    Meadowlark and Caly3

    Hello, new here. I own a CF Caly3, but was interested in the Byrd Meadowlark. Anyone have pictures of these 2 knives together they could post?

    Welcome Bro

    First off welcome to the forums-stay here bro-very valueable info you'l get.
    Second you have a real gem there WRT the CF Caly3-way better than the Byrd Meadowlark,and i mean Way better.
    third use the Caly3 for all your exquisite cutting needs,then get the Meadowlark and use the heck out of it,for all hard use tasks.

    Thanks Manix. That's exactly why I was interested in the Meadowlark. I don't want to put the Caly3 to any hard use, and the price on the Meadowlark is too good to pass up.

    More like comparing a shriveled old orange to a succulent, ripe, juicy apple.

    Both Ferrari and Toyota will get you from A to B

    However, the Ferrari would make the trip a bit more enjoyable, not to mention that hot blonde in the passenger seat .... OK, OK, she can also sit in the Toyota, but you get what I mean

    Now get yourself a CF Walker Sage. I love my CF/ZDP-189 Caly like my daughter, but I just keep reaching right over it to grab my Sage for "social work". I just love that dadgum knife and carry it anytime I can make an excuse not to carry my CF/S90V Millie (although the Manix got some pocket time today.).

    Are you just pullin on our collective chain's there sixheads ? If not then I would like to know more as to the reasons why you would choose the byrd steel. I need tipping over the edge on this steel, so that I can buy a wings.

    O,just,O

    I am not pulling ur chain, i have a caly jr zdp its is a great little knife and i keep it so i have a zdp blade but i very rarley use it. I do not like sharpining ZDP it takes time and many strokes on the sharpmaker. The byrd steel is great , i usually get combo edges and they hold a good edge get really sharp and sharpin easy and fast.

    I am not trying to start anything i am sure there are peeps who love and prefer the zdp and i understand that but i am not that person.

    my fav steel is VG-10 , then byrd steel. I love byrd knifes cheep enough to use and abuse (if you have to) and great solid products. I have also thought about a wings. but i like the combo edge frn meadowlarks light and usefull.

    Thank's for that, sixheads. As I do not have either a ZDP blade or a byrd I really cant compare, and your answer sounds good to me.

    I bought a Byrd Meadowlark and had enough money left over to purchase a bag of oranges and one of apples.
    Use your blades in the kitchen, it's great bonding time!

    I got a new Meadowlark combo edege. While it is no Caly 3 it is an excellent knife.

    If funds were tight a medowlark (or any byrd) would make a fine edc. I have many and use them for work and to take to the beach or places were an exspensive spydie might get lost or taken.
