Description

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.
