I am brand new here. Been a member of CPF for awhile and saw your forum recommended by one of the other members. Nice!
Back on topic. This Tern looks very nice! Probably the nicest looking Byrd I've seen so far. But, I have never tried a Byrd and have never had a slip joint knife for edc.
Anyone have any pros or cons for me?
I'm also looking at the Persistence. Would you recommend one over the other?
I appreciat any info you have for me!
Got my Tern about a week ago. At first I really liked the knife. Ergos are great, I have large hands and the knife fits nicely. Wire clip, BLACK handle, blade centered in the handle (something that's been a little hit and miss with the Byrds I've purchased.) However I find the lock up on the weak side. Pinching the handle between my thumb and middle finger with the blade open, I can easily push the blade closed with my index finger. Sadly, I think this knife is bound for desk duty as a letter opener.
lock. That you're finding the lock up weak isn't surprising.
