    Black Byrds

    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

    Hi Joe,

    1. The black Cara Cara and Meadowlark were requested by the Military and they wanted clampacks. we're struggling with the decisions and methods to provide both.

    2. The coating info is at the office, I'll chase it down for you next week.

    3. The Stainless Robin and Finch are scheduled to begin shipping in December.

    4. FRN Starling and FRN Finch will appear first, probably a couple of months. They are the very small versions (Ladybug size). We are still 6 months away from the FRN Cara Cara and Meadowlark.

    I infer that to mean it is a mini hawkbill?
