The smallest folder in the byrd line is the Finch. It is engineered to yield maximum cutting performance with a blade under two-inches. A ball chain threaded through the lanyard hole (included) can be used as a keychain or lets you attach the knife to a purse, loop or zipper pull. Designing a small knife that feels secure in an adult-sized hand can be challenging.
The Finch brings several elements together to elevate ergonomics and create purchase in the user’s hand. The inclusion of jimping (texturing) along the spine and a finger choil on the bottom of the handle let you wrap your hand around the folder for remarkable control and precision over the cutting edge. The back lock is positioned midway on the spine facilitating one hand opening and closing. The Finch’s blade is high carbon 8Cr13MoV stainless steel that is hollow-ground and available either fully serrated or plainedged. It is clipless.Specifications
