Meadowlark® Stainless Black Blade
For those who prefer all black knives, the byrd knife line now offers the BY04BK stainless steel Meadowlark. Its handle and blade are coated with black electric plating that eliminates the steel's reflective quality subduing the knife's flash, making it less noticeable. The hollow-ground 8Cr13MoV blade is available with a plain or a combination plain/serrated cutting edge. Shaped like a comet, the blade's hole designates it's a byrd product and represents the quality standards and high manufacturing tolerances found throughout the line. Capping the blade's spine is a series of textured crosshatching the knife industry calls jimping. Jimping grips the thumb holding it steadily on the blade while cutting. The Black Meadowlark is right-handed with pre-drilled holes to attach the clip (also black) either tip-up or tip-down. On the handle's underside finger choils comfortably position your grip and create the sensation that the knife is a controlled extension of your hand. Cut out of the lock's release is a David Boye Dent, a safety feature so the handle can be tightly gripped without accidentally unlocking the lock while cutting.
