Description
SPBY04GP2: BY04GP2 Meadowlark 2 G10
byrd Knife Designed by Spyderco

Upgrade alert! byrd knives are the subject of a number of engineering refinements for 2010 with improved ergonomics, four-way clips and full-flat ground blades. Like Spyderco knives, byrd knives are subject to our penchant for C.Q.I. - Constant Quality Improvement. As manufacturing processes and material availability improves, so do the byrds.

The newest evolution of the Meadowlark is the Meadowlark2 with a G-10 handle. It has a full-flat ground high performance 8Cr13MoV blade. Shaped like a "comet" the hole in the blade symbolizes quality and careful manufacturing tolerances. On the blade’s spine is a group of crosshatching called jimping. Jimping enhances the thumb’s grip on top of the blade making cutting slip-resistant. Available for the first time with a four-way clip that carries tip-up/tip down or left/right-handed, it attaches inside a pant’s pocket where it rides deep and confidently. A finger choil enhances the ergonomic G-10 handle adding comfort and control. Mid-positioned back lock has a David Boye cut away dent, a safety feature allowing the handle to be tightly gripped without unintentionally releasing the lock.

Cons: None
Worthy Of The Spyderco Name
This is an excellent knife! The G-10 scales are attractive and comfortable, the blade was razor sharp out of the box. There is a lot of strength for the money and I have confidently used this knife in hard use survival scenarios without any failures. 8Cr steel is excellent and easy to maintain.. This knife will last you a lifetime.

Good faithful knife!
When I look 1st time to Byrd knives, was because my pocket was a bit empty for a Spyderco. I have a Manix2 and a Tenacious, but want a small knife and its rich brother Delica was expensive for me. When I received it and unpack, was like to see a stray dog looking at me and saying: "Trust me! I will serve you better than any other!". I start to put it in my shape, invert the clip for tip up left side, sharpen it better than came (good but not razor), and tie a paracord lanyard to it. The result is a happy knife and a happy owner. As knife fighting instructor, I can recommend it as a defensive tool, because it is strong and lightweight, it have a good steel easy to sharpen, and the ergonomics is flawless! Now it take home inside my pocket and bypass the beefy Manix2. My stray dog have served me many times! I am more than happy and ordered his big brother Cara-Cara! 5 stars knife!

Great Knife
The one I got is flawless. The only difficulty I have is the strength of the lock spring which makes it very difficult to flick it open. And I liked the hollow grind of the older version a little better as it has a finer edge. The Meadowlark has the perfect EDC size for the tasks I put it to. It is slim and the G-10 handle feels perfect, neither too rough nor too smooth. I don´t like those pocket clips but as I have a screwdriver I do have a solution...
