Spyderco Byrd Meadowlark Hawkbill Folding Knife 2-7/8" Serrated Blade, Black FRN Handles - BY22SBK
SPBY22SBK: Meadowlark Hawkbill FRN
byrd Knife Designed by Spyderco
The knife industry loves acronyms and one frequently seen is the term FRN. It means “fiberglass reinforced nylon” which is a plastic material used in manufacturing knife handles because it’s lightweight, longwearing and not prohibitively expensive. One of the byrd line’s cornerstone models, the Meadowlark is available with FRN handles.
The FRN Meadowlark Hawkbill has slip-free texture, deeply molded into the plastic so it won’t slide or move around in the hand. Nested inside the handle are full-length steel liners adding rigidity and strength without unnecessary weight and phosphor bronze bushing for smooth open/close. The 8Cr13MoV stainless steel hawkbill blade is with a comet shaped hole so the folder opens and closes one-handedly. On top of the blade’s spine is a series of crosshatching the knife industry calls jimping. Jimping creates tactile resistance, gripping the thumb and keeping it in contact with the top of the blade while cutting. Features a 4-way pocket clip for left or right-handed, tip-up or tip-down carry. Cut out of the lock’s release is a safety feature called a David Boye Dent allowing you to tightly grip the handle without fear of accidentally releasing the lock.

The lockback system has been used for many decades. It can usually be found on the knife spine and it provides a strong lockup that will wear well.
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
A nylon polymer that is lightweight and extremely durable, Zytel can be shaped and textured to provide excellent grip.
Considered a value steel, 8Cr13 steel provides adequate corrosion resistance but with slightly more carbon than AUS-8, it will sharpen up and hold an edge better.
