, what is the polymer that you are using?
3. Any word on the availablity of the Robin and the Finch?
4. Sal, you have mentioned FRN handles for the Byrds in several threads. When will we begin to see these?
Thanks in advance for your replies to these questions.
Best - Joe
