    Recommendation? First Byrd?

    I am really liking the Byrds and I am looking to add 2 or 3 new ones to my collection. Any recommendations on what I should get first? Thanks !

    I would recommend either the Meadowlark 2 or Cara Cara 2 as they are the equivalent of the two Spydercos that are most popular. I have a Tern and love it but you may not be a slipjoint fan. I had a bad experience with the Flight's edges being sharp and jabbing my hand when I reached into my pocket but that may have been an isolated incident. Any knife you choose is high quality and low cost so buy a few.
    Current carry: Spyderco Squeak or Spyderco Pingo (Back right pocket), Paramilitary 2 Black G10 (front right pocket)

    Future wants: Karahawk

    I second the Meadowlark2. Along with Robin2.
    For $10-15 more I recommend the G-10 handles. The FRN Pattern on the Byrds are different then the Spyderco modals, for me they dig in too much.

    Since you mention 2 or 3. Recommend as a 3rd recommendation the Wings (Comes as a Slipit or Back lock). Can't beat this one.

    I'd recommend a pattern that you don't normally use and/or want to try. For example, if you're new to hawkbills, the Crossbill or the "Hawkbill" model would be a good choice.

    Get the Byrd Wings before they're gone! They've been discontinued so, if you are a fan of two-blade knives, gotta get this one! the one I have is the steel bolster, g10 model! The quality and sturdiness of this knife have to be felt, especially at this price!
